Where to find yuzu in San Antonio

I'm trying to find yuzu juice, but am having no luck. I tried Tim's oriental grocery off of Bandera, and they not only didn't have it, but they didn't understand what I was asking for, either. Whole Foods doesn't carry it, I didn't see it at Central Market...I'm at a loss.

San Antonio--can't misses?

Dough off of 410 and Blanco (I think) is phenomenal. Go before 6 pm, and definitely get the burrata. Chef Horn is a CIA grad, and spoke at our graduation (at the CIA Pearl Brewery). Their pizza is incredible, but that burrata....yowza!

Transporting fried food?

Hi all,

I've been asked to provide fried pickles for a meeting at my fiance's hospital. I have NO idea how to transport them without them getting soggy or cold. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated. Apparently I can't transport and set up my deep fryer in the hospital due to fire code. Silly fire codes!

Anyway, if you could email me a solution to Kristiecia@gmail.com I'd be uber-grateful

Medical Center, San Antonio

My fiance and I just moved here and have slowly but surely started to find decent eateries. Nobody our age seems to be anywhere (late twenties)... but I guess they're probably in the downtown areas, not out here in the 'burbs with those of us who decided a good kitchen was more important than having a social life ;) We really liked Grissinis (quarry) and El Jarro De Arturo (up north). Google them for addresses... El Jarro makes the tortillas in a little booth in the center of the restaurant and has inventive, upscale Tex-mex menu items. More imaginative than many of the restaurants. Grissinis was just "good" italian. Better than any chain.

(SA) ISO location for dinner for 7 on Sat Night

This is going to sound ridiculous, but for a fun (if a bit generic) edible experience, Sea World has the hospitality house. They give you free tastings of lots of different Anheuser-Busch beers, along with cheese, chocolate and grapes. If you play your cards right, you can get pretty sauced and enjoy some smoked Gouda....All for free!
