Range for restaurant week. Great east coast oysters, yellowtail crudo and mushroom bisque. Sirloin had great seared crust and cooked to perfect medium rare and the brussel sprouts with orange gastrique are some of the best brussel sprouts in the city. The quail was a little overcooked, dry, and bland. Bourbon banana pudding was excellent and had some very tasty carmelized bananas on top. Martinis and wine list were great, but the beer selection leaves more to be desired.

Koreana. Teeny little hole-in-the-wall Korean restaurant on Harry Wurzbach. Love everything I've ever eaten there. Classic Korean dishes, prepared quickly and in proportions that guarantee you'll walk out stuffed (or with several carry-out containers). Very reasonably priced.

This visit, I had the kimchi fried rice with pork. Spousal Unit had the galbi. As usual, eight bowls of assorted cold vegetables came with the order, including kimchi, crystal noodles, mildly spiced bean paste, zucchini in pepper paste, shredded radish in rice wine vinegar with a dash of sugar (I consider this one dessert), and several others I can't identify but happily eat. Everything was delicious.

Each time I go to San Antonio, I'll drive out of my way just to eat at Koreana.

I read the reviews on Yelp and it was hit or miss, and I thought about how there are a few locations and afterall, what do native San Antonians really know about Cheesesteaks, so I decided to give them a try.

This place is my now 'GoTo' place for authentic Philly Cheesesteaks in San Antonio, or at least when I am too far away from Yous Guys. Especially when I'm running out for lunch during work. Order it true Philly style. No mayo, no peppers, just meat, onions and cheese. The right cut of meat, the right amount of onions and cheese. Even the bread was made in house. It's not quite Amaroso's, but almost.

Bring in some TastyKake if you can find it to seal the deal.
We like Yous Guys, and Malik's food truck ( it's usually on San Pedro towards the SAC area at a place called The Rose Garden and sometimes they have a truck parked at O'Connor and Wurzbach Parkway ) and we also like the steaks at Wise Guys on Thousand Oaks....all hands down better than Lenny's. We felt like Lenny's was just steak-umms and not really seasoned very well.

Texas de Brazil downtown for Culinaria. Prior to the Englebert Humperdinck concert at the Tobin. Dinner $35.00 instead of the normal $44.00.

Excellent! Delicious! Will visit again the next time they are part of Culinaria, hopefully in the fall.

Lenny's hot dip sandwich or whatever it is called...is really good. Unfortunately I can't stand their service so I don't bother going to the one near my house anymore.

The Lenny's by Alon market is pretty good and under different franchise than the one by my house.

This I don't understand. What kind of service do you expect from a sub shop where you walk up, place your order and when ready they bring it to your table? What more is there to it?

Well gosh, you make it sound so simple. What more is there to it?

My complaint was location specific (the one near my house on Callaghan) and not towards all Lenny's locations.

It is just poorly managed. I don't really care to get into the specifics either.

The Pod on Redland Road. Started with fried pickles but they weren't pickle chips, they were spears that had a terrible taste and the batter has an odd taste. Not good. We both ordered the original burger and neither of us enjoyed them. The best part of the meal was the fries, and they were probably the best fries I've had in a long time.

There's a huge playground for kids and the place itself is kinda cool but they need to work on the food.
