While we love the food scene in the Alamo City, we want you to know that it’s okay to get a little bit tired of barbacoa + big red.
That’s why we’re rounding up five places to find international foods in the 210.
Demo’s Greek Food, Three locations
With over four decades serving the community, Demo’s has been a staple for authentic Greek food — learn about the restaurant’s founder, Demosthenes Demetrius Karagas.
Try this: Gyro wrap — a rotisserie-sliced blend of beef and lamb wrapped in pita and served with fresh-cut fries.
The Lion Indian Cuisine, 8202 N. Loop 1604 W.
Head to the Northwest side for this home-cooked Indian eatery serving both vegan + non-vegan dishes.
Try this: Chicken tikka masala — Tandoori chicken cubes simmered in a fresh creamy tomato sauce.
🇮🇷 The Middle East
Jerusalem Grill, Two locations
Since 2004, this popular spot serves up scratch-made Middle Eastern cuisine. The restaurant has since expanded with a Far North location in Stone Oak.
Try this: Mixed grill kabob — skewers of lamb, chicken, and beef kofta served on a bed of rice, hummus, and Jerusalem salad.
Hoka Hoka Fuku, 11842 Bandera Rd.
With nearly one year since opening, this Far West Side restaurant has become a go-to spot for authentic Japanese sips + eats.

🇯🇲 The Caribbean
The Jerk Shack, 10234 TX-151
