Everyone’s all pumped up for fish fry season, but here’s a bold thought. What if you don’t like them? Or you’re sick of the everyday basic fish fry? Yeah, believe it or not, those people exist.  We’re starting a series through the lent season to give you other options when you’ve had enough of the basic, average fish fry meal.

Lime House offers classic Japanese and Burmese dishes in Williamsville that are as visually stunning and colorful, as they are tasty. We’re all so programmed to head straight downtown because it’s home to a cluster of awesome restaurants, but don’t forget about the hot spots in the surrounding suburbs. Lime House has a large selection of seafood and vegetarian items perfect for getting you through those meat-free Fridays during Lent.


They have delicious apps like the shumai ($6) which are essentially steamed dumplings stuffed with shrimp, tofu salad ($8) mixed with cilantro, fresh lime juice, greens, and onions, and squid salad ($6) tossed with shiitake mushrooms, ginger, bamboo shoots, and a drizzle of sesame oil just to name a few.  They also offer an assortment of veggie and seafood tempura dishes ($8-10), classic sushi rolls (averages $7), delicious hand rolls like spicy salmon or spicy tuna ($6), poke bowls stuffed with salmon or tuna ($14), unagi bowl ($19) with BBQ eel and avocado, and so much more!

My personal favorite dish that came highly recommended was the drowning salmon ($10).  This dish is pure plate art if I’ve ever seen it and it tastes totally amazing. The drowning salmon is made up of thinly sliced salmon doused in spicy sauce, teriyaki crunched and sprinkled with green onion and fish eggs. It’s unbelievable and you seriously need to try it.
