San Antonio's Best Quality Daughter is the only Texas dining spot to land on USA Today's list of the 10 best new restaurants in the United States.

The innovative Asian-American eatery opened its doors in November 2020, serving unexpected bites such as crab boudin and Oaxaca cheese egg rolls in a fun, colorful atmosphere. It's helmed by local chefs Jennifer Hwa Dobbertin and Quealy Watson, the team behind Tenko Ramen.

Best Quality Daughter ranked ninth on USA Today's list, ahead of Kan-Kan Cinema and Brasserie in Indianapolis. San Francisco's Empress by Boon topped the eclectic restaurant roundup.

A panel of experts partnered with USA Today editors to select a list of nominees. The 10 winners were determined by popular vote.

Best Quality Daughter is located at 602 Avenue A in the Pearl shopping complex's historic Mueller House. It serves both lunch and dinner.
