Coming in next week. Have seen 3 restaurants on the food channel that interest me.
Lulu's for chicken fried steak. Magnolia pancake haus for breakfast. The alamo pizza.
I have also seen Dough pizza mentioned on here, as well as blanco cafe for mexican. I'm more into touristy places that allow me to say "i went to SA and tried that" opposed to being a food critic that goes to a local shop because it is marginally better than the famous restaurant.
Please give your opinion on those places.
I am finally going to visit San Antonio tomorrow and would like to try a good place for Tex-Mex. I prefer a place that gives a large portion and won't totally hurt my wallet. I really like burritos and enchiladas if that helps. Any recommendations would be appreciated. Thanks!
My gf brought me a fajita taco from taco palenque and that reminded me I like fajitas. Ive lived here for years but never actually got them. Where can I go to pick up like a pound of fajitas that isnt taco cabana? Im looking for the best of the best.
So I decided to try this place out on Missions, they are absolutely very delicious. They are more of a Mexican BBQ, but man, they were delicious. Here is the menu and my order. I definitely recommend them, the hospitality was great, very clean.
I highly recommend Tang St. Chinese Restaurant. I got General Tao Beef and it was TO DIE FOR. Everyone in our party was very pleased with our food and the waiter was really excited to share his recommendations with us. You've gotta try it!
Howdy everyone, after Harvey last year my company sent me to Houston to help get those locations back up and gave my wife and I a hotel room near Houston’s Chinatown, and we had some fantastic Peking duck. I’ve looked and googled but I’m coming to the conclusion that it’s not something that can be found in San Antonio. Hoping someone here can prove me wrong.
I’m making dinner for a friend who just had twins. Wanna help me make a dish outta what I have at home ? Here’s what I got:
Canned good Black beans corn chicken breast tuna Peas Carrots Various soups Garbanzo beans Fire roasted diced tomato Tomato paste
Spices Recaito criollo Sofrito criollo Cum/paprika/pepper/chili powder/lemon pepper Bay leaves Tahini Garlic salt Furikake Garam masala Sesame/coconut/olive/vegetable oil Aloha soy sauce
Meat Turkey patties Frozen tilapia fillets Turkey burger meat
Starch White/brown rice (mixed) Sweet potatoes Corn tortillas Flour tortilla Spaghetti noodles Lentils
Various frozen/fresh fruits & veggies
The only thing; my friend isn’t eating spicy so can’t be spicy :/
I am interested to see what every one will conjure up :D
Looking for opinions on the best chile relleno in San Antonio. Just finished the beef relleno at El Jarro and it was solid. I also like Chuy’s relleno as they use anaheim as opposed to poblano peppers. New Mexico trail also uses anaheim peppers. All three are great. What am I missing?
So I was born in Mexico and lived in Tamaulipas before I came to the states. Grew up very familiar with the border towns of Nuevo Progreso (Las Flores) and Reynosa and their taquito options. When i was a kid in the states in the 80s, it was hard to find the same flavors.
The Rio Grande Valley in the past 10 years has grown to offer taquito options that are almost indistinguishable from the Mexican ones.
I am looking for the same here in San Antonio. I have had promising encounters with some places, but still can't find the one that is most like the taste that I grew up on.
Places I like:
Ericks Tacos on Nacogdoches
Gordo's Tacos on Foster Rd.
Los Balitos on Bitters
Taquitos West Avenue
These guys get so close!
Sometimes I think it's the quality of meat or the origin of the tortilla. But something is always a little off.
Anyway, if you guys know the flavor I speak of and have found something like it here in San Anto, point me to the place!
Hey, my wife and I are going to be in your town for a week in June. We love hitting up breweries here in Charlotte, NC and we'd love to hit up some of yours. Wondering if there were any places you'd say we HAVE to hit up. Seen a few lists on some blogs, but I wanted to check them against some locals. oh, and I guess we'll have to eat too, so if you have any favorite places for food, I'll take those too. (We're staying in Northwest San Antonio if that matters. Not sure how crappy it is to get around there.) Thanks
