In the Southern Texan city and home of the Alamo lies an irresistible selection of cuisines. Not only is Tex-Mex and soul food the undiscovered treasure, there is a hidden selection of diverse dishes waiting to be revealed. From vegan Mexican food to a romantic dinner on the river-walk, San Antonio’s metropolitan area should be on the itinerary for your next trip.
Located in downtown San Antonio, the River-walk is the heart of the city with fine dining for all occasions. For the romantics, Bella on the River is a highly recommended restaurant serving French and American cuisine.
Its location directly on the river-walk and upscale decor is sure to please your fiance, husband or wife. One of the prized dishes include the Pasta Alla Norma. This delicious dish consists of thin Spaghetti with Fresh tomato sauce, sweet Italian sausage, and grilled eggplant. As I dip my eggplant in the garlic sauce, I assure you that this is the dish for royalty. Order a glass of Red Moscato (Sangue di Guida Dell’Oltrepo Pauese) and listen to the waiter tell the story of the ancient fig tree that continues to grow out of the wall. Your significant other will definitely have an unforgettable time!
Another hidden gem is the delicacy of Scuzzi’s. This Italian grill provides excellent service, fancy dining, and great food at an affordable price. Located in Northeast San Antonio, it is a must-dine for Pasta enthusiasts. Enjoy a huge bowl of Pasta for less than $15.00.
Try the beef stuffed Pasta Ravioli and you will not be disappointed. The service was comparable to a high-end restaurant but this place works for the budget-minded (your pockets will thank you later).
Exit Texas and enter Caribbean cuisine. Little Jamaica Bar & Grill is a place you can jab jab your fork into irresistible brown stew chicken. This small restaurant (but high quality) is another recommended spot located in the city of Lights also known as Windcrest. This section of the Metropolitan area brings the West Indies to South Texas. Grab a beef patty to go if you are traveling like myself (2 for $5.00 is very decent).
San Antonio is not only diverse in culture but also has various selections for all dining types including entertainment and the arts. The King William Cultural and Arts District provides artistic and alternative dining. Continue reading “A Taste of the San Antonio Metropolitan”
