You were expecting tacos, right? The Sunday Traveler, and San Antonians also, like a cake or two now and again. San Antonio is a culturally diverse city that enjoys to eat, and there are so many restaurants and varying foods to enjoy while there. I have been known to take many a photo of food when it arrives at my table when on travel, but suprisingly, this last trip to San Antonio in January seems to lack said photos in my camera file. I like to think I restrained myself from taking so many photos in a restaurant, but truth be told, when the food arrived all I can remember is grabbing my fork instead of my camera. There are photos of the restaurants themselves that I took while waiting for the food to arrive, but I promised food last week, so here are just a few photos from Beto’s Restaurant that were taken on this last trip
A taco of pork carnitas that I opened up to show you the contents of, and to the right a novelty of sorts in a restaurant, an empanada, a pie/turnover like filled pastry with meat inside, a taco in a turnover/pie. And of course, the required bowl of pinto beans as a side.
And then there was the dessert empanada! Definitely delicious.
The only two other photos of foods were taken in a bakery/restaurant called La Panaderia (The Bakery), that serves meals as well as the famous Mexican sweet breads
If you want only the bread, you grab a tray and tongs and go along the line selecting what you want to purchase
Hard choices to make here.
Going back through photos and not finding many of the San Antonio food was a revelation to me. I was lacking in my work. I must return and do a better job of it.
Until next time. Keep on traveling and enjoying it all.
