San Antonio Hidden Gems
We crammed so much in during our Race to the Alamo trip to San Antonio that I had to post another article on all the great places to dine while in this awesome Texas town!
I must give big props to Hotel Contessa, for having great veggie options for breakfast as well as at their restaurant. Every morning, I dined on cereal or oatmeal with soy milk, fresh oj and fruit. At the bar, I ordered a delicious Spanish chick pea appetizer that staved off my hunger and put a smile on my face. The hotel was beautiful, right on the Riverwalk and their rooftop pool took the cake!
On our welcome night, we had a great meal at The Vault. A special events banquet hall owned by Boudros, this old bank was neat to dine inside of and yummy to eat at. Fresh guacamole, prickly pear margarita’s and a portobello steak set the tone for the rest of the week. Mouthwateringly awesome!
One our first race day, we were taken to eat Mexican street food at La Gloria Ice House, located in the Pearl. Bustling with excitement, Chef Johnny knocks his gourmet version of street food out of the park. Everything that comes to your table is fresh and tasty. And he treated me like a VIP by piling up a ton of veganized options like his giant tostada, Mexican pizza and more! It’s a hip location and the food is ever hipper!
