Culinaria: San Antonio's Restaurant Week

We’re very lucky in San Antonio to live in a hub for amazing restaurants and delicious food. Even more lucky for us, San Antonio’s Restaurant Week begins next week allowing you to go on a culinary tour of our beautiful city. Sample the best of the best without forking out tons of cash. Chefs will be going all out during the week to show off for the new patrons who will be making their rounds. Make sure you don’t miss out on this spectacular opportunity.

You can take your pick between lunch or dinner at Tier 1 and Tier 2 restaurants. The Tier 2 restaurants will be a little pricier but worth the extra dough.

In Tier 1, you’ll find restaurants like Bavarian Brauhaus, Cover 3 and Kimura Ramen Shop. You’ll find some really fabulous meals all for a really great price at every restaurant on the list but we wanted to give you a little pre-taste of what you’ll find at a couple of the restaurants.

Betos Alt-Mex has a small but delicious menu ready for you for this year’s Culinaria. For lunch, you’ll receive a cup of fideo as a starter and then you’ll get to take your pick from an empanada, taco or quesadilla. You’ll also receive a dessert empanada and a coffee. For their dinner menu, you’ll receive their famous Chalupa Cabra appetizer as well as Peruvian style ceviche. For the main course you’ll get your choice of any two empanadas, tacos or quesadillas. Drink a glass of wine with your dinner and make sure you save room for your dessert empanada with ice cream. Follow it up with a coffee to round out the meal. To see their menu check it out here. Beto’s is a short 15 minute drive away from us at the Residences at La Cantera.

Zocca Cuisine d’Italia is situated right on the Riverwalk so not only will you have a delicious meal, you’ll also have a beautiful view. Take a seat in their restaurant or take it outside to the riverside patio. Their Tier 1 menu is to die for, of course! With three courses for both lunch and dinner, you’ll be so full and happy you’ll never want to leave this riverside restaurant. For the first course of lunch take your pick from some soups or locally grown lettuces. For the main course, choose between spaghetti or a Muffaletta panini. Don’t forget to save room for the final course! Tiramisu or Opera Torte are your choices but you can’t go wrong with either. For the dinner menu, you’ll have your choice between bruschetta or kale and figs. For the main course, chicken fettuccine or linguini pescatore are your options. The third and final course includes either a chocolate pizza or creme brulee. There are no wrong choices here. Zocca Cuisine d’Italia’s fabulous Restaurant Week deliciousness is only 20 minutes away from La Cantera at the Riverwalk.

Tacos and Tequila is stepping it up for its Tier 2 menu selections. Their tacos, skewers and burritos come straight from the grille to your plate so it’s fresh as can be. For their lunch offerings, their first course will bring with it smoked tomato soup or tortilla soup. The main course consists of a street taco plate with your choice of tacos followed by mini churros for dessert. Dinner will take it up a notch with TNT “Not”chos for 2 as your starter. The main course will get you a TNT Taco combo with 2 tacos of your choosing and your choice of side. Don’t forget to save room for the amazing Bolsa Cheesecake for 2 that’s coming your way after dinner. Tacos and Tequila is located only 20 minutes away from the Residences at La Cantera so you won’t have to worry about a long drive home with a full belly.

Culinaria is one of the best weeks of the year in San Antonio. Don’t miss out on your chance to try some of the best food in the city at some really amazing prices.
