Looking for Best Tinga [San Antonio]

I am looking for who has the best tinga in San Antonio. The people on campus seem to think that San Antonio only has TexMex, and while I have found several good Mexican places, I have yet to find one that serves good tinga. I go to Trinity, but I am willing to drive. Also I prefer chicken tinga, but I can do pork as well. Finally, my Spanish is just decent enough to get by at a restaurant without english. On a side note, I am also looking for korean if you have any recommendations.

  1. That's a good question - I've travelled all over Mexico and have never heard of it. Maybe somewhere like El Mirador which has very authentic Mexican dishes (they actually specialize in soups)

    1. You can try Guajillos.They are on 1001 N.W. loop 410,phone, 210-344-4119
      Their website is
      Iv'e never heard of tingas before, but did find some recipes for it.
      And by typing in tingas in San Antonio, I got SA Current's review of Guajillos.
      Also Acenar downtown has fancy duck tingas and i think also crabmeat ones.
