South Congress Cafe
My husband and I are visiting for a couple of days from Phoenix. I had done a little homework on the board but we hadn't fixed a destination for dinner last night. We headed to South Congress, parked, and the first place we came to was South Congress Cafe. The menu looked interesting and it was too chilly and windy to walk further, so we took a chance. Other than sharing a queso flameado with chorizo which was rather ordinary (good homestyle tortillas, though), my Asian marinated quail and his jalapeno venison meatloaf were outstanding. The bill was very reasonable -- about $68 including two cocktails for both of us. We would definitely go back if we lived nearby.
Glad you liked it. In the same area I recommend Enoteca Vespaio for italian food. Also for interior mexican food drive to Curra's Grill on Oltorf; not too far from that area.
I am rarely disappointed at South Congress Cafe, ever. I'm glad you went there. I second auspr on Enoteca Vespaio, it is one of my favorite restaurants. For pizza, also on South Congress, is Salvation Pizza. It is very good pizza, however, there is usually a long wait. But I say it's worth the wait!
