San Antonio - Where to go for a great mojito?

onatrip Mar 21, 2010 01:58 PM

Several years ago we were introduced to mojitos while dining in San Antonio. Another trip is coming up soon.

Any suggestions for someplace on/near the Riverwalk that makes a can't miss mojito?

    On the riverwalk itself...Acenar/Atomar (adjacent to the Valencia), a bit further if you don't mind cigar aroma-Club Cohiba.
    A block off the river, Zinc (very nice hidden courtyard-a personal fave). About 4 longish blocks away (southtown), Azuca (best mojitos IMHO-also nice latin fusion menu)

      The menu at Azuca looks superb!

      So many mojitos ... so little time.

      Which is your favorite?

        Top shelf(10 cane) is good and reasonably priced, Capirinhas there are great also and they're the only place I know of in SA to get a pisco sour-enjoy your visit!!

            Another vote for Azuca! I go to SA about once a year and no trip is complete without a visit to Azuca. Mojitos are great as is just about everything else I've ever tried. The cornbread they serve is fabulous!

      Can't really speak to the mojitos at Azuca, but the food is some of the best in the city.
      Chef Rene Hernandez also makes wonderful desserts, at least I THINK he makes them
      himself! Also not to be missed is the seafood stew, served in a wash basin sized bowl, huge and delicious.

        We finally had our much awaited trip to San Antonio this past weekend. We loved the suggestion of Azuca!

        We couldn't decide upon two entrees so we asked for two plates and split them. Granted, the combination was an odd one but we loved both entrees. The first item we tried was the Cuban sandwich. Sandwich was delightful but the fries were not too special. The other entree we ordered was a salmon with crab mashed potatoes. I don't think I'll ever look at mashed potatoes the same way again! Who knew that putting crab in them would make them so special! Absolutely divine!! The mojitos were quite tasty. I had the mango and my friend had the prickly pear. Everything exceeded expectations. We split the flan since we were so full. We laughed that the dessert sampler sounded so tempting but for only 2 people, definitely overkill.

        We really appreciate the recommendation! I gave it four stars for the quality of the food. If the waiter had been more attentive, I wouldn't hesitate to give 5 stars.
