San Antonio - Where to go for a great mojito?
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.

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)
