I am looking for an advice about where to eat in San Antonio Downtown and in the north star mall area, I will be there for one week I will be staying in the area of the north star mall I will have a car...and I don´t mind to drive.
My personal preferences:
One good Chinese...
A good but moderate price steak house.
A good traditional homemade Italian Restaurant.
If you also have any favorite place for breakfast, lunch or a most go in San Antonio please mention it.
Mhhh also a good place to buy some desert
I am a big fan of the public markets with food...If you have any good choices please let me know.
As always I am open t suggestions by locals all the counseling and advice is welcome and truly appreciated.
Thank you all.
Steakhouses are mostly the chains (Morton's, The Palm, Ruth's Chris). Bohanan's is local, but it is very expensive and I didn't like the way they try to upsell on everything.
Good authentic Chinese is difficult to find here. China Inn on NW Military can be good, make sure you order from the Chinese menu, not the americanized one.
Kim Wah BBQ on Bandera is also good and there is a good asian market across the street, it's a haul from DT though.

Talk about upselling, we went to Little Rhein Steakhouse on the river on our honeymoon. It was a nice enough experience, good but not exceptional food, a romantic outside table on a beautiful fall evening, but the upselling started immediately. How a about a bottle of xyz wine, ninety bucks, or how about some bottled water, eight dollars. I like Ruth's Chris just fine, it never seems to be crowded, and they do a good steak.
