Mexican in San Antonio
This is a little last minute, but I'll be in San Antonio tomorrow. Where would you suggest for a good Mexican restaurant for dinner? Some place that serves nopales would be good, and I'm a sucker for game or other meats not common to American diets (tripe, tongue, etc.). Price and atmosphere are not issues, except I don't want to dress up for anything. Thanks for the help!
Guajillo's is awesome - my favorite. They don't have lengua or menudo - at least not on a regular basis . .but they do have a birria that I could vouch for.
If you've never tried it before you might want to try barbacoa - beef cheek or whole head - depending on where and how you order. If given the choice, this gringo chooses "all meat", lol. Can recommend Mimi's tamales and barbacoa . .or, if it's in the evening, Erick's Tacos has barbacao tacos that I like.
You could also go down to a Culebra Meat Market, pick up some barbacoa, a pack of corn tamales, a plastic tub of red hot salsa and a Big Red - a very "San Antonio" experience.
