Boudro’s


Continuing travel took me to San Antonio, TX.  I had only heard good things about Boudro’s so had to check it out.  It is known as a Texas bistro per their website.  Was able to snag a table outside — though it only in the upper 40s in late November in TX (why???).  They do have nice blankets to cover you if you get cold.

Of course, a margarita is the #1 priority here.  It came in a nice martini glass in this case.  Very smooth and a perfect start to the evening.

The menu had way too many great options on it, but guacamole was a must.  They make it at your table, too.  It was delicious!  They use orange juice in it, versus a more traditional lime or lemon.  They also use roasted tomatoes which made it even better.  You can snag the recipe from their site.

When going to restaurants I usually try to order something I won’t make at home so I finally opted for the Mesquite Grilled Quail.  I was able to get grilled veggies vs the traditional pepper jack grits with fried parsley and jalapeno chips and chipolte demiglace due to my lactose issue.  This stuff was amazing!  I hadn’t eating quail for ages.  The flavors all around were amazing.

I can see why this restaurant has such a great reputation.  Check it out when you’re in San Antonio.
