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.
