Dedicated to my med school friends who’ve been with me on this food adventure!
As my four years of medical school comes to a close at San Antonio, I decided to write a master post of one of my favorite topics and hobbies: FOOD.
From first year to these very last weeks, my friends and I have done our best with our limited time and money to sample what’s the best of San Antonio. I’m known in my class to have an Instagram that is basically a food Instagram, and I just wanted to close off my year with a compilation post of the best places to eat and drink in SA (in my opinion)!
(These aren’t full reviews – just my recommended places, hours, what to know, and what to order!)
Biga on the Banks
What to Order: Do a tasting menu! Around $70-80 depending on 5 or 6 course meal. Really, really fills you up and gives you a good view of what their menu is like!
What to Order: Oyster sliders, George’s Bank Sea Scallops (some of the best scallops I’ve ever had! So buttery and tender)
What to Order: Pig cheek poutine, charcuterie boards
Boudro’s on the Riverwalk
What to Order: House guacamole (they make it at the table for you!)
Alchemy Kombucha and Culture
What to Order: Ramen. The great thing about this restaurant is that the menu changes often and by season so there is always something new to try.
What to Order: Southern fried chicken, 3 piece hot
Max & Louie’s New York Diner
What to Order: Pastrami chili cheese fries, philly cheese steak, reuben sandwich
Mash’D – The Rim
What to Order: The menu often changes and you can usually find something good on there to order.
The General Public
What to Order: Bone marrow, Fish ‘n’ Chips
Pam’s Patio Kitchen
What to Order: Chicken saltimboca
Didn’t Get to Try (but heard good things about from other people): Bella on the River, Restaurant Gwendolyn, Periphery, Picnikins Patio Café, Southerleigh, Supper, Josephine Street, Signature, J Alexander, The Fig Tree, Luce
