A Day in the Life of a SacFoodie: Tasty Adventures in San Antonio
As a SacFoodie I have the opportunity to travel to many delicious cities across the country and San Antonio, Texas is my most recent stop.
I had the pleasure of attending a conference at the beautiful Culinary Institute of America campus in San Antonio on behalf of a client and got the chance to take in some of the city while I was there.
As home to a Culinary Institute of America campus, San Antonio is a foodie’s paradise with many great restaurants serving innovative cuisine. I uncovered one of these gems my first evening in the city; a restaurant called CURED that specializes in housemade charcuterie, mustards and preserved goods such as their uniquely delicious pickled strawberries. I definitely recommend a stop at CURED if you’re in town.
San Antonio is sometimes known as the “Venice of the U.S.,” and with one walk down its famed River Walk you’ll understand why. The River Walk definitely resembles the canals of Venice, complete with a gondolier and arched bridges. The River Walk meanders through the city center and is studded with restaurants, bars and shops. On a balmy May evening, a delicious dinner, a cold glass of Prosecco and a stroll along the river was a perfect way to cap off my adventures in San Antonio.
Oh, but you can’t leave San Antonio without a cheesy photo in front of the Alamo, so of course, I did that too!
