San Antonio by night
(not taken during this work trip, but I still like this shot)
Ocho, San Antonio, TX
Nicely designed Cuban restaurant in downtown San Antonio
Ocho's manager said that "only cell phone photos are allowed" for some strange reason. Luckily, I will never see that person ever again, so...
Sadly, the Cuban sandwich was lacking in what I love most about Cuban sandwiches (and then some)
San Antonio, TX
The first of many historic buildings
Liberty Bar, San Antonio, TX

Quail from Liberty Bar, San Antonio, TX
Grilled whole quail with green mole, served roasted potatoes and tomatoes
The Clean Plate, San Antonio, TX
Seasonal, local food with an ever-changing menu. The kind of place that would thrive in Austin, and yet, in San Antonio, it was nearly empty.
Pork belly buns
The Clean Plate, San Antonio, TX. Loved these (as usual).
Fettucini special at The Clean Plate, San Antonio, TX
Fettucini with roasted squash, tomatoes, zucchini, mushrooms, and red peppers, tossed in a light pesto alfredo sauce (yes). A fantastic and beautiful dish.
Cheesy Burger from La Tuna Grill, San Antonio, TX
GREAT burger loaded with cheddar and jack cheese, tomato, caramelized onions, and a hefty portion of bacon.
Highly, highly recommended.

Pizza and burrata spread from Dough, San Antonio, TX
Burrata in a bath of hot tomato oil (?), roasted tomatoes, and garlic, served with house bread
The Friendly Spot, San Antonio, TX
All outdoor beer-hang, with 76 taps and 250+ bottles
The Granary 'Cue and Brew, San Antonio, TX
Finally got to check out The Granary, after having eaten Chef Tim Rattray's food at several BBQ events
And it was pastrami-Friday
I must always order pastrami.
Pastrami sandwich on housemade rye bread
The Granary Cue & Brew, San Antonio, TX
The Granary 'Cue and Brew
I liked the atmosphere of The Granary, but my coworker thought that it was too "fancy" for BBQ

The fuel behind the Granary 'Cue and Brew
And with that...
Back to Austin!
