Trying Different Restaurants - July 16 and 17, 2015

Bob and I like trying out new (to us) restaurants. On Thursday, July 16, we went to the Blue Star Arts Complex in Southtown San Antonio to try Blue Star Brewing. Neither of us felt like trying the beer, but we were hungry, so we chose to eat.

Blue Star Brewing makes their own brewskis on the premises.

Their brewing tanks are on display in the restaurant.
Bob ordered the mahi mahi fish sandwich which came with cole slaw and a green salad. He had the better meal.

I ordered the red curry chicken. Mine was lackluster. While the curry spice was prevalent, it just wasn't as good as curries I've had at Thai restaurants. Bob's salad was a beautiful mixed greens salad and I got a head lettuce salad, which I don't care for.

On Friday night, we tried to go to The Cove because we love the atmosphere and I love their organic burgers. Usually we have a hard time finding parking. This time we found parking right away, but when we got close to the restaurant, the line to order food was really long. We backtracked to the car and decided to go elsewhere.

Bob wanted to take me to The Luxury, another outdoor food place where the bar, kitchen and restrooms are in remodeled shipping containers. We eat outside at big picnic tables. Not exactly luxurious, but its location overlooking the San Antonio River is pretty nice.

I ordered a hot dog "dragged through the garden" (hot dog on a bun topped with 3 cucumber slices, and 3 tomato slices), and Bob had the crispy chicken sandwich. When we ordered we were given a plastic brontosaurus, because how else could our waiter find us? Our food was very good.

We enjoyed our food and our outdoor dining experience. Watching people walk by on the River Walk trail was a plus.

In San Antonio there are so many restaurants to choose from. You'll be seeing more of them.

Travel Bug out.
