Malinalli Bakery & Bistro [Eat]

This weekend one of my friends invited me to try some original Mexican "Tortas Ahogadas" which means in English "drowned sandwich." She kept telling how amazing they were so I had to try them for myself. 
This cute bakery and bistro has an array of tortas, from Ahogadas with pork to Portobello (for those vegetarians). I got there and I didn't even look at the menu, since I was very determined to have the Torta Ahogada [Golden pork carnitas, black beans spread, escabeche radish, avocado and the tomato chile broth]. The torta was amazing, all the ingredients in between and then dipping it in the tomato-chile broth was an explosion of flavors in my mouth! They also have aguas frescas, caldos and many other great food! Here is the menu so you can see for yourself: Malinalli Menu

We also had a delicious short cake with raspberry. I was looking at the menu right now and I am definitely going back to try many other things!

My favorite thing is that they bake their own bread and pastries! And my least favorite is that they close at 2:00 pm everyday! 

Malinalli is located at 2211 NW Military Hwy #127A, San Antonio, TX 78213

Rosario's [Eat]

This week I had the opportunity of having lunch at Rosario's.  I had been there a long time ago,  for dinner and drinks during first Friday. I remember just moving to San Antonio from Mexico and thinking every single "Mexican" restaurant was Tex-Mex, which I thought I didn't like. I didn't have anything to eat that day only drinks but I perfectly remember the atmosphere being loud and lively. Also, the decorations and the paintings gives it the perfect touch. 

After many years I finally tried their food! I found out it is real Mexican Food. The owner Lisa Wong, is half Mexican and half Chinese, but living in San Antonio, I would say she is more Mexican.  
I ordered from the lunch special, which is very affordable for the quality. I had "Pollo al Chipotle" [Chicken with Chipotle sauce over a bed of spinach, rice with cilantro, charro beans and of course home made flour and corn tortillas].  It was delicious and I would have loved to have had some margaritas, but I was on my lunch break and had to return to work.  I am definitely going back during dinner and enjoy the live music with some drinks. 

Rosario's has two locations, South Town and North. visit for more information.
