Steak & Whisky [Eat]

A photo posted by Treast (@treastblog) on

After work I sometimes go for a run to the river extension on Pearl. On my way there I always drive by Josphine St. All the lights and the old building always catch my attention. I would see from the outside people having dinner, it looks so cute and romantic. Finally, I had the opportunity to visit Josephine St. the place is cozy, vintage and the atmosphere is friendly and laid-back. I love the fact that a 500-year-old tree is in the middle of the place, it makes this restaurant even more unique and charming. Also, the bar makes me think I am back in 1905.

I ordered the 7 oz Peppered Bacon Wrapped Filet [served with cilantro lime sauce or lime herb butter and course cracked pepper on top] as a side I ordered the Green Beans, which are one of the best green beans I’ve ever had (aside from the ones my aunt Betsy cooks). My boyfriend ordered the El Rey Burger [seasoned, juicy beef dripping with cheddar and topped with avocado slices, pickled jalapeños, mayo and house made ranchero sauce - caramelized tomato, onion, garlic and fresh jalapeños] and a side of onion rings. Those onion rings are too good they put them in every dish, I think. If you order something and there are no onion rings, make sure to order of side of them! They are delicious!

Finally, the best part of all, dessert! I was so full, but it was my birthday so, we ordered the Peach Cobbler with ice cream. It is the BEST Peach Cobbler I have had in my entire life (31 years to be exact.)

It is always good to know they have a Spurs Bus, that takes you to the games if you have dinner with them that day! That is so cool!

Josephine St. is located at 400 E. Josephine Street, San Antonio, TX 78215To learn more visit,

Texas Wine Country [Travel]

A photo posted by Treast (@treastblog) on

As some of you may know, last week was my birthday! So, I decided to celebrate it drinking wine! Texas has beautiful vineyards, located north of San Antonio near Fredericksburg, TX. That area is called Texas Wine Country.  Me and some family members decided to experience the whole wine tour. We went to Grape Creek, which is my favorite vineyard in the hill country.

The weather was perfect! We got there at 1:00 pm and our tour was schedule for 1:30 pm. For $30 you get a tour with explanation, a wine glass and a private tasting. Their wine is delicious! You can become a member of their Wine Club and get wine delivered to your door, every month! Also, they have a trattoria where you can eat, or you can bring your own hors d'oeuvre. 
We had a great time! If you like wine and want to learn more about how it is produced, I totally recommend you to visit Grape Creek. It is a great experience. Plus, you will appreciate wine even more!

White + Blue [Steal]

White is the perfect color to use during spring and summer. I recently bought the white lace top with fringes at H&M for only $17 [steal]. I decided to wear all white and throw in some color [blue]. I just love the contrast between these two colors. I had in my closet the Rebecca Minkoff bag [steal] and some old Steve Madden blue shoes, that I forgot I had. They matched perfectly! These pictures were taken at the Pearl Brewery, last Sunday before heading for brunch. Outfit details are at the end of the post.

DIY Cactus Pot [Steal]

Last week I went to my local supermarket and saw a $2 plant sale! I wanted to buy them all, but first I had to make sure I was capable of keeping one alive. I liked a small furry cactus. I took him home and wanted to water him and then noticed that the pot was cracked. I had a plastic container that I recycled from some chopped fruit that I bought. I placed the cactus in the container and then had the idea of buying metallic spray paint, to make it look fancier. 

I headed over to Hobby Lobby and bought the paint for only $3 [I had a 40% off coupon].  
I wanted to share this great steal with you and also encourage to recycle! 

This is what you will need for the DIY Cactus Pot:

  • Recycled container
  • Krylon Foil Metallic Spray Paint (for a metallic finish) 
  • Plant 
  • Gloves (if you buy a cactus)


The General Public [Eat]

This weekend I had brunch with my lovely friends at The General Public. This is a new restaurant in San Antonio located at the Rim. The General Public describes itself as a sprinted neighborhood restaurant and bar committed to wholesome food and warm hospitality. They also claim to use familiar recipes and the freshest ingredients from personally known farmers.

They have a small menu, which usually means the food is really good. The decorations and the bar give the restaurant a cool and hip vibe.

We all ordered different, and of course I had to try from my friends too.

I ordered the Bacon Burger [egg bun, bacon aioli, lettuce, tomato and cheddar], I know it sounds mainstream, but the ingredients make a difference. The bun was so soft that it melted in my mouth. The meat was so good and of course bacon makes everything even better.  It was delicious!

Lauri ordered the Green Chili Grilled Cheese [ Jalapeño cheddar bread, muenster, American & green chili gravy] yes it tastes as good as it sounds!

Fernanda ordered the Chicken Apple Club [sourdough, mayo, lettuce, avocado, green apple & bacon] this was a tower of flavors! The sweet and salty gave it the perfect taste!

Mayra ordered the Mama’s Tamale Pie [guajillo and ancho chicken chili, toasted cumin, cheddar cheese & cornbread crust] if you are thinking it taste like a typical Mexican tamal, you are very wrong. I can say the flavor was more Tex-Mex, due to the cheddar cheese, and the sweet flavor. It was also very good and had an interesting flavor.

Sushi for Lunch [Eat]

There is a Japanese place in the same business center where I work. I always forget how good this place is. Today, I had a lot of meeting and did not feel like driving somewhere to get food. I decided to eat at Koi Kawa Japanese Restaurant & Sushi.
They have daily lunch specials and their sushi is to die for!

For starters, I ordered the Sara Special Sushi Roll [I do not know what it has, but trust me it’s amazing]. As a main dish I ordered the Chicken Teriyaki lunch special for only $6 [bento box with grilled chicken, steamed rice, 2 vegetable dumplings, green beans with peanut sauce, cabbage salad and miso soup.] As you can see in the picture it was delicious and nutritious.

They only have their lunch specials available Monday-Friday, from 11:00-3:00 pm.  Also, you will want to order more sushi after tasting the first bite!  

Koi Kawa Japanese Restaurant & Sushi is located at 4051 Broadway San Antonio TX 78209.


Sunday Brunch at Liberty Bar [Eat]

Brunch is the most important meal on Sundays, especially after having a crazy weekend! I usually go to brunch on Sundays with my friends.  This Sunday was not the exception! We decided to have brunch at Liberty Bar. This place is super good, either you want to have brunch, lunch or dinner. They re-purposed an old convent and made it a restaurant. They did a great job in the remodeling. Back to the food, we barely made it to brunch since it ends at 2:00pm.
I ordered the Huevos "New Braunfels” [scrambled eggs mixed w serrano, tomato, green onion & your choice of lamb sausage or pork sausage. served w/ black bean refritos, papas rancheras & house-made toast & jam.] and a cup of coffee, everything was delicious and just what I was craving.

My vegetarian friend ordered the Chilaquiles Norteños [sautéed legumes w/ poblano, onion, & crispy corn tortillas mixed w/ scrambled eggs. served w/ corn tortillas, vegetarian black bean refritos & roasted tomatillo salsa] she gave me some to try and they were delicious.

Liberty Bar is a great option for brunch, they make their food from scratch and the menu changes every now and then.


They only have brunch available until 2:00 pm.
