Vegetarian Asian Cuisine [Eat]

I am not vegetarian but I definitely enjoy it, especially if it’s flavorful. Recently, the same owners of Green Vegetarian Cuisine and Earth Burger opened an Asian restaurant called Bok Choy-Plant Powered Asian.

One of my favorite cuisines is the Asian and not too long ago, I creating an obsession with the Vietnamese soup, Pho. This delicious soup is one of my preferred (aside from my mom’s “caldo tlalpeño”).  So, my friend, knowing that, invited me to try the vegetarian version of it.

We started with some Vietnamese Fried Spring Rolls [Crispy rice paper rolls stuffed with tofu, carrots, noodles, potatoes, and mushrooms] They were delicious! Then I obviously ordered the Good Pho You Bowl [Rice Vermicelli in a fortified herbal broth, with fresh basil, bok choy, broccoli, jalapenos, carrots, bean sprouts, shiitake mushrooms, scallions, and tofu].

The pho from Bok Choy definitely meet all my expectations. The shiitake mushrooms give it a lot of flavor. It has been one of my favorite vegetarian pho, so far. This is a great place if you want to eat good and healthy!


Some items on the menu say they come with BBQ Beef or Chik-n, but don’t be fooled, this place is straight vegetarian/vegan. 

Bok Choy is located at 5130 Broadway, San Antonio, TX 78209, to see full menu visit


La Siberia "Best Tostadas in Town" [Eat]

This weekend I visited a new Mexican restaurant in town, "La Siberia Taquería". Although, they are extremely famous in Matamoros-Brownsville (my hometown) this is my first time trying them. I even remember my mom talking about how she would go there all the time to eat tostadas with her friends, when she was younger.   

I was craving Mexican food so bad and wanted something that tasted like home and this place really hit the spot! They make authentic Mexican food. Plus, their tortillas are handmade and fresh; what else can you ask for?

I ordered their famous “Tostada” [guac, chicken and sour cream] I added pickled onions with habanero and jalapeño. It was super delicious!  To drink I ordered my favorite Mexican drink “Jamaica” (Hibiscus), which is also freshly made there.

My boyfriend ordered the “Tacos Pirata” on corn tortillas [fajita, sausage, bacon, mozzarella cheese, onion, and cilantro in 4 handmade tortillas]. My mouth is watering as we speak. They were delicious too! We were extremely happy! Although we were pretty satisfied, we wanted to try the fresh flour tortillas as well, so we ended up ordering a “Taco Pirata” on Flour! It was AMAZING! (we shared, the tortillas are huge, as you can see)

If you are craving authentic Mexican food, I totally recommend this place. It’s like you never left home! They even have the "Cueritos en Escabeche" which reminded me of my grandma’s house. 

La Siberia Taqueria is Located at 6900 San Pedro Avenue, Suite # 113 San Antonio, Texas 78216. To see complete menu visit,

You will probably need to wear stretchy pants, because you will end up ordering the whole menu.
