{Obsessed} La Fogata 

No time to write a full review because of the holidays, but here are some photos of delicious food from La Fogata, a very popular Mexican restaurant in San Antonio, Texas!

Pictured above are the Chicken Fajitas, Chicken Mole and a delicious cream cheese and fruit empanada with vanilla ice cream! :)

{Neighborhood Treasure} Sol Y Luna Baking Co.
Sol Y Luna Baking Co. is a wonderful little bakery located just a few minutes from my house in San Antonio. They’ve been around for a couple years now and they have consistently created the most wonderfully tasty baked goods, including my favorite red velvet cupcakes, oatmeal raisin cookies, and ham and cheese croissants. They also have really good artichoke and feta focaccia bread and spicy jalapeno, cheese and sausage kolaches. Really, all of their treats are so yummy!
Today, my mom and I stopped by for a visit and I tried a new-to-me sandwich, featuring mozzarella cheese, tomato and cucumber, with a really flavorful garlic spread and balsamic vinegar, sandwiched between two slices of what I want to say is sourdough bread. Truly the perfect, light midday meal from one of my favorite local bakeries.

Tastes Like Texas, Feels Like Home :)

I love Luby’s. This place serves up quintessential comfort food that leaves you feeling so happy and satisfied. With locations only mainly in Texas (with a few in Oklahoma and Arkansas), I really look forward to eating at Luby’s when I come home during vacations. Most importantly, Luby’s macaroni and cheese is what defines childhood in Texas. It’s pretty much what makes the world go ‘round. :)

{Restaurant Review} Thai Cafe
Warning: Thai Cafe is hands down the best Thai restaurant in San Antonio…maybe the best outside of Thailand, even. If you’re going to eat here, be prepared to have your taste buds completely blown and expect to want to come back the minute you leave.
Located on the northeast side of town on Perrin Beitel Rd., Thai Cafe is definitely my favorite place to eat in San Antonio. The restaurant itself is kind of small and hidden, so drive slowly once you’re in the area and look out for their blue roof. The friendly staff provides great service, but really, the best thing about this place is the food. The lunch buffet is heavenly, featuring about 20 different dishes, including my two favorites: Pad Thai and Thai spicy beef salad. Other honorable mentions in the buffet are the Pad See Ew and eggplant and basil. Everything is so flavorful and authentic. My mouth is seriously watering right now as I write this.
Bottom line: Thai Cafe really raises the bar for Thai food and Asian dining in general in the San Antonio area. If you’re ever in town, you should definitely check it out…I promise you’ll be very impressed.
