Texas is such an amazing state and I feel so lucky to be able to travel and meet the faces and taste the flavors across the state. Everywhere I go, I hear praises of all the great things San Antonio is doing in the food scene. It has become quite the culinary center. When you’re looking for something quick, fresh and easy in the Alamo City check out The Station Cafe located in the historic King William District and Southtown. Check out the full segment by pressing “play” or clicking the link here.
So few restaurants do sandwiches well, but The Station Cafe does them phenomenally on their own housemade freshly baked bread and scratch-made sauces. Open for lunch and dinner, you won’t break the bank eating here, they keep their prices low which is great for how much they make in-house. They have stacked sandwiches like the Turkey Chupacabra; sweet & spicy Chupacabra serrano sauce is slathered on the housemade bread with a hearty helping of smoked turkey, melted cheddar, lettuce and tomato. Or their Station Reubenation; their special sauce which carries the rye flavor is drizzled on top of a pile Sauerkraut and double mozzarella to complete this sandwich. Perfect for the summer, their Salad Trio comes with their Tuna Salad, Pesto Pasta Salad & Chipotle Potato Salad on baby greens. And last but not least, they have indulgent desserts like Boston Creme Pie and Double-Layer Chocolate Cake.
Let’s not forget about fabulous wines. Right now, H-E-B has a 10% off sale on their Chilean wines on top of their 10% off of 6 bottles deal which is some of the best wine bargains on the market! The Nimbus Casablanca Sauvignon Blanc is a good food wine and great for sipping on the porch. Skyfall Vineyards Pinot Gris is crisp and refreshing, also a good food wine. Concha y Toro Gran Reserva Malbec is one of my favorites — raid my kitchen and you’ll surely find a bottle of this laying around! This wine pairs well with grilled meats, perfect for tailgating season which is right around the corner. The next luscious red, Juan Gil Jumilla, is great all by itself but is also good with steaks and roasted meats.
