Springtime is the most spectacular time of the year in San Antonio. Goodtaste.tv linked with the always impressive Chef Manny Elizondo of Boudro’s/Zinc to get the goods on one of the most popular dishes that BOTH restaurants are serving up as we speak: duck carnitas.
Hands down one of the most spectacular places in all of Texas to be this time of year is Boudro’s on the beautiful San Antonio River Walk. Goodtaste caught up with this Texas Bistro’s magnificent chef, Manny Elizondo, for a fabulous new field mushroom appetizer — made with a gorgeous variety of mushrooms raised in Gonzalez, Texas.
These are the most delicious sliders you’ll ever try! And I’m prepared to back up that statement. There’s something different underneath these toasty buns…lamb. Incredibly fresh lamb, ground in-house daily! Chef Manny walks you through the steps to make them at home.
Talk about a money saver! Buy your chickens whole, learn to properly cut them up and then use the scraps for chicken stock. A whole chicken saves you BIG BUCKS at the grocery store. You’ll be surprised at how many meals you can squeeze out of just one!
It’s not too often that one of the most popular tourist restaurants on the River Walk is also one of the most popular restaurants with locals too. Yes, Boudro’s just keeps on delivering! You have got to try their famous tables side guacamole, their Prickly Pear Margarita and the Texas Martini (jalapeño stuffed olives anyone?), but add another item to that list.
