What's Cooking?

« Bun Mang Vit from Tu Thanh | Main | Sagmani's Restaurant-Mediterranean (El Cajon) »

Monday, 02 December 2013



When we passed by yesterday on our way to church, we saw the superlong line (it was only 9:50 am too). we're down there every weekend so bert, tc and i will have to check this place out. the birria place is also near gonzalez panaderia (on Hollister) and further west on Coronado is Gloria's Bakery (which has more selection); they have those cookies that your wife likes, the Coricos (but packaged instead of individual at moreliana).


Hi CC - I've been told that the line gets insane here on the weekends. I've seen packaged coricos at a couple of places....I even bought some from Tropical Oasis...the Missus said they're not as good. I have a feeling there are a bunch of these under the radar places in the area.


What a gem. I'm still searching.
I don't get why some just do not enjoy tendon.


You're killing me... Looks absolutely delish


Oh man that birria looks sooo good right now since it's freezing today! I'm so glad to hear that it's beef too. I can't believe it's so busy at 8am. I've never been to Nestor but this place makes me want to make the trek there. I've never had birria but it looks like a hearty, spicy beef noodle soup? (Sorry, not sure what else to compare it to since i've never tried birria before).


Hi Billy - Google Birria or Barbacoa in San Antonio; there are several matches!

Hi Denver - Relatively mild in spices, but good beef flavor. I really enjoyed it.

Hi Faye - Birria is one of the classic hangover dishes; so that's why so many bleary eyed guys. There probably are quite a few hidden gems down in these parts....we just have to find them.


Unfortunately Barbacoa to Texans is PORK!!!!! AHhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!!!


LOL Billy! Sorry, but I find that funny. Try and Google Barbacoa de Borrego:

Taqueria El Chilaquil
1821 W Commerce St
San Antonio, TX 78207
Las Salsas
2018 San Pedro Ave
San Antonio, TX 78212

Birria de Chivo is goat, Birria de Res (what they serve here is beef)

Thank you for uncovering this great spot! Love birria and will have to try this sometime.


Hi JS - Give them a try. Really nice folks here.


looked and sounded good!


Hi Kat - The folks here are really nice. I don't think this is everyone's cup of tea, but I like the place.
