River Walk is to San Antonio what Bourbon St is to NOLA. Restaurants, shops, walks etc. The San Antonio River Walk (also known as Paseo del Río) is a network of walkways along the banks of the San Antonio River, one story beneath the streets of Downtown San Antonio, Texas, USA. Lined by bars, shops and restaurants, the River Walk is an important part of the city's urban fabric and a tourist attraction in its own right.
Like most big cities, San Antonio had a rundown section of town where industry had left. The Pearl District, named for the departed Pearl Brewery, re-imaged this part of town into a vibrant destination for tourists. Add in dozens of restaurants, shops, and apartments, and you get a real sweet neighborhood that has a great vibe and something for everyone. Had an amazing brunch at Boiler House, situated in approximately 6,000 square feet of restaurant space along with an expansive outdoor patio, many of the building's significant architectural features have been preserved and incorporated into the design of the restaurant. Executive Chef Jeff White's menu focuses on Texas ranchstyle grilling with wild game, seafood and the freshest local ingredients available.
A puffy taco is not a crispy taco, a crunchy taco, or a soft taco. It is strictly a puffy taco, and after having one (or three), you may be willing to forsake all other taco forms. They seem to be a San Antonio thing, we had ours at Oscar's Taco House.
Oh, but there is more to San Antonio than just food and River Walk. There's the Alamo, downtown area and, of course, cowboy boots!
