SAN ANTONIO – Scoop Eats has moved East from the Golden State of California to the Lone Star State of Texas as attention shifts from the Rose Bowl to the All-American Game.
That does not mean that we still don’t have our ample appetites for good food and while Tom Orr and Tony Gerdeman are back in the Buckeye State, we ran into Marc Givler in San Antonio for the week of coverage that gets underway on Tuesday morning with the nation’s top high school players converging on their all-star game with a mixture of committed and uncommitted recruits for the Buckeyes.
As we got into town the idea immediately came to our minds that a good Tex Mex meal would be in order and members from the Ask The Insiders Forum over on BuckeyeScoop had no shortage of ideas of places to go.
ALSO: Top of the Burger Chain?
The Original Blanco Café does not look like much from the outside, a red awning, a small logo and a pretty plain front hide some of the best Tex Mex cuisine around town. This place is known for its enchiladas, a meal that many places do but few do correctly.
We had the debate on Monday morning about what makes a cheese enchilada so good. Some people don’t see the perfection in the simplicity of the meal but once they have one that is done correctly, their world view changes.
And this is a place that has the chance to make an early mark in our race for the top meal during this trip to San Antonio, right out of the gate.
So, sit back and join us on our culinary tour around town for Scoop Eats as we try and give you a little extra flavor on this trip while we bring you everything from the All-American Game.
