Culinary Adventures in the Alamo City
The Many Flavors of San Antonio
A trip to San Antonio is not complete without getting a taste of our vast culinary offerings. Explore all that the Alamo City has to offer – all while making plans to taste the flavors that helped us earn the title of one of only two UNESCO Creative Cities of Gastronomy in the United States.
Nestle in and enjoy your stay with us in a new modern luxury hotel, Thompson San Antonio, whose onsite restaurant Landrace is a must-try! But let's not get too full right away, we have many restaurants to pay a visit to throughout the city.
Today will be a culinary explosion as we begin at Schilo’s, one of the oldest restaurants in San Antonio that has been serving up German-Texan fare since 1917.
Next, check out San Antonio in style! Download the B-Cycle app and head over to the nearest San Antonio Bike Station where you can rent out a bike for the day.
Take the Museum Reach paved trail up to Pearl, but along the way, be sure to let the San Antonio Public Art Map, created by the San Antonio Department of Arts & Culture, guide you to magnificent pieces of art.
You have arrived at Pearl, and Saturdays at the Pearl are dedicated to our local farmers and ranchers. Find fresh produce and meats at the Pearl Farmer’s Market. After the market, continue to shop at the many quaint boutique shops inside Pearl, and be sure to stop in at Local Coffee and grab a brewed cup of java or a delicious pastry.
Afterward, take a ride for a bite to eat at Ladino also located at Pearl. Incredible Mediterranean cuisine is on the menu here, and regardless of what your selection is, you won't be disappointed.
Ride back to your hotel to rest and freshen up, and let one of our GO RIO River Cruise barges peacefully wind you up and down the River Walk on one of their narrated tours.
Infused with the influence of many cultures, San Antonio has been designated a UNESCO City of Gastronomy. Our last stop will be for a late-night grab for dinner and drinks at Biga on the Banks – a local favorite and foodie's paradise.
