San Antonio

We were visiting Texas and went with one of my mom’s friends out to some Puerto Rican restaurant whose name the friend didn’t remember. We ended up at a mom and pop shop hidden away in a small plaza by the highway. The waiter quickly seated us and we were on our way to experimentation of Puerto Rican food.

La Marginal Criolla Combination

This restaurant is very festive, with every room filled with shiny metallic decorations hanging from the ceiling. These ranged from pinatas to christmas cutouts and streamers. To make the environment even merrier, a mariachi band (min. $5 per song) floated throughout the tables, serenating guests with christmas songs in spanish. There’s even a bakery inside where you can purchase various baked goods. We did not try anything though because we were so stuffed.
