Local Coffee Alamo Heights

In my hopes of getting caught up on the blog, I stumbled upon these photos from a visit to Local Coffee.  Located right down the road from us, it is the perfect quaint location to grab a coffee in the heart of uptown Alamo Heights.

Urban Taco

Hi there, remember me?  I've had this thing called a blog for the past 4 years documenting our life here in TX.  I assure you, we are alive and well, deep in the heart.  I've been super busy with work {Thanks be to God} that I've unfortunately neglected the old blog.  But I'm back and will be updating with Kingston's birthday posts and then more than likely a huge photo dump, a couple recipes and two restaurant visits.  So, we'll start backwards for now, with our date night from last night at Urban Taco.

That's right, I said date night.  With both Kyle and my schedules the boys' sports schedules and our shear exhaustion, date nights are few and far between so we REALLY enjoy em when we get em.

It was a drizzly night and quite chilly for San Antonio standards.  That didn't stop anyone from coming out that night to hear Sarah Centeno playing on the patio while sipping $1 margaritas and mojitos and chowing down on some yummy food.

We've been here before but it had been a long time.  All I remember was being rolled out of there because I was so full, things haven't changed as you'll soon see.

I'm totally getting one of these next time, I just couldn't pass up the pricetag of $1 house margaritas and mojitos, I mean...

We scarfed down the Yucca Chips even before we got our drinks!

We started with the Salsa Trio.  From left to right:  Tomatillo Serrano Verde, Poblano Pepita Pesto, Roasted Peanut Habanero.

The poblano pesto one was Kyle's favorite.

The peanut habanero was mine.

Y'all, it was so good.  If you can handle the spice that is.  But no better way to cool off that heat than with the Puerto Ceviche.  Bright, simple, clean flavors that really cleaned our palettes.

By this point, I wished that I had on an old pair of maternity pants.  Telling that to Kyle r e a l l y turned up the heat on our date night.  Note to self:  stop saying things that cross your mind out loud ;-) 

I ordered the (from l-r) Shrimp al Pastor, Roasted Corn Con Lime and the Dos Equis Barbacoa with the Blanco Beans and Cebollitas

Shrimp al Pastor was my favorite taco.

And the cebollitas, were out of this World!  Who knew?!  The taste reminded me of the way I make Tacos al Carbon at home.  Even Kyle, who despises onions (smh) loved them.

Kyle ordered, (from l-r) the Arrachera Steak, Al Pastor and Carnitas DF with the Black Beans and Poblano Green Rice.
Urban Taco San Antonio
His favorite was the Arrachera Steak one.

Yum, yum, yum.  However I will say, I am a bit biased as, Mexican cuisine is my favorite.  Gracias  Urban Taco for another delicious dinner.  We'll see you soon, next time I'll be trying the infused tequila and of course that ginger jalapeno margarita.  Hasta luego.

* I received a $20 gift card from Urban Taco but all opinions expressed are my own.

Coltrane:  One day decided after years of not wanting his hair cut, to get it cut.  (sniffle)
Kingston:  LOVES to read, he's at a 2nd grade level and the books in his classroom are too easy.  It makes Kyle and I over the moon to know how much he loves books.
