San Antonio Notes: Downtown, Along The Riverwalk

I’d like to eat at an original mom-and-pop restaurant while we’re here in this new city. Not only will it give us a taste of the local cuisine, but it’s almost guaranteed to be cheaper. It feels like there’s no point in eating at a chain restaurant that I can eat at anywhere else in the world. But it doesn’t look like this’ll happen. I remember reading somewhere that most of those types of restaurants aren’t very kid-friendly. They’re concentrating on good-quality, adult portioned food. Kids’ meals consist of stuff like macaroni and cheese and little pepperoni pizzas. And we’ve still got two kids in this family.

Maybe I can convince us to split into groups tomorrow night. I’ll take my parents to that grill I had my eye on. Or to that place with the live Jazz; Dad was really eyeing that place.

[We ate at the Rainforest Cafe; a chain, but still quality food and meals for all age groups. We didn’t end up eating anywhere else during that trip. Every time I commented about being hungry, everyone looked at me like I was crazy; I ended up eating a sandwich from the cooler or a sandwich from someone’s leftover lunch. And one night, we had ice cream for dinner. After I’d eaten a sandwich.]


About The Original Kate

Along with artistic tendencies, Kate enjoys unusual people and is constantly striving for some sort of nonconformity. Kate offers a perspective that is thoughtful but well-written and full of images within the words. Other tidbits that might intrigue: she has very long auburn hair, and, you guessed it, her favorite color is orange.
