San Antonio Again

I had to go to San Antonio for a conference two weeks ago and J (and Buddy) tagged along.

Because we had done the River Walk thing last year, we chose to go to Sea World this time:




Sea World was also having a food & wine festivals (Passport to the Seven Seas).  It cost $39.99 for the 10 sampler package.  I asked if it could be split and was told yes, so J and I bought one.  First up was crepes from France (the cashier made a mistake here and only counted 1 crepe, not 2).  J had a Ham, Spinach & Cheese crepe and I had the Hazelnut S'Mores one (which was not the same as one in France where they only use Nutella)


Next we went to Spain and had the Charcuterie con Queso y Aceitunas (basically meet and cheese with olives)


Japan & Korea were next.  J had Sesame Encrusted Tuna (he said it was nothing like "real" tuna from Japan) and I had Korean Beef Short Ribs:



Then came Mexico were we tried Mole Chicken Fries and Street Tacos:



Next up was an empanada from Argentina (this was spicy beef):


Jamaican Street Patties (curried chicken in a crust)


Gyros from Greece (this was probably the best one of all the small appetizer size plates we tried)


And finally Italy: a chocolate cannoli (if you visited all "countries" you got a free desert at the location of your choice) and a meatball



We also went to Lulu's Bakery, which was on Man vs Food.  I tried the Chicken Fried steak that was shown in the show (I wouldn't recommend it) and J had a burger.  We got the 3 lb cinnamon role to take back to the room.  I had one small bite of it and J ate it for the rest of the week for breakfast.  He liked it.






We also went to Tycoon Flats (which was on another food channel show).  This was a burger joint so that's what we had.  I had a mushroom/swiss one and J had one that was stuffed with cheese, onions and something else.  We split an order of jalapeno cheese fries but we had expected fresh jalapenos so they were disappointing:




We didn't have a lot of free time this year because it started on Monday so we left the Saturday before.  We left a little later so when we arrived in San Antonio we just had dinner and then hung out in the room.  Sunday we spent at Sea World and the rest of the week J roamed around while I was in meetings and picked me up and we went to dinner.  I didn't get pictures of the other places.  That was basically our trip this time.
