The Fruteria is a Hip Twist!

I have been anxiously awaiting the opening of The Fruteria. It is the latest restaurant concept by Chef Johnny Hernandez. I am a huge fan of La Gloria, his restaurant at the Pearl Brewery, so I was more than curious to see his take on a fruteria, which in case you are not familiar, is a Mexican fruit stand.The name fruteria means "green grocer." It is located in a newer part of downtown San Antonio known as the Lone Star Arts District. It is not too far from the Guenther House, King William and Southtown.

I have lived in Texas my whole life and have driven up and down I-35 a miilion times. I can usually take or leave a donut. I always felt brownies are what are worthy of the calories but not a donut. This theory was before I had tasted a simple glazed and warm Round Rock donut.When we drove up the parking lot was full and the line was long. We knew this was a very good sign. We ordered half a dozen of the famous donuts and a brownie,cupcake and chocolate chip cookie. Each donut … [Read more...]
