New San Antonio Snack Shop Celebrates Frida with Smoothie Bowls, Rusas and More


  • Jess Elizarraras

Bandera Road has a new shack joint as of Sunday, July 1 and it's bringing a little bit of Mexico along with it.

Frida's Corner, owned by husband and wife Alfredo Cruz and Paola Flores, serves up smoothies, smoothie bowls, ice cream and popsicles, and fruit-infused drinks alongside a few spicy concoctions.

Ice cream is made locally by Helados Aranda, while the couple brings recipes from their own home for acai, mango and matcha smoothie bowls. On the drink side, refreshers are served with fresh fruit, and kombucha, rusas, cold brew, water and sodas are offered.
