What I Ate: Figs, ice cream and a visit to Mariscos El Bucanero


Today's post is a bit of a mixed bag. I went foraging, I had a bit of a cheat day, I ate lots of ceviche. As evidenced in our #SAfoodpics post, other San Antonians hit the town in search of everything tasty.

Word to the wise, if you're going to Mariscos El Bucanero on a weekend, get there early, make sure you have a teensy party, and you might get sat within five minutes of getting there (as long as you're willing to sit outside and enjoy the breezy patio). It turns into a bit of a madhouse, but in the most delicious way.

As always, follow me on Instagram for more food porn: @JessElizarraras.

Found my new favorite dish at Señor Veggie. The Samosa Plate with curried sweet potatoes, spiced lentils and basmati rice. Delish. #vscocam
