After a day of golf in 80 degree F heat with our host and friend Jack Parker, followed by a bit of rest, we were ready to down the proverbial horse.

Golfing with my son Carey, here in San Antonio we knew we could satisfy a food passion we both shared. Some high quality Mexican food was on both our minds.

After searching out the options and reading several rave reviews the decision was made. The El Mirasol Alta Cocina Mexicana was where we would dine.

We punched in the address in our GPS and away we went. But as occurs often with GPS addresses we found ourselves in a strip mall that had no restaurants and definitely no building that would house the size of a restaurant we perceived El Mirasol to be.

The nice lady in the laundramat directed us back to another larger strip mall a block or so back. So far so bad. This may not be the experience we were hoping for.

But find it we did and were we happy.

The various reviews extolled the virtues of their tortilla soup. The reviews were right.

We both selected the house favorite three enchilada Mexican mix…another perfect choice. Three different sauces teased and tested our palates. Accompanied by a good Mexican beer we could not have asked for more.

In the morning we were met by our Texas Golf Vacation host, Jack Parker, and we were off again to enjoy a day on the Republic Golf track…a course Parker puts his guests on as one of the options, but a course he had never played before today.

Tonight we will go back to one of our best restaurants we have every dined at anywhere. On the famous San Antonio Riverwalk, Boudro’s is the most recommended restaurant by concierges and locals alike.

So much so when I asked Parker where he and his wife like to dine most, the response was Boudro’s. So they will be our guests there tonight.

The decor of El Misosol may be simple but the service and food were both fantastic. A1 Recommend.
