This week on Texas Eats, David Elder scares up an appetite at haunted restaurants.
David’s first stop is at a historic Texas bar & chili parlor in New Braunfels, The Phoenix Saloon. David takes a tour of the basement of the saloon, which has been around since 1871 and learns about its haunted history.
After the scares, David samples massive double cheeseburgers and hot dogs smothered in Phoenix Saloon’s famous Texas Red Chili!
Next, David heads to the East Side of San Antonio for some loaded pizzas, calzones, and wings at Tank’s Pizza. He talks with the owner, Michael Brown, about his love of food while they sip a Gorilla Drink, a Tank’s Pizza exclusive. Things get wild when David and Michael sample some “spicy buff” chicken wings that knock it out of the park!
David then heads to downtown San Antonio to the luxurious and haunted St. Anthony Hotel. We hear three haunted stories, each of which has inspired a cocktail at the hotel bar, Haunt.
David also heads to St. Anthony’s premiere seafood restaurant, Rebelle. David goes through the menu with Executive Chef Stefan Bowers. The two share some unique dishes, including a whole, char-grilled, split lobster.
Next, David takes us to the Northwest Side of San Antonio to try some Nepalese-style dumplings being offered in an unlikely location, at Momo House. The gas station and convenience store is unassuming, but there’s nothing basic about the food the owner, Nishant Hada, is serving up to go! David and Nishant sample the menu together and discuss how popular dumplings are in Nepalese culture.
David follows that up with some sweet treats on the West Side of San Antonio at Tropicana Ice Cream. He samples some loaded churros and concha ice cream sandwiches with the owner, Mary Haifa.
