This week on Texas Eats, David Elder takes us to the top restaurants in Central Texas, including some of the best tamale shops in San Antonio.
David’s first stop is at a Texas-inspired French restaurant, Tardif’ American Brasserie. He samples the menu over cocktails with the owner, Chef Jean Tardif. They discuss Chef Tardif’s unique French and Mexican background and how the two cultures have inspired his cooking.
Next, David takes us to Castle Hills in San Antonio for some awesome tomahawk steaks and Monterrey-style Mexican cuisine at Tu Asador! He speaks with chef and co-owner Jose Gonzales about running the business with his parents and three sisters.
After that, David heads to New Braunfels to pair some Shiner beers with Wagyu beef fajitas at La Cosecha Mexican Table.
David then takes us to the small town of Hutto for some homemade pies at Texan Café & Pie Shop!
Up next, David takes us to one of San Antonio’s oldest bakeries, Bedoy’s Bakery. He learns about the bakery’s history and the traditional Pan de Muerto.
David then heads to a Rio Grande Valley favorite tamale shop that has recently opened in the Alamo City, Delia’s Tamales. He sits down with the founder, Delia, and listens to the story of the shop’s origin.
