The Cove

Last night, the Engineer and I had dinner at The Cove, a relatively well-known place in San Antonio. It’s a restaurant and bar, but also has a laundromat, carwash and playground and it doubles as an art gallery and venue for live music. The food they serve is sustainable, organic and local; they have Vegan Thursdays as well as gluten-free options daily. Just with that, I’m impressed.

The Cove is known for its fish tacos, but we opted for the burgers. The Engineer had the lamb burger (Guy Fieri, from The Food Network, said it’s the best he’s ever had); he really liked it, but it was too spicy for me. I had a bison burger with sweet potato fries. I was a little disappointed by how thin the patty was, but it was a good burger. The regular fries were better than the sweet potato ones, which I found a bit gummy. I also had some homemade ginger ale, but it was a little too strong and not quite sweet enough for my taste. The salads looked wonderful, though, so that’s what I’ll try next time.

This restaurant hasn’t quite wowed me with its food yet, but I do like their principles. It’s a nice quirky place to visit in San Antonio.
