Aldaco's Mexican Cuisine Restaurant Review

: On the traditional, more Tex-Mex side, Blanca Aldaco offers fajita avatar arrachera "a la brava" with a simple enchilada de queso, as well as the San Antonio classic puffy tacos at her airy restaurant in the stylish Stone Oak area. But the menu often strays from the expected into efforts such as the poblano chile stuffed with pulled chicken and Jack cheese and drizzled with cilantro sauce, and the "Comalazo," a rib-eye served sizzling with sautéed mushrooms and strips of poblano. Yes, there is that original, the avocado margarita, but it seems almost inevitable when consumed on the breezy patio with a fish taco or crisply fried flautas filled with shrimp and cheese. Leading us all into temptation is the tres leches cake (we say forgo the chocolate or liqueur options in favor of the original), a now-ubiquitous dessert introduced into San Antonio by Aldaco and her mother. A celiac menu is available, too.
