Mi Tierra Cafe y Panaderia Restaurant Review:

About the restaurant: Established in 1941, Mi Tierra is a San Antonio landmark that's been run by the Cortez family for generations. The restaurant sports year 'round Christmas décor and a festive atmosphere.

Food & Drinks: The resolutely northern Mexican cuisine has evolved over the years to also accommodate American tastes. Enchiladas, for example, morphed into a cheese-filled and decorated dish making much of a meat gravy flavored with comino and spiced with chile powder --- now the classic Tex-Mex version. Despite the history, we tend to prefer plates with a more Mexican bent --- the pollo en mole poblano, for example, or the Monterrey special of baked cabrito (kid goat). We are also suckers for the muy macho breakfasts, especially the chilaquiles (tortilla strips scrambled with eggs and topped with salsa and cheese) and, if we're feeling puckish, the menudo, a tripe soup that is a legendary hangover cure. Indulge in homemade sopapillas, flan or tres leches cheesecake for dessert. Several variations of margaritas are available, along with bottled Mexican and domestic beers and a handful of wines. On your way out, don't fail to pick up an assortment of pan dulce from the beckoning bakery case; these Mexican pastries and candies are among the best in town.
