Thank you Lepricano. I read my newsfeed to see what my fellow urbanspooners are up to and when Lepricano reviewed la playa it really caught my eye. I hadn't found any great latin american seafood restaurants in San Antonio at all and frankly didn't know where to start. I went looking for a great Caldo de mariscos and here my friends is where I found it. The service is friendly, efficient, and helpful. The food is authentic, freshly made, and full of flavor. The menu has a large range of possibilities (i.e. future visits planned pronto). The caldo de mariscos had all my favorites pulpo (octopus), fish, fried sardine, shrimp, oyster and a delicious broth that married everything together. Then just as Lepricano did, I discovered PAPUSAS. I had mine stuffed with cheese and porkskin. combined with the spicy coleslaw they brought everything together. I definitely recommend this place
I Arrived looking for Ceviche and Fried Fish and Discovered Papusas. Clean, friendly and a Surprise. I came to this restaurant after I saw that Trans Am Razz had been positive about this place. I was looking for some fried fish and some ceviche but I saw that people were eating papusas with cabbage and bits of carrots that came from a container on their respective tables. This, and the prominent Salvadoran flags in the place told me that I wasn't at the usual seafood place. I ate the papusas with the interesting sides as well as had a Salvadoran beer. It was wonderful. A surprise of flavors. On another subsequent visit I had fish with garlic, olives and onions on top with I believe a drizzle of olive oil. Heaven. I liked that they had security outside the place for our sense of security, but none seemed necessary.
