Kim Wah Chinese BBQ
7080 Bandera Road
San Antonio, TX
(210) 520-2200

I’ve heard this is the best authentic Chinese food in town and since Jenny and I were craving home, we thought, why not give it a try.

Preserved Egg with Pork Congee | $6.95

Oh my gosh. I’ve been craving Congee for the longest time. Every time I go home I beg my mum to make it. Of course Kim Wah can’t make it like her, but it was still delicious nonetheless. It makes me miss home so much. My mum uses a different type of pork where it pulled. This was more like little chunks of pork.

Pan Fried Noodle with Beef and Vegetables | $9.95

Again, tastes like home. But not the best I’ve ever had. That’s all I can really say about this dish.

I made another meal out of this because it was so much food.

Sadly, these prices are very expensive. But I guess anything compared to Houston won’t be as great since Houston is cheaper and tastes better.

This is the best Chinese food I’ve eaten here in San Antonio. Authentic.


Taqueria Data Point

On Friday night, Katrina and I went to

Taqueria Data Point
4063 Medical Dr.
San Antonio, TX 78229
(210) 615-3644

As you can see in that picture, they open until very late. They actually just expanded because there were so many customers coming in and their place was so dinky small.

I remember going here my freshman year but then never being able to find it until recently.

Chips & Salsa | free

Right when you sit down, the put it down on your table. Beware though. The salsa is muy caliente! (Is that the same word for spicy?) Their chips are very, very crispy and delicious.

Barbacoa To-Go [with 8 tortillas] | $9.99/lb

Pico de Gallo | $1.00

You get to chose if you want flour or corn tortillas. I went for the corn. If you’ve ever had barbacoa, and tried Data Point, you will know they have the best. It is very juicy and succulent. I had so much leftover as well.

It was so delicious, I went with Tammy and Jenny last night. They LOVE it and had a lot of leftovers as well.

Come here if you’re ever in San Antonio.

Though it looks very run down, it’s the best I’ve had in San Antonio. Their service is not very amazing because I always have to raise my hand to get a refill of anything.

Plus this time I ordered corn tortillas as usual and they ran out and only gave me three and hid flour tortillas underneath and didn’t even tell me. That = bad service. I actually forgot to give a tip as well … whoops.
