Get ready for a dining experience, in the great outdoors. Kinda, we're checking out a new camping themed restaurant, near south town in san antonio. Man oh man. Good, plus, we're going inside a mexican, restaurant, reimagining. Traditional, mexican, cuisine. And, we're going to the east side of san antonio, to check out a pizza spot making some of the best pie in the alamo. City. Our first destination, on today's show is a fried chicken joint located, in central san antonio near northstar, mall. Let's see what's clucking on the menu and gold feather birds and. Beers. Goldfeather, is serving up fried chicken dishes that are southern favorites, with the south texas twist, i've been here like two or three times already, everything i've tried it's just been excellent, the most popular, item on their menu, their churro, chicken and waffles. Waffle batter gets poured into a screaming hot waffle, iron and gets cooking. Then, three chicken tenders brined overnight for maximum, flavor and texture, get battered in a seasoned flour, dredge and buttermilk, mixture, and tossed into the fryer to finish. When the waffles are ready, they get tossed with a cinnamon, and sugar spice blend, and the whole plate gets covered in powdered sugar get some of your syrup this is where it's at. That's awesome. It's chicken and waffles, man it's so good. The chicken has a really nice flavor to it, and you can tell from that brining process, the flavor goes all throughout. And then on the inside as well from that buttermilk, nice and creamy it stays moist. Outside has a nice crunch to it. And then you tackle it there, with some of the waffle. Who would have thought, trudeaus and fried chicken, they go together hand in hand. This is a killer. Dish. Like the location. Service, is good. Also on the menu, a nashville.
Hot Style, chicken sandwich made with texas, toast. Butter gets splashed, onto a griddle, and the texas toast gets toasted. A breaded, and fried red bird farms chicken breast gets dipped in a house-made, nashville, hot sauce and placed on a bed of garlic aioli, and topped with creamy, coleslaw, and house made pickles. This sandwich is also served up with french fries get this, drenched, in duck fat, and covered in parmesan. And parsley. That was probably, our, third choice of bread. Before we went to the texas so i was like let's just be different i mean, we're stuck on a brioche, one week before we opened we're like you know what. Texas toast looks fun it's exciting so let's try that out. That's a good. Sandwich. The crunch. On the bread. That is fantastic, they're toasting this thing really nice, tons of butter. You got three bees of southern cooking butter biscuits and bacon they're using a lot of butter on this thing. All that slaw in there is a nice contrast. To a lot of that little bit of spicy oily elements in there, but the pickles have a nice acidity, to them that's cutting through some of those fatty flavors as well, it's a really well balanced bite. But let me tell you, you're not going to find anything like this at any of your average, chicken places right this is a very special sandwich. It's really all the elements you want it's fatty. It's a little bit sweet, it's a little spicy. And it's gonna fill you up that's a big sandwich. That's. Delicious. This new chicken concept, is operated by general manager miguel mayweather. A food and beverage professional, looking to bring a fun, dog friendly chicken joint to the alamo, city i've always wanted something like this. Where we have craft beer, good food. And then also sports like that and beer to go, and then family friendly you know that's that's huge for us miguel grew up in el paso and moved to san antonio, seven years ago he fell in love with the city and knew this is where he wanted to create a future, i like el paso will always be home i love el paso, but it's, super green here and that for me is, so amazing. Gold feather is also serving up chicken wings tossed in sauces, and dry rubs, there are a ton of other options on the menu including, salads. More chicken sandwiches. And of course craft beer, you guys got to come check out gold feather it's the new chicken restaurant that's out here in san antonio, it's at park north right by target, come check them out i mean you can get the chicken and waffles you can get the chicken sandwiches, they have duck tacos, you got salads, it's a little bit for everyone, but overall, i mean the food's rocking, this is a one of my favorite chicken wing joints that's popping up here in 2020, for san antonio. Great options. And i love the trudeau chicken and waffles, this is just. A great idea, the nashville, hot though you can't go wrong, i'm torn i don't. Know. Now we're cruising up to fredericksburg, to go inside of a bakery with decades of history. Let's see what's in the oven at pritzer's sweet. Shop. This family-owned, country bakery, recently, opened their doors after taking some time away from serving sweets. Can i get the, two of the chocolate, chips, yes. My parents, bought this building, in, 1977. I was two years old. And, we lived upstairs. And, they bought the building for the real estate but it had a bakery, in it. And so they ended up running, it for. Almost 40 years. They retired. Five years ago. And it was bad timing for me i wasn't ready to take it over. And about a year ago, i said let's do this again, and i wanted to do it way smaller. And. Change, a few things up, and, that's what this is what i came up with now, this popular main street sweet shop is providing old family recipes, to hungry locals and tourists, looking to get a bite of history, at the holidays. I bring in some of the really old recipes. That are german, like a springerly. Cookie. There's a wide variety of sweets available, one of the most popular treats, is their peanut butter oatmeal, cookie sandwich, get this, dipped, in chocolate. It has peanut butter buttercream, on the inside. And it's dipped. In chocolate. It doesn't get any better than that that's what you want you want the crazy. Candy. Cookie combination. Stuff right you want the super sweet i'm gonna give it a bite. If you love peanut butter. Stop what you're doing and come and get this. The peanut butter flavor, is very subtle, actually it's not like in your face. Which allows you to appreciate, the buttercream. The texture of the cookie, and all the chocolate that's on the outside. So everything almost sings in harmony together when you take that bite.
Then When you finish. It's finishing with peanut butter, so it's like this full symphony of flavors that you're getting all in one bite. And then peanut butter bam hits you at the end like remember it's a peanut butter cookie. The texture on the cookie. Is perfect look it's just chewy. That's amazing. Another popular baked good, their sweet, german, pretzel. Which pretzel, is just the shape it's not, um a, bready, item. It's super, flaky. If you've been to a german. Bakery, then you've probably seen something like this right these are the sweet pretzels. I've never seen one this big though, this is a big one and on the inside a little bit of brown sugar, almonds, pecans. And you also have the icing that's all on the outside as well, i mean look at that, it's a similar icing it's the puff pastry, as well. But it's in a fun shape and i believe, just because you have more surface area kind of wrapping around you're also going to have a different texture, right, and look at that i mean on the back side you can see, how caramelized, all that sugar the brown sugar that was on the inside just comes out. Gives it a nice color, one of my favorite cakes in the whole world is a german, chocolate, cake, and this bakery is using their old recipe for german chocolate cakes, but putting them into a cupcake, form for easy eating you guys got to come out to pritzer sweet shop it's right here off maine when you come to fredericksburg. Delicious. I mean absolutely, delicious there's something here for everyone, whether you want the extremely, sweet, you want the subtly, sweet, you want something a little peanut butter in it, they got you covered, and i gotta say the cookie, this peanut butter sandwich. That's where it's at this is good stuff. Man. Now, we're traveling to the south side of san antonio to go check out a food truck that's making some wild, creations. El remedio, san antonio, food truck known for their birya casey tacos, beauty of ramen and ceviche. Now has a new item on the menu, the media, grilled. Cheese. This sandwich is made with thick slices, of texas, toast that get buttered, and toasted on a flat top. A mound of their popular stewed medium meat gets covered in a massive handful, of shredded mozzarella, cheese. The meat and cheese get mixed together and form the inside, of the grilled, cheese sandwich. After the bread is toasted on both sides, the media and mozzarella, cheese get added to the. Middle. The sandwich comes with a cup of consomme, on the side to dip in similar to the presentation, of the casey tacos. But this sandwich, is massive. So what you do when you get your grilled cheese beating a sandwich, you're going to get your close-up, on the side, it's going to come in a cup for you, check this out. Dunk it just right in there. And take a. Bite. This is quite possibly the best grilled cheese sandwich, in san antonio. The sauce.

But now owner john winkler is cranking out some tasty pizzas for everyone, at this brand new brick and mortar. I like playing with fire, when i decided to do a food truck the wood-fired, oven was the most attractive. It took me a long time. To. To get this place started i've been working on it for, two years. And got pretty close, before, the world shut down. And this pizza joint isn't just slinging out pizzas, they also got killer sandwiches, on the menu, this is the crockett. Sandwich it has, mozzarella. Cheese italian, sausage. Roasted, red bell peppers and caramelized, onions. Now this bread everything right here the bread on the outside it's all made in-house. I'm gonna give it a bite. Looks incredible. And it's like a little panini, almost it's like all kind of smashed, together. All on the outside. It's already baked to perfection, right the bread but then when it gets put back into the oven, it gets like a second, life, so it gets a little bit crunchier, a little bit thicker on the outside, but then all the cheese, becomes, gooey on there, the italian, sausage, has a nice, like fennel flavor to it like some little, seasonings, that are in there as well. Everything, shines, through. Really nicely. But then the red bell pepper in there with the caramelized, onions. That's where it's at you just give me a bowl of that, i'll eat it all day, john started making pizzas, years ago after he received, a strange, gift from a friend so this came from italy. 45-50. Years ago. To pennsylvania. Then to austin. Individually. To me i've been feeding it since, 2013.. Feed it flour and water, and that's, all the yeast we use for our bread dough, so this was this was in somebody's, italian, kitchen for a while yeah that's what i hear. If you're looking for a great pizza, you have to try truth pizzeria. They have an outdoor seating, area and you can call ahead to pick up to go, from the sauce. To the cheese. And the dough. Everything just melts in your mouth.
It's The ultimate mouthfeel, you want on a pizza. It has that nice little crust on the outside. But then the dough is nice and tender. The pepperonis. Are so thin. That they just melt they just like eviscerate, right when, you take a bite, the mushrooms. When they go into the oven they get a really nice texture on them as well, a little bit of the juice the liquid comes out of there. It's just, this is the ultimate, pizza. And i love that they have this brick and mortar now. Because now i have a place to come to all the time when you want your fix. And the cheese it's the perfect amount on there, so you get this nice creamy, bite. And then to cut through the fat from the cheese, that sauce that's on there a little bit of acidity, from the tomatoes.
