Under The Sea

I’ve been wanting to check out San Antonio seafood restaurant El Bucanero for ages – and last night, I managed to pry my arse off the couch and away from the Olympics to make the trip. Good news, friends – it didn’t disappoint! I’ve driven by the place on Blanco a million times, and while the building itself appears to be nothing special at all, the parking lot is always packed, no matter the time of day. That’s usually a sign of good things – as well, I know some people who loooooooove this place, and their enthusiastic recommendations were spot on. I love it when that happens, don’t you? Yaa!! 🙂

We got a table immediately, no wait – which surprised me since the place looked so busy. The decor is interesting – there are murals of sea creatures all over the place, and there’s no shortage of color. The Wee One thought it was fabulous, I thought it was tacky yet awesome – we were both right. 🙂 The menu is huge and kind of overwhelming – good thing that our super-lovely server brought us a complimentary guacamole to munch on while we decided what to order. I had a mojito – which was freaking AWESOME (high praise coming from me, a noted booze hound and mojito lovah), and finally gave up on the menu, deciding instead to order what the guy at the next table was having. 🙂 Here’s what my dinner looked like:

It was the most delicious, delightful ceviche EVER (fun fact: my auto correct wants to change ceviche to cervix)…shrimp, octopus, fish, lobster, assorted other morsels of goodness…I can’t even tell you how bloody much I enjoyed that meal! I brought half of it home – it was just crazy yummy! Yaa!! 🙂 The staff at El Bucanero were really great, and the entire experience was a huge hit. Loooooooove this place!!! Yaaaa!!! 🙂

Don’t you love it when a place exceeds your expectations? Me too!!! 🙂 ♥♥♥
