What’s Your Flavor?- San Antonio

I’m continuing on with San Antonio restaurants today. I found What’s Your Flavor? on Groupon and thought it sounded interesting. It’s not new. I just checked their Facebook page and apparently they’ve been open since 2012. It was completely new to us though.

What’s Your Flavor? is in a shopping center off 410 and Summit Parkway. The inside is small but there are also a few tables outside. The inside is also very bright and colorful. There are lime green picnic tables as well as some regular round tables I believe and on each table there is some sort of toy or activity for kids.

Their lunch menu consists mainly of sandwiches and hot dogs but they also have salads and Ramen soup. Besides their lunch items they also serve snacks, ice cream, and shaved ice. We actually ended up ordering 3 kid’s meal hot dogs. The regular hot dog combos come with two hot dogs and I only wanted one so they let me get a kid’s meal. Both the regular combos and the kid’s meals come with a fruit cup and a drink.

We also ordered ice cream. The boys had Waffle Bowl Sundaes and I had a Tropical Parfait.

The sundaes include two scoops of ice cream. Connor had mango for one; I don't remember the other. He chose Oreos and rainbow sprinkles for his topping.

JT's sundae was rainbow on the bottom with chocolate on the top and rainbow sprinkles.

Overall the hot dogs here were fine, just like any other hot dogs I would say. We did just get regular hot dogs though and they do offer several different options. The star of our meal was definitely the ice cream and there are so many combinations to choose from. What I really liked about What’s Your Flavor? is that it was bright, colorful, very kid friendly and affordable as well.

Urban Bricks Pizza Co.- San Antonio

Last month it occurred to me that while I’ve written about restaurants in other cities I’ve never written about any of the ones here where we live. So, I have decided to change that and I’m starting off with Urban Bricks Pizza Company.

Urban Bricks Pizza opened up last month at The Rim. I was really excited when I heard about this place because it sounded very similar to a pizza place we ate in Kansas City that we loved. The concept is to build your own pizza. You go through the line and pick your crust, sauce, cheese, toppings, and drizzle. You can also choose one of their foundation pizzas rather than build your own. The price is also really reasonable at $7.99 a pizza for unlimited toppings.

We made our own pizzas.

The boys had a simple pepperoni pizza with tomatoes on half.

What I love about this pizza is the thin crispy crust, charred spots, and of course the great taste. The pizza also cooks up really fast so there is minimal waiting. We’ve been twice so far and will definitely be going back again.
