Mixtli is so much more than just a satisfying meal, it's truly a journey of the spirit and senses. Owners Diego Galicia and Rico Torres, also chefs, have developed a unique dining experience they're calling "progressive Mexican culinaria," which is unlike anything in San Antonio, perhaps even in the U.S. The duo know how to make great food, that's a fact, but what's more enticing is they know how to entertain you. If food were live theater, Mixtli would be a hit Broadway show. Everything is made from scratch, and they source many of their ingredients locally, although some ingredients are imported from Mexico and South America, such as their cocoa beans. Mixtli, which means cloud in the Aztec language of Nahuatl, represents the ever-changing cuisine. The emphasis is on Mexican food that celebrates traditional ingredients and cuisine, just like their ranching grandmothers used to make, yet much more refined.
- Best for Mexican Because: Mixtli offers diners an exciting taste of Mexico they can't get anywhere else, perhaps in the entire world.
- Best for Alamo Heights' Best Restaurants Because: Mixtli offers a completely original dining experience of elevated Mexican cuisine served in a boxcar.
- Best for Monte Vista's Best Restaurants Because: This is a bit north of Monte Vista, but worth the extra few miles for an exceptional, once-in-a-lifetime dining experience.
