J was working late, so we decided to go out for a quick dinner. I was craving one of my Houston faves, Ruggles Green. San Antonio doesn’t seem to have the same appreciation for organic and locally grown foods yet (I think that will come in time!) I figured we could find a nice, casual place with a good variety and a decent selection of wine. I referred to the restaurant list my co-workers gave me and Pam’s Patio sounded cute, so I doubled checked it out on Yelp. Sounded yummy and we liked the idea of a nice outdoor patio (even though it was too chilly that day to sit outside!)
As soon as we walked in, I knew we would like it. It’s a cozy little place with an older/family crowd. Our waitress was so nice and answered all of our questions. We decided to start with the roasted red pepper hummus. The hummus was just okay, but the bread it came with was divine! We also loved the stuffed olives and feta cheese chunks. By the time our waitress came back to take out entree order, we weren’t that hungry after eating the hummus plate, but we pressed on. J had the chicken enchiladas (with a sunny side egg on top) and I had the salmon. I don’t like salmon thats not done all the way through (I know, I know, you should have it a little rare…) and Pam’s got it right. The fish had a great spicy char on it. We ate as much as we could, but ended up taking home a doggie bag :)
Even though we were full, J asked for a cupcake to go. It was chocolate-y goodness all around with a delicious cream cheese icing. So delicious!! One of the owners, I think Pam’s husband, came over to see how everything was — and we enjoyed some friendly banter with some other diners on our way out. Overall a very lovely experience! We will be back and I hope that it will be warm enough to sit out on that nice patio.
Great casual dining experience – and a great staff! I can see Pam’s becoming one of our regular spots.
