Recipe for the Table-side Guacamole at Boudro’s

We have been to the Riverwalk in San Antonio about half a dozen times or so but at each visit, I am still amazed at how vibrant this place is. I love the river path. I love seeing the boats pass by with smiling tourists. I love all the stores with all types of Texas themed knick knacks. I love all the restaurants, the tables and umbrellas along the river.

When we first visited San Antonio eleven years ago, we tried Boudro’s by the Riverwalk. That was our first time to experience guacamole made table-side. It was fun to watch and it made us appreciate eating our freshly made guacamole.





Here’s the exact recipe for their guacamole (it’s also in their website):

1 teaspoon chopped cilantro

Squeeze juices into bowl. Add avocado and coarsely chop. Add onions, roasted tomato, serrano and cilantro fold into avocado mixture. Add salt (more is better). Result should be crudely chopped not mashed. That’s it.
