With more than 100 locations around the world, this pork-centric chain chose San Antonio for its second U.S. location (the first is in Dallas). Just up from the River Walk at the Shops at Rivercenter, the Spanish restaurant and market features premium hams as well as a full menu of tapas and entrées. Order a flight of different types of jamón, sliced right before you in the dining room, then move on to other dishes true to their Iberian roots, such as the famous potato-and-egg tortilla, a seafood paella, or gazpacho topped with, of course, slivers of jamón. If you just can’t get enough, for a mere $1,400 you can take home a 22-pound jamón ibérico de bellota.
