The Food Scene at Experience Niro in San Antonio #ExperienceNiro
I was invited to experience the new Kia Niro during the #ExperienceNiro National Press Introduction in San Antonio, Texas. I am sharing a rundown of the food situation whilst I was there.
I had never been to San Antonio, so when I got the invitation to join Kia Motors there for a press trip, I was all for it. At one time, Texas was my stomping ground as I spent a little time living there when I was a child. Houston, Dallas, and Austin all were places vacationed. It was now time to put San Antonio on my map.
One of the things I was looking forward most to was checking out the food scene there. I quickly learned that while San Antonio is located in cattle country, there’s a real vegan vibe around the city. There’s also an emphasis on farm-to-table offerings with a lean towards organic food.
This was right up my alley.
As a guest of Kia, I lodged at Hotel Emma, a fabulously unique brewery turned hotel that has a soap opera-esque background. The legend goes that there were three Emmas, and at the end, there was only on standing. You can read about the complete history HERE.
In this historic hotel and surrounding Pearl District is a plethora of many dynamic restaurants to fit every taste. For our three-day stay, we were treated to so many delectable delights, and I wondered why I hadn’t come to San Antonio sooner.
The food was outstanding.
My first day there consisted of a buffet style lunch, and then a reception dinner at Southerleigh, which was located inside of the hotel.

Cheese and such
..and yes there was beef
Day Two at Experience Niro was all about us getting acquainted with the new Kia Niro Hybrid Crossover. It’s a front wheel drive fuel efficient car that gets as high as 52 mpg in certain models. It’s a great option for people who want an eco-friendly ride, but with more space and options.

In terms of the food on Day Two, we noshed in a Texas style “barn”, where food trucks offered us goodies.

That evening, dinner was held during Nirofest, a makeshift indoor carnival party created specifically for Experience Niro.
Appetizers were the show
Farm to table goodness
Day three was a half day as my flight left late morning. I did manage to squeeze in breakfast at Hotel Emma. And yes, it was fresh and full of flavor.
Potatoes Old Fashioned Style
Fresh Squeezed Juice
The people who put on Experience Niro pulled out all of the stops and it was a very yummy trip. I have a feeling I will be visiting San Antonio again. The food there is worth another trip.
