La Fonda — Alamo Heights — It’s Back and It’s Great!!

22 Jul

La Fonda on UrbanspoonI know some folks who actually went into mourning back in April when they heard that La Fonda in Alamo Heights was closing.  But La Fond has risen from the ashes like a phoenix!  The new incarnation is located at 8633 Crownhill, behind the Magic Time Machine. The location has changed, the servers’ outfits have changed, but the menu is much the same and the food is TERRIFIC and familiar.

The service is nothing short of spectacular.  Our drinks arrived very quickly, along with the chips and the very good salsa.

My friend ordered the combination 1 and I ordered the combination 4. Each came with the excellent guacamole salad.

A generous serving of really fresh guacamole was presented on a tomato slice nestled on a bed of shredded lettuce. In the center is a small well of thin, flavorful hot sauce. The guacamole salad alone is worth stopping in for!

The balance of Combination 1 arrived, with a cheese enchilada, rice and beans.  The Combination 4 was completed with a cheese enchilada and a choice of taco, in this case, beef.

The picadillo on the taco was really good, but the stars of the plates were the cheese enchiladas.  The La Fonda enchilada gravy is in a class by itself — it’s that good!! The plates were accompanied by wonderful corn tortillas; there is a choice of flour tortillas, but those are nothing special. The corn tortillas shine!

And then, of course, there’s the flan.

The flan is rich and creamy and substantial, and just sweet enough. Overall, the flan is a grand end to a grand meal.

My friend and I visited La Fonda at about 5;30 on Thursday evening.  By the  time we left, the parking lot was PACKED.  And it wil probably stay that way, because the food is that good!
