There are 2 Korean markets in the Rittiman area, a Chinese market in Leon Valley, another Korean market on Pat Booker across from the Driver's License Office on Pat Booker up in Universal City.


There's a British tea shops that sells a small selection of British goods in Bracken Village, but it's overpriced

I have it on the QT that San Antonio is on the short list for opening an international food court similar to Harrod's famous food halls in London. The developers were looking for cities with an international flavor yet not so cosmopolitan that the "city" would overshadow the project. If you're not familiar with Harrod's food courts, don't be deceived by the fact that it's in London. It's about as "international" as it can get. It will have it's share of "English" fare such as their famous meat and sheperds pies as well as crazy sounding but delicious "spotted dick". But the gourmands of SA will most likely pull up a chair and not leave until they are in a taste testers coma.

The halls are set up "market style" with lots of customer service for each department....not in the usual grocery shopping isle conventional fashion. The emphasis is on fresh baked and new recipes constantly mixed in with the daily favorites.

Hardly any nationality or ethnicity is missed in the original food courts of Harrods. It's doubtful that SA will have the expanse of foodie coverage, but I understand the limitation is only going to be in quantity not quality.

If you can imagine old fashioned but state of the art fish mongers, or pastry chefs, or meat counters with every kind of delicacy....and add wines, cheeses, confectioners and fresh veggies and fruits from all over the world, that's what Harrods food courts are like....all under one enclosed roof.

This is supposed to be tied into the River North area and will not directly compete with the Pearl Market.....but most likely compliment each other. This is another reason SA has been included in the short list. Keep your fingers crossed that it happens. It would be a win win for not only local residents, but cater also to the city's tourist industry much in the same manner Harrods does in London.

I hope you're right wCat, that'll be something I can actually look forward to. Where I'm from (Ann Arbor) has pretty much everything you can think of and I got used to that. Everywhere else I've been doesn't have that.

speaking of international food.. anyone heard of Devils on Horseback? WETV.com - The Tasty Dish - Devils on Horseback (Bacon wrapped prunes with cheese)

I saw them on Food Network (With My Hands : The Best Thing I Ever Ate : Food Network) tonight and they sound interesting enough to be good.
