Huzzah—SoBro Pizza Co. is now offering personal pies


We’re getting another serving of Pakistani food, eaters. Kohinoor Restaurant (8513 Starcrest, (210) 637-7360), known for its 100-percent Halal kebabs, paneers and tasty samosas is adding another location at 9425 Fredericksburg. The staff at the original Kohinoor was busy working out opening kinks over the weekend at the new location, but both eateries should be operational by our press date.

Hot Joy (1014 S Alamo, (210) 368-9324) fiends should be happy to know they can eat pan-Asian fare seven days a week now. The eatery, which had been closing Tuesdays and Wednesdays to let staff regroup, will now open 11 a.m. to 3 pm. and 5 p.m. to 2 a.m. daily so you can eat at Hot Joy for lunch, dinner and a late-night snack every day of the week.

While on the topic of lunch, SoBro Pizza Co. rolled out a new menu this past weekend that includes a new “Little Bro” personal pizza option in case you don’t want to order a large pie during your lunch hour. The personal pies start at $8 for a marinara pizza with San Marzano and shaved garlic and cap at $13 for the Italian meats offering.

Need help with your salsa making? Casa Navarro (228 S Laredo) and UTSA Special Collections will host an evening filled with historic Mexican cookbooks and Tejano gardening, describing how that information is still handy in the modern kitchen. Stop in for an ingredient hunt, lectures, cookbook recipes and a salsa-making demo (and tasting, obviously). The free event will be held Friday, July 25 at 6 p.m. Call (210) 226-4801 for more info.

TEDx communities are so hot right now. For those unfamiliar, TED is a non-profit devoted to spreading ideas; TEDx is a localized branch that helps communities, organizations and individuals start conversations and connections through TED-like experiences. Having said that, TEDxSan Antonio and the Food Policy Council of SA will host a brainstorming session on Saturday, July 26 at Urban-15 (2500 S Presa) on how to improve education and food availability for residents. The $35 ticket available through eventbrite.com will include admission for the session with local speakers, and the following pop-up potluck with snacks by chefs Brooke Summers Smith, Jason Dady, Steve McHugh, Michael Sohocki and Elizabeth Johnson, plus munchies via Taste Elevated, GauchoGourmet and Bakery Lorraine, and sustainable cocktails by the Boulevardier Group.
