“You are what you eat and ‘puffy’ is the right word.” The San Antonio family-run Ray’s and Henry’s are famous for their handmade puffy corn masa tacos, and as places to celebrate family and food together. From the historic Mi Tierra restaurant to the largest Mexican market outside of Mexico, see how San Antonio keeps it real, “puro” style.
