3 San Antonio food favorites featured in episode of Netflix’s ‘Taco Chronicles’ series
Teka Molino, Ray’s Drive Inn, ‘Henry’ the Puffy Taco part of Netflix culinary series. The fourth episode of the second season focuses on the American taco. Producers traveled to Orange County, Calif., Los Angeles and San Antonio to examine the history and influence of hard shell and puffy tacos in the United States. The series visited Ray’s Drive Inn and Teka Molino to find the origins of the puffy taco in San Antonio. The puffy taco has been a San Antonio staple for decades. Ernestine and Arthur Chapa opened Teka Molino in 1937. It currently has two locations in San Antonio. Teka Molino owner Ben Stratton said in the episode they have kept the Chapa’s puffy taco recipe on the menu for decades and it has always been a customer favorite. The episode also has an inside look at how the restaurant makes its tortillas from scratch and cooks the meat and potatoes inside the taco.
South Texas Blood & Tissue Center is struggling
The South Texas Blood & Tissue Center is struggling to bring in donors as it tries to pull itself out of a blood shortage. The center had 1.78 days' worth of blood, as of Monday morning, compared to its goal of a three-day supply. STBTC has been trying since Friday to get 500 donors per day in order to catch up on its shortage, which the center said is mostly due to a shortage of donors, though a higher need for blood has played a role. Because of COVID-19, large blood drives at high schools and other community settings have not been possible.
