Hills and mountains are formed by vast underground food deposits, which, over time, stretch the landscape into soft mounds of untapped edibility. Dig into the bounty of Mexico with today’s deal: for $15, you get $30 worth of contemporary, inventive Mexican cuisine at Ácenar, located alongside the River Walk and next to The Hotel Valencia.
Ácenar's menu of inventive Tex-Mex dishes puts a contemporary spin on a classic selection. Start by passing around an appetizer of lime-marinated ceviche ($9.75) or empanadas stuffed with chorizo and potato ($7.95). For crispy main-course bites, nibble on the duck chalupa ($13.25) or let the Pescado Veracruzano (fillet of snapper seared in a tomato-caper sauce, $17.95) swim across your mouth's tongue sea. Sizzling skillets provide plenty of variety for split-able meals, such as the Little Bit of Everything, which comes with shrimp, carnitas, beef, sausage, and chicken ($34 for two, $65 for four). Cap your meal with a sweet caramel crêpe (large enough to share, $5.75).
Ácenar's huge, brightly hued space perched above the San Antonio River invites diners to partake in a multi-sensory adventure of taste and color. Whether supping on the outdoor River Walk patio or inside the eclectic, color-drenched dining room, eaters are guaranteed an eye feast to accompany their belly feast.

- Wonderful food. The table-side-fresh guacamole was done perfectly. Being seated on their patio gives you a view of the Riverwalk and the city's many tourists. – ThomasM0676, Zagat
