Peña’s creativity shows in the food at Bistro on the Square

MEGHANN GARCIA MANAGING EDITOR.
 
The vegetable garden that flourishes outside Bistro on the Square in downtown Uvalde is one hint that Uvalde transplant Noel Peña’s fare might be a little different. The next hint is the menu, colorfully advertised on a chalkboard; last week, daily specials included a mango shrimp salad, cushaw squash and pork, and a chorizo burger topped with spinach and Swiss cheese, served with warm potato salad.

To the Highway 90 traveler, it’s just a wide spot in the road and a seemingly insignificant town, but to those who grew up there and roamed its graveled streets, it is a truly special place, filled with wonderful memories of carefree days and experiences that city dwellers will never know.
