LA GLORIA: Meaning the heavens. Our wish is that you experience heaven on earth through dining with us. Remember, “No hace falta morir para llegar a la Gloria.” (“You don’t have to die to go to heaven.”)
Chef Johnny Hernandez is changing the way diners taste, experience, and think about Mexican food. Innovative, deeply rooted in culinary traditions, and inspired by his extensive travels throughout Mexico, Chef Hernandez is bringing authentic Mexican street food to San Antonio with his latest endeavor, La Gloria Ice House.
Opening May 2010, La Gloria Ice House is situated on the grounds of the historic Pearl Brewery. The menu is filled with the heavenly flavors ordinarily found only among the street vendors, taquerias, and kitchens of interior Mexico. Devotion to authenticity goes beyond the menu and is reflected in every facet of La Gloria, from the stunning copper grill hand-crafted by Mexican artisans, to the unique angeles sopladores y voladores – flying and blowing angels that welcome diners and blow away evil spirits.
