'Tis the season to overindulge in all that is pumpkin. We may laugh a bit at the basicness of pumpkin spice (thanks to Starbucks’ infamous and overly Instagrammed latte), but what about all the local pumpkin goodness? We traveled around San Antonio in search of some of the best pumpkin treats and found that pumpkin in the Alamo City is anything but basic.

A good man once said one should not go to bed without dessert. We say the same about tres leches. When our search landed us in front of a most, delicious, pumpkin tres leches at Aldaco's, we ate it for lunch and before bed. The pumpkin tres leches cake is $7.99 a slice and worth every cent. I must say, this is the best tres leches I have ever eaten. It is packed with flavor in every bite and the cream cheese icing adds a very rich twist on a classic tres leches. Aldaco's has two locations in Stone Oak and the Dominion.
