At Mission Restaurant Supply we have a lot of love for our customers. Every individual in our company is dedicated to our community and to each other. That’s why we decided that we wanted to feature chefs around the country that we have had the honor of getting to know on a personal level and that we believe have truly influenced the foodservice industry in a very positive way. These individuals are pioneers in the kitchen and beyond. They are not only determined to deliver an incredible experience, but also dedicated to the well being of their guests and staff.

San Antonio is known as the capital of Mexican food. Finding someone who makes authentic Mexican food however, is a little bit more difficult because restaurant chefs tend to modify their food for more American tastes. Chef Blanca Aldaco refuses to risk losing the original flavors of Mexico in her food by adding ingredients that aren’t authentic. “I’ve always said that my food is more Mex than Tex. I make my food fresh and with true Mexican flair. There are no substitutes and you can be rest assured that my food will amaze your taste buds,” said Blanca. She has been creating delicious Mexican cuisine in San Antonio for more than twenty years now and is most well-known for introducing the famous tres leches cake and the avocado martini to South Texas.

Chef Aldaco is dedicated to perfecting every aspect of her successful venue, from front-of-house operations to back-of-house, to making unique food and specialty drinks from scratch, and to making sure that each guest leaves more satisfied than the last time. “The key is organization and attention to detail. So many restaurants lack these two key traits and that’s why they fail. We never miss a detail and our guests don’t leave upset,” she said, also stating that, “Our chefs and event planners always have a plan and timeline. We want to be accountable for everything that happens in this restaurant.”

Make just one visit to Aldaco’s and you’ll see exactly what she means. The service, food, drinks, entertainment, and views from the hill top or the train station mold together seamlessly and make for one incredible experience. Blanca has a number of guests that are dedicated to her and to her business, which has a lot to do with her generosity towards the community. She has head started several charities and hosted events in honor of complete strangers. One project that she began was the “Perfect Stranger” charity event, which raised money for a man that had been diagnosed with cancer but couldn’t afford the escalating hospital costs. In just a few short weeks, she and the local community raised more than $30,000 for the man’s family. Blanca Aldaco also recognized the need for more chairs at sporting events at her daughter’s high school. With the help of other parents, $6,000 was raised to purchase new chairs with the high school’s name on them. “I want to do anything that I can to help, even if I don’t know who it is I’m helping.”
