Though it is their year, no dogs (or pets of any kind, for that matter) are allowed on the grounds of the Institute of Texan Cultures’ celebration of the Lunar New Year. But there will be plenty of pupper figurines, clothing, art and more during the annual Asian Festival, which combines dance, martial arts demonstrations, and, best of all, food from across Asia. Grab a beer or sake at the Asian Libation Station, and pair it with bites hailing from Malaysia, India, Korea, Philippines, Pakistan, China, Vietnam and beyond. With halo-halo from Sari Sari Filipino Restaurant, bulgogi rice bowls from Takorea, masala fries from the Pakistani tent, fried rice from the Chinese Women’s Club and sweet mango lassi milkshakes from Café Bahar, there’ll be something for everyone to enjoy.
$5-$12, Sat. February 17, 10am-5pm, Institute of Texan Cultures, 801 E. César E. Chávez Blvd., (210) 458-2300, texancultures.com. So many restaurants, so little time. Find out the latest San Antonio dining news with our Flavor Friday Newsletter.
