- Botika's empanadas
Botika, SA's newest Peruvian fusion joint which opened July 5, is finally launching a happy hour today. You, too, can use this as an excuse to caress the Peruvian pom poms that adorn every bar chair in the joint, while taking advantage of discounts and snacks Monday through Saturday from 3 to 6 p.m.
Opened by Geronimo Lopez the former chef at Culinary Institute of America-San San Antonio's NAO, Botika is adding Peruvian-Asian fare to the city featuring “Chifa” and “Nikkei” cuisine, and other classics from Latin America. The restaurant is quickly gaining attention for its elaborate sushi platters and off-menu specials.
During happy hour the menu features $5 house empanadas, veggie spring rolls, tuna tartare and $4 Japanese peanuts along with selected $5 draft beer, Botika-selected wine, sake by the glass and a select spirit of the day.
