When two very different cuisines come together, magic happens. Add in an esteemed chef like Geronimo Lopez, and the sky’s the limit.
Lopez’s new hot-spot, Botika, just opened earlier this summer, bringing together Peruvian and Asian flavors in the heart of San Antonio, Texas. The menu features classic dishes hailing from Latin America with an Asian twist – such as Duck Confit & Potato Salteñas, Plantain Sushi Roll and Lomo Saltado, prepared in a wok.
We chatted with the Venezuelan-born chef on his restaurant concept, travel history and what its like to be in the heart of San Antonio. Read it all in our chef chat ahead!
