If you are in downtown Houston, and feel like relaxing over some tapas and beer, then Batanga is the place to go. Located in close proximity to the Market Square Park, this cool and casual restaurant serves up some fantastic cocktails and bites, in a laid-back ambiance. With a huge patio of 3600 square feet (334.45 square meter), Batanga seems to attract many hungry tourists and locals. With happy hours being available on drinks, this place remains choc-a-bloc during evenings. Grilled Panela Cheese, Duck Confit Arepas, Cuban Mojo Chicken Skewers and Grilled Hangar Steak remain to be popular dishes among most of their customers. A good range of cocktails accompany the delicious food, while Thai Me Up, One Beat Samba and Patio Cooler remain to be the crowd-pleasers.
Looking for more variety in your evening meal? Go Spanish tonight! Andalucia Tapas Restaurant & Bar serves up a wide variety of mini dishes, ranging from delightfully salt-cured fish, to roasted veggies and savory meatballs. The Albondigas Marroquis are wonderfully Moroccan-influenced meatballs with eggs, peas, and a dash of cumin. The Ensalada De Espinacas is a perfect mix of avocado, fresh baby greens, chickpeas, and veggies with a lime vinaigrette. Get a delicious Margarita or glass of Sangria at happy hour. It's an ideal spot for dinner before a show at The House of Blues next door. -Adam Rosen
