Shanik, which has taken over a slice of South Lake Union, recently updated their happy hour menu – and it sounds delicious. Offered Monday-Friday from 4-5:30, everything on both the food and drink menu costs $5. Better yet, you can order it both in the lounge and the soon-to-open patio.
We’re excited for the spiced mogo, or cassava, fries with creamy fenugreek and garlic dip, lentil and potato pakoras, and even papri-chaat with sprouted lentils and chutneys. (Everything else has been released, but know that the papri-chaat won’t be available until next week.) And for someone wanting a smaller version of traditional Indian cuisine, they’re serving spicy, mini, Indian crepes (pura) with chutneys.
The cocktail menu and wine list have also been revamped. New wines include five Northwest wines by the glass, and twelve total wines from Washington, all chosen specifically because they pair well with Indian cuisine. New cocktails include the Sarkar with Amrut Single Malt Whisky, and the Za’Feran with saffron-infused Sun Vodka.
For the full menu and more information, check out Shanik’s website – or just wander by one of these warm August evenings.
