Bolivian bites at Booty's Street Food



  Chef Greg Fonseca of Booty's Street Food (800 Louisa St., 504-266-2887;, the Bywater's home of fresh fruit daiquiris and international bites, has returned from a nine-day stint at the much lauded Restaurant Gustu in Bolivia, and he's brought some inspiration back with him. The globe-trotting restaurant's new fall menu has a few intriguing additions, most notably "anticuchos," a traditional dish of grilled beef heart that Fonseca pairs with potatoes, peanut-aji amarillo salsa and Uyuni salt. Another new arrival from La Paz is queso humacha, a dish featuring choclo (Peruvian corn), potatoes, olives, queso duro and llajua, a spicy chili sauce. The new items join the restaurant's collection of staple and snack items from India, Spain, South Korea, Greece, Brazil and other countries. Both dishes are $7 and are on the restaurant's dinner menu, available starting at 3 p.m. weekdays and 3:30 p.m. weekends.
