Persian culinary culture is deeply rooted in its rich agricultural identity. The central tenet of the cuisine is using fresh ingredients when in season, and in their preserved format during the off-seasons.
The influences are broad and shared among many countries of the region. At Botté Chai Bar, we strive to serve you food and drinks inspired by and rooted in Persian culture and heritage.
