Chowdown Report: Lunch at Nido in Oakland

Melanie Wong | Jul 16, 2014 10:16 PM

Today six chowhounds gathered for a delicious paseo through Nido’s lunch time menu.!lunch/c23c8

Nido does not accept reservations. However, its website says that one can call 15 minutes before arrival to be added to the waiting list. Luckily I did so to secure a table for our group, as the place filled up quickly at noon and another large party was turned away.

Let me iterate the dishes, and I’ll ask my dining companions to share their impressions and favorites.

Aguas frescas
Ceviche de pescado
Gazpacho Moreliano x 2
Tacos de puerco adobado
Tacos de barbacoa de res
Quesadillas coloraditas de vegetales a la parrilla
Ollita de pobre con muslito de pollo asado
Tostados de pollo en tinga

Unfortunately, no cemita available today.

With tip and gratuity, our tab came to $21.06 per person.

And in keeping with one of our chowdown traditions, Felice treated us to an extra dessert: fresh mochi filled with black sesame and peanuts from Chinatown.
