So-Cal Street Food Restaurant Opens in Former Emmy’s Spaghetti Shack Space
OFF MENU IS SPONSORED BY EMPEROR NORTON’S BOOZELAND THE TENDERLOIN’S NEWEST HISTORIC DIVE. HAPPY HOUR NOON – 7PM
I spent some pretty amazing evening drinking 40s and eating meatballs at the original Emmy’s Spaghetti Shack. While it’s exciting that they moved to a new space, their original space has been empty ever since. That is until three months ago when Chicano Nuevo moved in and quietly began their soft opening.
Well the quiet period is over and Chicano Nuevo is officially busting out the Tijuana style tapas. Chef Abraham Nunez is from Chula Vista (in San Diego) and he’s brought his love of So-Cal Mexican food to the SF masses. Consdiering I grew up in San Diego I’m pretty excited to check this out.
According to the press release we got today:
Starting as a scrappy pop-up of no acclaim, Chicano Nuevo is now a full-fledged venture, with private backers, and a loyal neighborhood following. Its menu is down-to-earth classics such as queso fundido with chorizo, and Nunez’s award-winning vegetarian three-cheese tamales.
Yeah, that sounds amazing. My advice is this: get in there now before the lines become your typical SF clusterfuck. I’ll be popping by soon myself.
18 Virginia St. @ Mission
Open 5:30pm to 12:30pm Monday through Saturday
