Nook - Neighborhood Gem

Not only I've taken Nook for granted, but also I underestimated this hidden bistro. I always wanted to try Nook but forget it more often just because it's around my neighborhood. So I finally gave this one a visit and my impression? Nook gave pleasant surprises, consistently from start to finish.

Kurobuta pork belly with tomatillo, black-eyed peas, and shiitake - my nirvana!! Mixed of Chinese crispy pork skin with moist layered fat and Mexican green salsa sauce.

Spicy gulf shrimp with Falls Mill Stone ground grits and linguisa sausage. Blazing tapestry of cheesy grits and tangy flavor. Purrrfect!

Chocolate banana bread pudding - Warmth of melting dark chocolate and slight tartness of the banana bread pudding are phenomenal and not too sweet - I'm obsessed!!

Who would guess that this little neighborhood bistro has big flavor to offer? Lucky me, this gem is around the corner...
