Interested in sampling the newest businesses to open in San Jose? From Mexican to momos, read on for a rundown of the newest destinations to open near you.
The Nest Asian Bistro
The Nest Asian Bistro is a downtown Asian fusion spot, offering chicken wings and sandwiches, that recently opened at 312 S. Third St. So far, it's been well-received: it's got a five-star rating out of seven reviews on Yelp.
The menu features chicken wings in batches of eight, 16 or 36, drenched in one of the restaurant's signature sauces, like habanero, lemon pepper, Cajun or Soyum — a sweet and tangy soy sauce.
The restaurant also offers banh mi sandwiches, pho noodle soup with filet mignon and Quesadilla Bulgogi with pepper jack cheese and kimchi. (You can check out the full menu here.)
Stop by 503 W. Capitol Expy in Communications Hill and you'll find Aqui Cal-mex, a new Mexican, New American and vegetarian spot.
This is the latest addition for the locally based mini chain. The restaurant currently has four other South Bay outposts, and plans are in the works to expand to Sacramento and Santa Cruz, as well, according to its website.
On the menu, look for plates, like West Coast Salmon with blood orange vinaigrette, red cabbage and daikon slaw; grilled chicken molé bowls with mashed sweet potatoes; and Firecracker Organic Tofu with chili-ranch dressing, avocado and spinach-cilantro rice. (Check out the full menu here.)
The Everest Momo
A new addition to Winchester North, The Everest Momo is a Himalayan/Nepalese and dim sum food truck that's located at 425 S. Winchester Blvd.
The Everest Momo operation has been expanding its Bay Area footprint in recent days. Earlier this year, the business opened its first brick-and-mortar restaurant in Oakland. Now, the eatery has opened its first San Jose mobile outpost at the 76 gas station across from Santana Row.
The food truck specializes in chicken or veggie momos, a dumpling similar to the Chinese baozi. Veggie fried rice and chow mein noodle dishes are also on offer. (You can check out the full menu here.)
