Whenever Brian and I heard about Nada and decided to eat there, we were a little skeptical. We love Mexican food, but what so special about this restaurant? But now we know that EVERYTHING is special about this restaurant. And the main reason that is, is because everything is delicious!
Whenever we first arrived at Nada and the host took us to our table and we were seated in beautiful yellow flowery chairs, I just knew that I was going to like this place. (I’m a huge fan of all things yellow, in case you didn’t know!)
Soon our waiter introduced himself and brought us our water and chips and salsa. We got the Salsa trio and it was every bit as good as it looks! The first salsa we tried was the fire-roasted tomato ancho salsa. This is a more traditional salsa and was my favorite of the bunch. We both also loved the jalapeno salsa verde as well. Brian loved the habanero “kreeper” salsa. According to him, “you put it in your mouth and it tastes sweet salsa-y and then all of a sudden you feel it kick in and it is hot! It is good though. I’d love for it kreep back into my mouth!” So that’s a thumbs up from him!
We also tried the queso gringo, which was queso cheese sauce with black beans at the bottom. I tried not to overeat, but it was so good that the chips, salsa, and queso could have been our whole meal. Thankfully, we saved room for dinner.
Brian had the cheese and chicken quesadilla and chicken tortilla soup. He said it was delicious, but I couldn’t get over how pretty it was! Just look at all those toppings. Chicken tortilla soup is his favorite soup ever and he assured me that this soup from Nada was one of the best he has ever had.
I chose the chicken al carbon tacos. Whenever I make tacos at home, they are very simple. I cook some meat, add a little cheese and veggies, and we eat. But these were different. Each bite was an explosion of flavor! The flavors were so strong and I could taste every single ingredient that was included. It was truly perfection! The flavors played off of each other perfectly.
Nada also carries a wide selection of food that we didn’t get to try, such as 40 hour short ribs and sweet chili glazed nada fries. They also have a large selection of alcoholic drinks that are quite popular with the Cincinnati natives. We’ve already decided that we must go back again someday! They also have an outdoor seating area, so if the weather’s nice then you can give that a try!
