We had heard about The NEST so decided today to try it out for lunch. It’s in Nanaimo on Skinner Street just down the hill from Gina’s Mexican. You know, the purple house on the hill.
Having looked at the website of The NEST we were anxious to actually eat some of their great sounding food. We were not disappointed. My favourite girl ordered the Paprika Prawns which arrived in a delicious creamy sauce. She loved them. It was an appetizer but certainly enough for a light lunch.
I chose the daily special which was a Beef Curry Noodle Bowl and it was both substantial and delicious. In fact it was a bit too much for me for lunch. Of course I was saving space for a slice of their in house made Cheese Cake. It was outstanding and we shared it. The House wine is a nice Italian Pinot Grigio at $7 a glass.
The NEST is quite a cute spot on two levels with a small bar as well. We had a window tableso took advantage of the cold blue sky day. The service was very pleasant and efficient. Added bonus is a view of Lordco Auto Parts.
Check out their website before you go. It includes a good commentary on the Owners/chefs as well as the menu. Open for lunch and dinner.
Right beside The NEST is a large free parking lot too. It’s a good spot and we would certainly return.
