Tuck Shop Rolls Out New Fall Menu
Fall is ushering all kinds of cozy new food at Tuck Shop, the Coronado District restaurant that's transformed the corner of 12th Street and Oak into a popular CenPho dinner destination.
Some of owner DJ Fernandes' favorite new dishes are oyster po'boy popovers, pork t-bone with squash gnocchi, and oxtail stew hot pockets. I'm personally ready to order up a dish of that Manila clam, white bean, and chorizo etouffee with basmati rice, as well as some parsnip and potato fries, served up poutine-style, with gruyere cheese and mushroom gravy.
Old favorites like the chorizo-stuffed dates and the spiced skirt steak are still part of the rotation, too.
