Kid Cashew – East Blvd.’s Newest Hot Spot

Kid Cashew – East Blvd.’s Newest Hot Spot

The entire Restaurant Traffic team had an excellent lunch last week at Kid Cashew.  Since it was warm & sunny out, we opted to sit on the patio which was busy, but not too crowded. The food options are broken down into small plates, sandwiches, salads and sides. In my opinion, the menu seemed adventurous yet simple- all of your basic food options are covered but with a fun twist. We decided to get a few things to share in addition to our own entrees.

Out of the shared plates, the hands down crowd pleaser was the mac & five-cheese gratin. It is a delicious blend of five savory cheeses and it was gone in about 2.5 seconds flat. We also tried the hummus which was yummus (sorry I had to) served with both toast points and pita.

After going debating back and forth about what to order, I finally decided on the slow-cooked pork panini. I was presently surprised at how light it was and the side of seasoned potatoes paired perfectly.

I am eagerly looking forward to my next visit to Kid Cashew and to sampling some of their signature cocktails at the adorable indoor bar.  (I have heard the Goat’s Breast Milk is the drink to try!) The combo of the inviting ambiance and upbeat vibe are sure to be a hit in the Dilworth neighborhood.

 

Congrats and cheers to Kid Cashew!

  1. I tried it and was very disappointed in the taste of the lamb. I tried the Gryo and found it lacking in flavor. Didn’t taste like lamb. My friend had the pork panini which she said was also lacking in flavor. However, another friend had the lamb burger which he was pleased with.

  2. I have to agree with Catherine. I’ve been to Kid Cashew twice now, and I just don’t get all the hype. My service was pretty crummy both times, and the food is just okay. I think people are excited by the location and patio and overlook the important stuff.

  3. That’s with new restaurants opening in Charlotte. People are glutton and just have to be there when it opens and think they are getting some really great meals as if they are in some restaurant like it’s in New York or L.A.
