Tucked away in an alley just off the main drag in San Clemente, California, resides the city’s true hidden gem: Nomads Canteen. From a variety of delicious poke bowls and loaded tacos to speciality dishes like their scallop jalapeno quesadilla and steak mundaka, Nomads’ eclectic menu is comprised of the owner’s favorite dishes from his 30-years of traveling the globe. To compliment their great food, Nomads’ has become known for their fun events such as Taco Tuesdays, Flip-It Thursdays and festive holiday parties.
That’s not all though… their food is also super healthy. In fact, they don’t even own a fryer! All dishes are prepared on an open grill and made fresh to order with the highest quality authentic ingredients available. Special care is also taken to ensure as little environmental impact as possible, making Nomads a very ‘ocean minded’ establishment.
The moment you walk in the door, you will know you are someplace special. With great music, an amazing vintage surfboard collection, 36 beers on tap, and a friendly staff that will most likely greet you with a hug, what’s not to love? Nomad’s Canteen is one of Ocean Minded‘s go-to restaurants for both business and pleasure, and it should be yours too! In fact, we love their food so much that they will be serving up delicious dishes at our 2nd Annual Holiday Board Bash.
They’re also bringing in the holidays with the most epic celebration in town: the Nomads’ Christmas Surf Bash! On Tuesday, December 17th from 8pm to close, Nomads will be serving $3 tacos, $3 Kona Brewing Longboard and Fire Rock, playing tunes from Aloha Radio and giving away a ton of awesome raffle prizes. This is an event you won’t want to miss! See you Tuesday, December 17th at Nomads Canteen, located at 102 Avenida Cabrillo in San Clemente, California.
