Oakland Restaurant Week (Jan. 19-29) is just around the corner and there's no better time to indulge in some of the best dishes The Town has to offer—including a few Big Eat Oakland 2017 winners. From the miso pork ramen at Itani Ramen to the duck tacos at Nido, Oakland Restaurant Week is the perfect way to try these exceptional dishes at a fraction of the price.


Miso pork ramen from Itani Ramen

A rainy weekday is the perfect time to step into Uptown's cozy new noodle shop, Itani Ramen.

Add a sake flight for just $10 more and don't forget to hit up the ice cream vending machine on your way out. // 1736 Telegraph Ave (Oakland), itaniramen.com

Cheesesteak from Clove & Hoof

While Clove & Hoof might be known for its hip butcher shop vibes and gorgeous charcuterie, it's the cheesesteak that makes us weak in the knees. Order their ORW prix-fixe menu—consisting of a cheesesteak, fries, a chocolate cookie, and Rosemary Meyer lemonade—for just $20. A serious steal. // 4001 Broadway (Oakland), cloveandhoofoakland.com


Smoked Pork Nachos from The Half Orange

On a sunny afternoon you can catch us nursing a beer and nibbling on nachos at The Half Orange's gorgeous patio off Fruitvale Ave. For Restaurant Week, the Korean and Mexican-inspired spot is offering smoked pork nachos, pinquito bean chili, nutella parfait for dessert, and a refreshing drink for $20. // 3340 E 12th St. (Oakland), thehalforange.com

Duck Taquitos from Nido

The beloved duck taquitos aren't part of the prix-fixe menu at Nido, but you can still order them as a side while you devour the three-course meal ($30): winter squash empanadita or jicama salad to start, goat birria jalisciense or duck breast as an entree, and white cake for dessert. That's what we call a win-win situation. // 444 Oak St. (Oakland), nidooakland.com
