Soul food sides rule the roost at Nino’s.

Shorewood’s fast-growing Oakland Avenue is home to only one soul food restaurant – Nino’s Southern Sides (4475 N. Oakland Ave., 414-964-3663), an amiable little place where the tea is sweet and the pork chops are smothered. Three things from Nino’s you shouldn’t live without? Here they are:

The three-piece fried chicken dinner ($11.99 with two sides) is juicy, crispy and napkin-worthy.

This is what you want your starch to be. The creamy, cheesy, a-smidge-al-dente mac & cheese ($2.99) is Fred to the fried chicken’s Ethel.

The seafood gumbo (shrimp, mussels, lobster, andouille) is available only on Fridays ($14.99/$38.99). It’s a belly-filler.
