On what may have been the last weekend of Summer sun and fun, I found myself in the foreign land of Greenpoint with out of town friends Stu and Bianca. They wanted to ‘cho it up with the King and I obliged.
In Greenpoint, I’m told there are two ways to go. Papacito’s is the hip (possibly hipster) new place on the block and Acapulco is the loyal, legit Mexican spot. We chose Acapulco. As we sat down, the seven of us, some strangers among us wanted to hear what my opinion on the nachos would be. We ordered a plain set and a set with beef. Guac, too, please!
First things to note: handsome chips, a plethora of jalapenos, tomatoes and cilantro. Missing: Beans? Pico De Gallo?
If you’re looking for guacamole, that came on the side. So, after a few flashes and satisfaction with those pictures, we dig in and realize we’re digging quick and that’s because these are very good. The cheese was spread throughout evenly and tangy and the jalapenos were spicy. And surprise:
There’s beans. Underneath it all, a layer of yummy refried beans. The only thing I really miss: some pico de gallo. The tomatoes added nice color but I count on them for the spice. Will I eat them again? Yes. If I can get back Greenpoint someday. (ouch, G diss).
Additional info: I had a chorizo huarache and papaya shake, too. Bombastic.
