Paquitos

Way to ruin my Friday night Paquito’s. Way to go.

A week has past since we destroyed Astoria on our Nacho Crawl, so our stomachs have had time to settle and our palates have been refreshed but I wish I could just hit DELETE DELETE DELETE on the night that was at Paquito’s in the East Village. Before we even got our nachos, we had already consumed our free chips and salsa which were quite tasty. We were looking forward to the chorizo, cheese, and beans nachos.

However, we experienced a black bean bombshell. Runny beans juice makes nachos super soggy. The worst offender: the chorizo. I prefer ground chorizo; however, as evident by Tacos Mexioo from our nacho crawl, slices can surprise me. But this chorizo had the texture of a hot dog and only slightly more kick. I couldn’t get over it and as you can see we just couldn’t finish.

Is it the East Village area that attracts sad, sorry ‘chos? If memory serves me right, 7A nachos were a bit of a bummer and San Loco has a pit stop there. But then again, one of my favorites, Professor Thom’s is on the East Side. Someone please recommend a place that won’t leave me fuming or Lee in tears.

    Are you talking about the Paquito's on 1st Ave @ 9th St.? I've gotten the “Mexican Nachos” to go numerous times, and always enjoyed them. I guess they make them differently on the restaurant side.

    The same Paquito's. We ordered the Chorizo Nachos and they were awful. Maybe we just chose wrong? Does yours usually come with a puddle of black bean goo?

    another red sox bar in the east village with nachos: phebe’s on bowery @ 4th. they’re not mindblowing (there are no beans), but cheese, pico, sour cream, guac, jalepeños will do the trick, especially during happy hour, when a plate the size of a large pizza is $4. this is definitely a happy hour nachos go-to for me! http://www.phebesnyc.com/
