After a nacho hiatus of about 2 weeks, I made plans to eat some at Baby Bo Cantina’s in Murray Hill. In the meantime, I needed a Secret Santa gift. After I wondered if bosses like mugs that say smart girls thirst for knowledge, I walked by the former playa space which now houses Comida.
Obviously, I looked at the menu through the window and to my delight, they had nachos. We went in, I ordered a hot cider with apple cider, spices and mescal (think smoky tequila) and nachos with picadillo beef at the suggestion of the waiter.
When they hit the table, I was pleased at the size of the Nachos and the overall look. There was a wealth of toppings from sour cream, pico de gallo, guacamole, beef and black beans. My first bite carried the beans, beef and a jalapeno and I noticed the chips, while not likely homemade, were strong and not over salted. Each bite gave me a different taste of the nachos to the simple, yet flavorful guac to the tasty beef. There was no puddles from the beans, a problem we often see. If I had one recommendation for Comida, when it comes to the cheese, spread the wealth a little more; we ended up with a few chips with no cheese.
After we ordered, we talked to the owner, Margaritte, who mentioned they have chorizo that we would love on nachos (as if I wouldn’t fall in love with a plate of good chorizo). Their chorizo packed a heat-punch. Next time that’s what I’m getting.
