After busting my butt for an hour working out with my trainer, there’s nothing more satisfying than completely canceling out a good cardio session with an amazing plate of nachos. If these sucked, I would be fuming about the wasted caloric intake. Seriously though, Coppelia’s nachos were the best I’ve had in a long time dare I say this entire year. Who knew a Cuban diner could dish out some of my favorite nachos for 2011?

We take our suggestion page seriously (please make suggestions), so after RZ recommended we try Coppelia’s on 14th Street between 7th and 8th Ave, we didn’t waste anytime.

The chips were homemade, fresh and a little fragile. But the toppings weren’t over the top crazy so they held up. They were on the small size, so they weren’t gut busting. These nachos had everything going for them – there was a nice hint of cilantro, jalapeño and the Chihuaha cheese was a delight. The beef short rib was perfectly cooked. Too often we get dry chicken or cheap ground beef, so the short rib added a nice touch.

For reals guys. Go try Coppelia’s. The rest of our meal was fantastic, reasonably priced and they serve breakfast all day. They even have an avocado milkshake. Score!
