A long time ago, on the night that the Nets took on the Celtics at Barclay’s Center, I finally took care of two major needs, nachos from Calexico and nachos at Barclay’s Center. In the process of the night, I sadly also got to see the Nets lose. But back to the nachos.
These nachos were a huge surprise, which won’t surprise you when you see the iPhone photos of them. I spent my day buying fluffy pillows at IKEA and wanted a burger, so we stopped at two8two Burger in Cobble Hill. When I came back from the restroom, Nozomi said “You’re going to be excited.” I was, strictly because there was nachos on this menu.
I’ve been waiting to eat the beefy nacho burrito for way too long it seems. Just as it was announced an supposed to begin, I was poised to eat it on day 1 and much to my despair, it wasn’t available. Today, I got my chance.
After being alerted by Jenny Miller (namedrop) about Domo Taco’s Nacho Tots, I decided I needed to try these out. We’ve been duped before by the word Nacho, so I went to try them. Shawn tried them as well. We both found them unconventional, so we decided to blog about them unconventionally, through an IM.
Taqueria nachos have a tendency to be messy take out containers that need to be finished with a fork and lots of napkins. At Villa Pancho Taqueria in Bed Stuy, the nachos remained true to taqueria standers but were surprisingly sturdy and the forks remained reserved for Lee’s hamburger burrito (complete with fries wrapped inside).
Prior to attending a bar crawl for Delta Spirit’s new album, I forced Maraysa to eat nachos in Greenpoint. We’ve been to Acapulco and to Vamos Al Tequila and both were pretty lovely, so we chose Papacito’s. Papacito’s offers a great variety of vegan and vegetarian options, but if I was that into either of those, I probably wouldn’t be blogging about nachos.
Aviator Sports and Events Center is a fun place to go ice skating on the weekends. Take the bus out there and you almost forget you’re in Brooklyn. Last time out, they were out of chips but I was in luck this time around, if you could call ordering “NACHO’S” luck.
When you think happy hour you normally think 2-for-1 drafts or a couple bucks knocked off your well drinks. On select nights Epstein’s Bar happy hour extends to their appetizer menu. On a Friday night how could one turn down cheap fried food and $3 Ommegang Witte beers?
No 7 sub is one of my favorite lunch spots near work. They take creative food combinations and slap them on a roll; I like that. So, I’ve been waiting and waiting to go to their other outpost, No 7 in Fort Greene for a brunch or dinner. Finally, I had the opportunity.
We’re stretching the concept of nachos for you aren’t we? Angry that we’ve been reviewing Irish Nachos and now Totchos? Or are you blown away at how other foods are just jealous of the awesomeness of ‘cho to the point that they try and pretend they are brothers from another mother? Yea, that’s what I thought. This week: TOTCHOS.
