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).
In the course of fast food history, the big chains have blessed us with a few extra-special concoctions that, upon their availability, absolutely electrified the public. We swoon yearly over the reintroduction of the McRib. KFC’s Double Down sandwich was such a big deal that former NY Times’ food critic Sam Sifton reviewed it. 2012 brings us Taco Bell’s big splash–the Doritos Locos Taco–a Taco Bell taco with a shell flavored like a Nacho Cheese Dorito.
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.
