nacho reviews in the East Village and Lower East Side. Have we missed a restaurant you love? Suggest it now!
Hotel Tortuga NYC popped up in my radar when it came through my inbox via Scoutmob. It boasts 12 different toppings and not just for nachos. The 6 meat choices and 6 vegetarian are available in taco, burrito, quesadilla forms as well. But alas, we are a nacho blog so I settled in for The Green Tortuga – On the Bus nachos.
This nacho spot came from the good ol’ suggestions list. If you have a nacho suggestion for us, we’ll make it a priority to try those nachos. We finally got to these, at Phebe’s, a huge bar & restaurant in the Soho/LES area. We went with my sister on her visit to the big city. As we walked in, the music blared and the people chattered. Off in another room, I believe a singles event was making men and women uncomfortable.
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 Paquitos in the East Village.
Holy Ghost Tent Revival were back in town this past week. Before a show at the Living Room, we got together for some happy hour nacho action at Piano’s. Before 7, the Grand Piano Nachos are only $5. We got 6 plates.
On our first ever nacho crawl, San Loco was the thrid stop on the Lower East Side. Simply put, we weren’t impressed. Ball park nachos, lettuce, bland pork, nothing seemed to go right for this place. Well let’s fast forward a couple months to this past weekend’s ‘Chos and Shows festival. Following some cans of PBR and shots of whiskey, were went in search of your typical late-night, greasy, fatty drunk food. Now we know when San Loco is an acceptable nacho place. At 3 am on a Saturday morning when you only have $4 after a night at the bar.
