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.
At Nachos NY, we continue our attempt to find good nachos at chain restaurants. I had a strong desire to hit some gophers with a foam hammer so Dave and Buster’s in Times Square it shall be. See, I am so dedicated to my craft that I not only dined at a chain restaurant/arcade but I went to Times Square.
It was approaching the midnight hour and tummies were rumbling at the Robicelli’s kitchen. Tacos el Branco in Sunset Park has served me well before, even in delivery nacho category. But Nachos Texanos? Without a description? I was feeling adventurous.
At first glance and I admit first bite, I really enjoyed caliente’s nachos. They are simple. Just like Ignacio would have wanted. Chip, cheese and jalapeño. Of course we added the chorizo – sorry Ignacio! The presentation was clean and impressive.
As an official nacho snack correspondent, I’m constantly on the lookout for what treats are waiting for me on the shelves. Generally, when I visit bodegas, I do a quick scan for packaging with the word “NACHO” on the front, making sure to pay special attention to anything in orange packaging. A few weeks back, I was at my favorite Park Slope bodega looking in the freezer section for something all organic & whatnot, something I could heat up & call my dinner with the least amount of effort.
As the Yankees prepare to sweep the Minnesota Twins this weekend, I was reminded of my trip to the Twin Cities two weeks back. The CC Club is a historic bar in Minneapolis, Minnesota. While the Surly, Summit, and Bell’s was a-flowin’ I started getting the munchies and settled for a half portion of bar nachos at Twin Cities punk-rock institution.
You’d think that after what seems like 20 years of Nacho eating and 25 appointments at the Cardiologist, I’d know when to turn down a Nacho that will probably be awful when I read the menu or hear about the place.
As some of you know, I started a new job at a new company. We went as a group to Hog Pit. As I walked through the rain, I saw on their sign that they had nachos for the day at the low price of $5.95. Since I have been talking about my nacho-obsession, I had no choice but to order them.
