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.
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.
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.
Recently, I picked up this adorable two-seater bench in Greenpoint, my third visit to the area since not visiting for 18 months or so. With the bench in my car, I found Vamos Al Tequila on Franklin St. With outdoor seating, I figured why not bask in the sun and eat nachos all by myself as passers by pass me by.
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.
After a certain amount of people asked me if we have reviewed places like Chili’s (we can’t, none in NYC) and the Cheesecake Factory, we decided it was time to take advantage of the great chain restaurants that America has to offer. So welcome to Chainz.
