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.
As part of the book-writing process, we are going to a lot of meetings. We took a nacho-meeting with our editor, who finds us just darling, to newly opened Viktor & Spoils. Our evening started with each one of us needing directions to find the sign-less restaurant. One by one, we each found the door with the currency all over it and sat down.
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.
Ok, we noticed something recently. You guys LOVE guacamole. So do we. We’ve enlisted the help of Greta Moseson, a guac lover, to talk about guacamoles. Think of her section as a mini-Nachos NY, she’ll be doing reviews, recipes, and a lot of weird posts about Guacamole.
On Thursday nights, I intern with Robicelli’s in Sunset Park. Matt and Alison decided we take a break from the baking and order delivery from Tacos el Branco. While I have shied away from delivery nachos, I trusted that the Robicelli’s would not order from just any ol’ Mexican joint. Plus we need to beef up our nacho knowledge in the other BK regions
