After being alerted by Jenny Miller (namedrop) about Domo Taco’s Nacho Tots, I decided I needed to try these out. We’ve been duped before by the word Nacho, so I went to try them. Shawn tried them as well. We both found them unconventional, so we decided to blog about them unconventionally, through an IM.
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.
Twas a rainy day in Hell’s Kitchen. Seeking refuge from the storm, the Nachos NY gang searched out a place to dry out and chow down on some chorizo ‘chos while celebrating the birth of the nacho king himself, Lee Frank.
This past Sunday, after a marathon bike ride around Manhattan – a terrifying endeavor for this novice city cyclist – I decided to park my jelly legs at Mercadito Grove with a few friends to enjoy some late afternoon drinks and guacamole. Due to its tiny size, Mercadito can rack up quite a wait on Fridays and Saturdays, but on this occasion, we were immediately seated outside and even able to move to a larger table when some new friends joined us mid-meal.
After a long work-week and an evening braving the stab-inducing madness that is shopping in SoHo, I was ready for a quiet evening with some guac and good conversation. Fellow West Coast guac enthusiast Annie and I headed to the popular Dos Caminos on Houston Street.
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.
There’s nothing more satisfying than completely canceling out a good cardio session with an amazing plate of nachos. If these sucked I would be fuming about the wasted caloric intake. Seriously though, Coppelia’s nachos were the best I’ve had in a long time dare I say this entire year.
I JUMP at the opportunity to cut into a work day with an order of nachos. It’s fairly difficult given the lack of Mexican food to my office, but on Tuesday, I triumphed over defeat when a coworker told me we were going to the Kimchi Taco Truck parked on Tuesdays at 24th & Broadway.
