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.
After all of the hubbub surrounding El Cantinero in the past week between the Village Voice’s Robert Sietsema saying that El Cantinero was the last bastion of hope for TexMex and Grub Street’s Daniel Laurer thinking it’s terrible, I figured you might want my opinion on the matter.
The Avett Brothers played their second show in New York City on Saturday. Most of the “Nacho Collective” was in attendance for the third night of the ‘Chos and Shows Festival. Unofficially renamed “Screw You Bonnaroo,” Julia, Jason, Chris and I basked in the raw energy of TAB and feasted upon nachos following the show, not once, but TWICE all in an evening for the ages.
After a strange tweetup, I won’t name any names (cancelled tv show), I took Julia, a new to NY nacho lover and soon to be Nacho correspondent of some kind, to Blind Pig on suggestion from a friend.
We arrived and were given a seat on lovely 14th st, so we could watch drunk kids walk by after a free pizza at the Crocodile Lounge. We ordered the nachos and no drinks, the waitress, was unimpressed, still NACHOS:
This post could have been terribly angry due to the strangely poor service. The girl at the counter gave me the wrong burrito, gave my burrito to some guy and then told me I was wrong, but lucky for you, this is a Nacho blog, not an “Am I happy at a Restaurant” blog. So, let’s move on.
It was a Wednesday and I was alive, so I thought it a good time for nachos. [Editor’s note: It always is a good time for nachos]. Being in the Union Square region on some important business, I thought I’d go to a nearby spot. Settling on Uncle Moe’s Burritos, I met up with Rachel and Sara outside.
