We’re very sorry to report on a tragedy that happened early yesterday morning at the Tortilleria Chinantla in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. Juan Baten, a 22-year old worker at the local tortilla factory, was killed when he was pulled into an industrial mixer.

It Looks Like I Found My Favorite Chips

This Sunday, I found myself in Williamsburg and hunger pangs in my tummy. I remembered all the people who always asked me how if I had nachos at La Superior.

Taco Chulo

On a muggy Saturday night, I headed to Williamsburg for a birthday party with time to kill so with Nozomi, I went to Taco Chulo on Grand Street. When we got there, she said we couldn’t eat nachos because we didn’t have cameras with us. Fortunately, I didn’t let that stop me. We took out our phones and ate nachos.

Elote's Sloppy Seconds

We try to be nice. If a restaurant blows the first time around but we notice that the brunch menu is tasty, the guacamole is fresh, or the margaritas are strong, we try to go back and make sure our nasty review was not a fluke. That can be said of Elote.

Shows and 'Chos: Yola's with Afuche

Just before their state-crossing tour, we got a chance to sit down with Brooklyn-based band, Afuche. With their show taking place at Public Assembly and us rarely excited to trek to Williamsburg, we decided on Yola’s Cafe, which I’d heard good things about.

And The Moneynotes at Union Pool

Before their set at Union Pool, And The Moneynotes discussed the pros and cons of queso, the ultimate plate of ‘chos, and when they learned about the “chips and the cheese.” In the days to come, we’ll bring you more glorious bits and ask you survey questions regarding your nacho preferences with potential for prizes and fame.

'Chos and Shows Festival

This weekend is wicked crazy for live shows in the city. In order to celebrate The Avett Brothers playing at Irving Plaza and The Hold Steady wrapping up a week of shows before heading upstate, I declare this The ‘Chos and Shows Festival. For the next four days I will be recapping the concerts I’ve been fortunate to attend and the nachos I’ve shoved in my face.

Buffalo Cantina

Stop three on the Williamsburg Nacho Crawl just happened to be Buffalo Cantina. As we have found in recent crawls, the third place tends to be when the participants border on nacho over-doses and Buffalo Cantina was no exception.

Zocalo

Upon recommendation by superfan Karl, we added this as our last stop on the nacho crawl. When I called the manager to set up the space, he was really excited about bringing us in, which was adorably cute. When we got there, we saw balloons and streamers; we still don’t know if it was for us.

Teddy's Bar and Grill

The second stop on our Williamsburg Nacho Crawl was Teddy’s at 96 Berry Street. The only straight-up bar nacho stop on our crawl, Teddy’s was a decent place. However, when you eat at 3 other restaurants in one afternoon, there’s a lot to live up to.

VeraCruz

We were immediately met by Tyler of Twisted Comix and his friends Cynthia and , who found out about NachosNY from our post on Midtown Lunch. Tyler loves him some nachos.

As the first customers of the day, we were giving the choicest of seating in their back patio. The only issue was a Northwesterly wind flying through, but it was still picturesque. While waiting for the others to join to gang, we ordered regular and chorizo nachos.
