Chicken nachos – Tacos Club

Nachos - Tacos Club
House-made corn chips covered with cheese, chicken, jalapenos, sour cream, black beans, and salsa. $11.70
Tacos Club, San Francisco CA

Mmm, these nachos were delicious! I liked that the quality of the ingredients was pretty good at Tacos Club, but you also pay a little more than other Mexican joints in the neighborhood.

Wave nachos – Wave Bar & Lounge

Wave nachos - Wave Bar & Lounge
Served with chili con carne, marinara salsa and cheese dip. 340 PHP
Wave Bar & Lounge, Boracay PHILIPPINES

Huh, deconstructed nachos – interesting, lol! This is totally not what I expected and I don’t think I’ve ever had nachos served this way at a restaurant. It was actually really difficult assemble so that you got a bit of everything. It was WAY to much work to really enjoy. The marinara salsa was different, but I really didn’t like it. The cheese dip was REALLY runny, also not the way I like it for nachos. Overall, this wasn’t a very good version of an American standard.

Hi Tops, San Francisco CA

Killer nachos - Hi Tops
(Original post picture, kinda dark so had to replace it. This version had turkey chili instead of pulled pork.)

Omg, when this came out I was in shock! It was literally an entire cookie sheet of nachos! It was pretty good and really filling especially with the turkey chili. I’m not sure I’d order this again unless I had a small group of friends to share it with. There were 3 of us that night and we could not finish! 🙂

Chips and salsa with Hass avocado guacamole – The Taco Shop at Underdogs

Chips and salsa with Hass avocado guacamole - The Taco Shop at Underdogs
Holy guacamole, that’s quite a pile of the stuff on this appetizer! I also liked that they didn’t over-smash the avocados. They were still mostly intact and ready to be dipped into, noms! $6.50

Guacamole – El Techo de Lolinda

Guacamole - El Techo de Lolinda
Cotija cheese, tortilla chips. $7
El Techo de Lolinda, San Francisco CA

This guacamole was good, but just because you add a little cheese on top of a small bowl of it doesn’t mean it’s worth seven bucks! I think most of the food items on their menu are overpriced, and all their tortilla chips were greasy. Not running back here to eat again any time soon.

Chips and salsa - El Techo de Lolinda
Chips and salsa. $3
Kinda lame that they also charge you for chips and salsa when most restaurants provide it complimentary. It’s not even listed on their menu so most people assume that it’s free.

Chicken mole super nachos – La Tortilla

Chicken mole super nachos - La Tortilla
Tortilla chips topped with shredded chicken in mole sauce, black beans, cheese, spicy salsa, guacamole and sour cream. $7.75
La Tortilla, San Francisco

I love the nachos at La Tortilla. Not because they’re particularly amazing or special, but because they’re so saucy and huge and packed with tons of flavor (and a great value). I really can’t ask for more at this price. Great job, La Tortilla!

Chilaquiles – Luna Park

Chilaquiles - Luna Park
Tortilla chips, eggs, beans, queso fresco, salsa fresca. $13.95
Luna Park, San Francisco CA

There was certainly a lot of food on this plate! I just wish it tasted a little better. The sauce was on the bland side and the eggs were on the verge of being overcooked. It’s a great value, but probably one I wouldn’t order again.

Carne asada nachos – The Little Chihuahua

Carne asada nachos - The Little Chihuahua
Hot corn tortilla chips topped with black beans, smoky chile salsa, jack cheese, guacamole, sour cream and pico de gallo. $10.95
The Little Chihuahua, San Francisco CA

This was delicious and super cheesy! The carne asada was very flavorful and I liked the smoky chile salsa than the others they have at their salsa bar. I’m also surprised how well the sour cream and guacamole withstood the car ride in the to-go container.

Yellowtail crudo – Padrecito

Yellowtail crudo - Padrecito
Mango, avocado, chipotle-agave salsita and blue corn chips. $15
Padrecito, San Francisco CA

Hmm, this isn’t what I expected when I saw “yellowtail crudo” on the menu. It’s ok becuase this actually tasted pretty good. I would have preferred if there was less mango so that you could properly taste the yellowtail though.

Chilaquiles – Solaire Restaurant + Bar

Chilaquiles - Solaire Restaurant + Bar
Salsa, tortillas, Rio Zape beans, queso fresco and fried Glaum eggs. $12
Solaire Restaurant + Bar, Santa Cruz CA

This dish was lame. The sauce covering the tortilla chips was cold and the tortillas were way too soggy. The Rio Zape beans were bland and boring, and the eggs were overcooked and dry.

Coffee - Solaire Restaurant + Bar
Freshly brewed coffee. $3

Velvet nachos – Velvet Cantina

Velvet nachos - Velvet Cantina
With chorizo, house made tortilla chips, chile con queso, black beans, sour cream, and guacamole. $12.78
Velvet Cantina, San Francisco CA

Omg, this was SO frickin’ wrong in the best way possible! You knew this plate was bad for you once it arrived, but it tasted so good that you couldn’t stop from eating the entire thing, lol. The chile con queso was warm and melted and just coated the tortilla chips perfectly. The chorizo was an added dose of unhealthy, but it too tasted heavenly to omit. I think my heart is constricting again just decribing this plate, lol!
