You truly are something to savor.
When I think of you I simply grin.
From your texture to your delicious flavor,
You a make me forget gluttony’s a sin.
You start with a crunchy base,
And then comes the best part.
So ooey, so gooey, so dear to my heart.
Next up is meat and beans,
And why not add a little guac?
I think it’s time to unbutton my jeans,
And maybe take a little walk.
You’re finished off with cilantro and sour cream.
Pretty enough to be in a magazine.
This is my ode to nachos. The world’s perfect food.
Nachos have everything I’m after in a dish: crunch, spice, salt, and fat, balanced with a dash of fresh. I could eat nachos daily, but, luckily for my waistline, I do not.
To celebrate this heavenly food, my mom, sister and I embarked on a quest to eat three very different nacho dishes. From traditionally tasty to strangely satisfying.
We started at Expatriate and ordered the elusive (served only from 5-6pm, after 10pm and for weekend brunch) Expatriate Nacho ($14).
Base | Fried Wonton Chips
Cheese | Thai Chili Cheese
Protein | Spicy Lemongrass Beef
Veg | Herbs
Sauce | Crema, Kaffir Lime + Tomato Salsa
These are Daddy Warbucks rich. Deep-fried wontons topped with beef and chili cheese. Woof. But in the best way. A total Tex-Mex Asian fusion flavor explosion.
