There's no denying it, we're huge nacho fans here at The Urban List. With those crunchy, oven-baked, PLAIN corn chips (don't you dare make your nachos with Doritos), delicious beans or mince piled on top, guacamole, sour cream and a hell of a lot of cheese, how could you not be a fan of this age-old Mexican feast?
So, to pay homage to this legendary dish, and because we don't really need an excuse to do some nachos sampling, we've rounded up Brisbane's best nachos. Check it!
When it comes to nachos, Super Whatnot is where it's at! If you haven't tried their Nachos Locos, you're missing out (and probably shouldn't call yourself a nachos fan). Think black beans, cheese, pico de gallo and sour cream, with the option to add 12-hour beef. Yum, yum and, er, yum!
Yard Bird Ale House
If you're tired of the usual old nachos, pay the team at Yard Bird a visit. They combine a traditional recipe with a little bit of an Americana feel, using plenty of jalapenos and cheese, with the additional option to include Texas style beef or five bean and chilli salsa. Hop to it, Brisbane!
Beach Burrito Company
Now, if you're a huge fan of the nachos concept but not so keen on the meat element, never fear. Our pals at Beach Burrito Co. have a vegetarian option on offer, consisting of freshly cooked corn chips, blended cheese, black beans, pico de gallo, spicy fajita sauce, guacamole, and sour cream. Even if you're not vegetarian, we recommend trying this vegy, delicious take on traditional nachos.
Ok, we're dead serious when we say that the nachos from La Quinta are ridiculously epic. The base consists of corn chips, Jack cheese, salsa, sour cream, and guacamole. Patrons then have the option of adding chilli con carne, shredded beef, barbecue chicken, or refried beans. This nachos are legendary in Brisbane.
One of Brisbane's favourite Mexican restaurants for a traditional feast, Pepe's is plating up some pretty awesome nachos. Available in three sizes, Pepe's nachos consist of corn chips, cheese and mild chilli, with your choice of toppings ranging from chilli con carne, to chicken, beef, beans, or even just straight cheese.
Nestled within the buzzing Boundary Street precinct, El Torito is plating up some damn good Mexican, and their nachos is no exception. Offering a 'share' option, and three nachos varieties, you'll be spoilt for choice.
