Giant platter of ooey gooey nachos

Fully loaded. Siste'r request of me. She's not too worried about authenticity, but we both want good flacor. Any place with interesting toppings? I remember Gold spoke of "middle easter nachos" once. ANyone know what I am referring to? I forget where...

  1. So glad you added the specific nachos search to your naughty food quest. I'd been wanting to ask this after reading your NF post. Nachos rule! But I can't think of LA great ones I've had because I've been too "good". Had them at Lula's the other night to try to start indulging in them, good because it's really hard to make a bad nacho, but nothing to write home about.

    1. I've got no idea what Gold was referring to, but I saw the nachos at Loteria the other day and they seemed sufficiently ooey and gooey.

        Yes, Loteria's are good (though the cheese is occasionally undercooked). Their queso fundido is even better, if you like to take your cheese in that way.

          If queso fundido is your thing, then you definitely need to try the version at Monte Alban.

        1. Had the Buffalo Chicken Nachos at Wingnuts (a few locations in orange county, not sure about LA) last night for the first time, and they were pretty gooey and tasty. Might be what you are looking for: Tri-colored tortilla chips topped with jack and cheddar cheese, jalapenos, tomato, green onions, and chunks of battered fried chicken coated w/ a buffalo wing sauce. comes with a side of ranch for dipping.

          1. I don't think authenticity is ever much of a concern for nachos. If I remember correctly, they were invented in a Mexican border town, but to serve to white people because they figured they wouldn't know any better.

              I think you're right, and I don't want to know any better!
