The Tipsy Monkey: Holetown, Barbados

When I was getting ready to go to Barbados, I was preparing myself for the idea that we wouldn't find any nachos there. I was resigned to the fact that I would be eating seafood and chicken the whole time. After having a nice supper on a Sunday night, we decided to venture into Holetown to check out the Sunday night karaoke that takes place on 1st Street. We were a little early to karaoke so we decided to step into this sports bar. The air conditioning provided immediate relief to the sweltering heat! We looked at the menu, and could not believe they had nachos. Even though we were still digesting our supper, there is always room for nachos. I could not pass up the opportunity to put Barbados on the blog. The Tipsy Monkey Beef Chili Nachos - March 2024 Distribution of Toppings Distribution of toppings was great, however we could have used more chips! When the chips were gone, we were left with a lot of toppings so out came the forks. Quality This was a spicy plate of nachos and t

3 Amigos: Montréal, Québec

The 3 Amigos is a franchise restaurant that has 8 locations in the Montreal area: Latin Quarter, West Island, Old Montreal, Terrebonne, Laval, Boucherville, Brossard, and Centre-Ville. More information about 3 Amigos can be found here . We were on our way to Barbados and stopped in Montreal for a layover, and we thought there would be no nacho opportunities in Barbados so we made sure to get some before heading down south.  3 Amigos Ground Beef Nachos - March 2024 Distribution of Toppings We did have some bare chips left over afterwards but we also had loose toppings on the tray, so we just scooped those up with the chips. This means there was a decent chip-to-topping ratio but just a bit of a distribution/topping adhesion problem. Quality We had plenty of toppings along with a some pico and sour cream on top. The  toast factor  was basically a zero, but the nachos were well-cooked. I like that they had two different types of cheese blended together. The salsa & sour cream was on t

Taco Boyz: Saint John, New Brunswick

Taco Boyz has a few locations in New Brunswick, PEI, and one location in Ontario. When Taco Boyz first opened in Saint John there would always be a super long line to wait for your food with all the people looking to check out the new place (as usual with new restaurants!). When we went for lunch in January 2024, we were served almost right away and we were able to get a table to sit down and eat our nachos. I am very open to ideas for places to try in Saint John as I feel like I've had almost all the nachos here. Taco Boyz was a recommendation from a couple of friends and I could not pass up an opportunity to try a new place in Saint John and see what the hype was about.  Taco Boyz Steak Nachos - January 2024 Distribution of Toppings The distribution of toppings was not very good; there were some bare chips left over afterwards. Quality One thing that really stood out about these nachos was that the chips were very salty. They were so salty it took away from the taste. The queso w
