This past week I had the opportunity to sample the nachos at Shakespeare's pub on Lothian Road in Edinburgh. The nachos in question, as you can see from the photo, were topped with pulled pork.
Now, long time readers of this blog will know that I'm a vegetarian and only review meatless nachos. However, on this occasion, I was drinking - and really hungry - so I carefully picked my way through some non meat tainted chips to deliver this review.
Overall, they were some pretty average nachos. I can't comment on the pulled pork, but the cheese distribution on the chips was decent. The accompanying salsa, sour cream and guacamole were fairly non-committal.
What stood out in its badness - and this is not just a dig at Shakespeare's but at many other UK nacho attempts in general - is that YOU CANNOT USE FLAVORED TORTILLA CHIPS IN NACHOS. This is a HUGE no no. Flavored tortilla chips both ruin the essential nacho taste combination as well as make me think you're hiding something.
