Had the opportunity to stop by Hamilton's Bar in Edinburgh for a quick repast of their version of the Texas classic, nachos.
There were a couple of issues which threw this particular nacho tasting off, first of all, I was going to be dining later on in the evening, so I didn't want to have too many. Secondly, the nachos had chicken on them, which is a problem, since as you might know from my other nacho reviews, I'm a vegetarian.
However, in the interest of gastronomic adventures, I boldly pressed onwards.
The nachos themselves represented a healthy portion, with plenty of fixings, including homemade guacamole and salsa on top. The cheese adequately covered the chips to beyond the required minimum and my dining companions reported that the chicken topping was adequate. One added bonus was that the jalepenos were extra spicy and hot. I ate a couple raw and had to quickly quench the fire on my tongue with some of the local craft ale.
Overall, the nachos were solid and tasty, but nothing extraordinary. It's hard to put a finger exactly on what kept this plate of TexMex goodness from standing out, but even my dining companions seemed to agree. However, if you're in Stockbridge, Edinburgh and in need of a quick fix of nachos, you could do a lot worse than Hamilton's.
