Crispy and crunchy, if there’s anything that can give French fries a run for their money in the comfort food department, it would be nachos. The Mumbai Mix Team rounds up some of their favourites from around the city

Soon after nachos were invented, they began to gain popularity as a snack. But, did you know that the chip and cheese snack originated in quite an accidental style? Ignacio Anaya, who was often called ‘nacho’ for short, found himself in a predicament in the kitchen of his restaurant one day. The chef was nowhere to be found but Ignacio didn’t have the heart to turn away hungry patrons. So he pulled on the chef’s hat and mixed together the ingredients closest to him — tortilla chips, cheese and jalapeño peppers. And thus was born the Mexican — or we can safely say, international — staple, named after the creator himself! All this talk of food making you hungry? Head over to these restaurants in the city that serve up delicious preparations of the dish.


If you love your nachos crisp, head over to The Irish House, which serves crispy corn tortillas smothered in seasoned black beans, spicy jalapeños and fresh peppers. To make the appetizer even more scrumptious, it is served with sour cream, fresh tomato salsa and seasonal guacamole.

Price: Rs 395
Where: The Irish House outlets across the city


Nachos taste even better when they are topped with fresh aromatic flavours, and The Boston Butt serves its signature nachos dish with some drool-worthy and flavourful dips such as hummus, cilantro, jalapeño, roasted pepper, smoked aubergine and cheesy yellow Cheddar.

Price: Rs 346
Where: The Boston Butt, 1st Floor, Rampart Row, 30 K Dubash Marg, Near Rhythm House, Fort


If there is one place that serves nachos with loads of goodness, it has to be the Bombay Cocktail Bar located in the heart of Andheri. Layered with salsa, sour cream and cheesy sauce, these nachos are filled with the richness of olives and jalapeños, and will make you scream for seconds. 

Price: Rs 333
Where: Bombay Cocktail Bar, B-38, Veera Desai Industrial Estate Road, Andheri (w)


Calling out to all vegetarians is Old Wild West with their Texan Style Nachos. Crispy and crunchy, these nacho chips are drizzled with Monterey cheese, pico de gallo, guacamole and sour cream, and topped with their Texan twist cowboy beans. It sounds deliciously wicked! So kick back at the casual bar and stuff yourself with some crunchy and juicy Mexican delights.

When a large plate of nachos with cheese is presented to us, we just can’t control ourselves. We love how the crunchiness of the tortilla chip goes with the cheesy taste. And, it doesn’t get any better than the Nachos Overloaded from Blanco! The crisp nachos are accompanied by gooey cheese sauce, tangy salsa and sour cream.

Price: Rs 333
Where: Blanco, 201/202, Samarph Vaibhav, Lokhandwala Road, Oshiwara, Andheri (w)


Building on the classic, these nachos are topped with salsa, sour cream and Cheddar cheese. And the best part is that you can choose a meaty add-on to make your nachos even more delicious. Head chef at London Taxi, Nagraj Bhat’s Built up Nachos is the perfect choice for when you and your gang want to treat yourself to a playful meal, but cannot settle on just one option!

Price: Rs 280 onwards
