Top 10 Nachos in Manila
Where to get the tastiest Tex-Mex staple.
(SPOT.ph) Mexican in origin, the first plate of nachos is credited to Ignacio "Nacho" Anaya, who first served them in 1943 to wives of U.S. soldiers. It was a snack that threw together the few ingredients he had left in the kitchen: tortillas, cheddar cheese and sliced jalapenos. Eventually it became a bar chow favorite, one that would soon be known and enjoyed all over the world.
Though the popular Tex-Mex appetizer appears to be a no-brainer to put together, it’s not always easy to get right, and not all nachos are binge-worthy. What separates an ordinary bowl of tortilla chips with a side serving of salsa from a hefty, mouthwatering plate of nachos, it seems, is all about doing two things well: using crunchy tortilla chips, and bathing them in fresh, flavorful toppings so that each bite isn’t left wanting.
