10 Places to Get Mouthwatering Nachos in Metro Manila

Nachos have always been known to be a starter, an appetizer, what you munch on while you’re waiting for the main course. Most of the time, we don’t seek out nachos when going out to eat.

But sometimes, food spots can serve us filling, flavorful, and exquisite nachos that essentially steal the show. If you want to try some of the highly-recommended nachos in Metro Manila, here are a few of our mouthwatering recommendations:

10. Nacho Macho MNL

Nacho Macho MNL is a small business that started selling savory nacho bake in the midst of the pandemic. Nacho Macho MNL’s nacho bake uses a secret family recipe that is simple yet delicious and uses nothing but fresh quality ingredients. They don’t use oil, either. Instead, they slow cook the beef until its own oil comes out. If you love jalapeños, you’ll be happy to hear that Nacho Macho’s nacho bake has a generous serving of jalapeños on top.

Drive-By Taco Shop is a beloved taqueria in the South, serving authentic street-style Mexican tacos. Their variety of tacos are served with tortillas made from scratch. With that same effort and authenticity, of course, they create their nachos.

Each “tower” of nachos—colorful rainbow nachos, might I add—is dripping with creamy melted cheese, flavorful ground beef, and cilantro. Many of their customers have declared these nachos as the best they’ve ever had.

Try their nachos at 256 Aguirre Avenue BF Homes Paranaque.

Tipsy Pig offers a variety of delectable bar chow that can easily steal the spotlight. It’s definitely no surprise that they offer two kinds of nachos.

La Carnita’s Nachos Ala Bomba reached international fame when the product was first launched. You may already know this as the pioneer (if not, one of the pioneers) of pouring grilled melted cheese sauce directly on top of the platter of nachos right as it is served to you. It was more than just a party trick because their seasoned cheese sauce is also extra flavorful and absolutely addicting. If you haven’t tried the Nachos Ala Bomba, take this as a sign to check it out for yourself soon.

Try the Nachos Ala Bomba at Congressional Ave., QC; Pillar Village, Las Piñas; San Mateo, Rizal; BF Aguirre, Parañaque; Fairview, QC; Better Living, Parañaque; Katipunan, QC.
