Our 14 Favorite Places to Get Crispy, Cheesy Nachos in Metro Manila

Oh, nachos: a Mexican snack we just love to munch on with all its cheesy goodness, delicious tomatoey and spicy toppings, and crunchy tortilla chips. Give us a whole bowl of that and all of it would be gone in a flash, guaranteed!

If you can relate with us, then you’re definitely a nacho fanatic. We asked our WhenInManila.com readers where in and around Metro Manila are the best places to find nacho ordinary everyday nachos…and here’s a list of everything they suggested!

Silantro Fil-Mex Cantina

Every person has a “go-to” order when dining in at Silantro, and mine is undoubtedly their Beef Nachos. The flavors of the toppings are so well-balanced, with a generous helping of beef, tomatoes, and melted cheese. It also comes with three dips: garlic sauce, guacamole, and a spicy sauce.

Try these nachos at Kapitolyo, Pasig; UP Town Center, Quezon City; Eastwood, Quezon City; and Alabang Town Center, Muntinlupa.

Tittos Latin BBQ & Brew

Tittos’ Nacho El Gigante is great enjoyed among friends or family. It’s composed of crispy corn tortilla chips topped with beef barbacoa chunks, pico de gallo, jalapeño slices, chimichurri salsa, melted cheese, and Mexican crema. Truly a party in your mouth! I particularly love how the toppings are spread out evenly in every nacho chip layer, so there’s no chance of being left with bare crisps once all the beef and cheese are gone.

Try these nachos at Kapitolyo, Pasig; and Greenhills, San Juan.

You’ve likely heard about Lagrima from friends or strangers online when it comes to Mexican food, and if you haven’t actually gone and tried it yet then this is a sign that you should! Lagrima, nestled in quiet locations in San Juan and Makati, serves only four kinds of dishes—tacos, burritos, nachos, and quesadillas—but each in various unique ways. Order their nachos either with just cheese, with beans, queso, guacamole, or flaming hot salsa. Or, just go for their Super Nachos which pretty much has everything!

Rue Bourbon

Ever heard of Sisig Nachos? Well, Rue Bourbon is the place to find it! Indulge in a bowl of slow-cooked tasty crispy pork mixed with Rue Bourbon’s special cheese sauce and Pico de Gallo all over a bed of multi-colored corn chips. Otherwise, just try their Mardi Gras Nachos which features 8-hour slow cooked Chili con Carne—it’s just as tasty!
