Spent the day checking out the various neighborhoods of Denver and came across the trendy yet unpretentious area of Tennyson Street. All day any day this seems like a very cool area to be in. We were trying to compare it and came up with a cross between the bay Area’s Castro and The Mission yet no attitude. The time for nachos is when you are hungry and standing right in front of a Mexican restaurant. Clearly a locals place that dates back before the gentrification came and it was busy, so this must be a good place to eat.
TIP: Great tattoo parlor, art theater, and very walkable area.
There are restaurants, taquerias, and there are cantinas. Ed’s is appropriately named so sure, it has that cozy feel, a touch of family owned and service that has just the right attention to detail. Mrs. Nacho Hunter and myself were on another road trip to Utah and Colorado when we stopped off in Estes Park for a day of hiking in the mountains. So what do you eat after that????? NACHOS! We always try to find the locals joints on these trips. It is a combination of online research and talking to locals to find the best places to dine or explore. Ed’s was the unanimous response in Estes. Please check them out and see if the Nacho Hunter tee shirt is on display. This is the first place I gave one away.
TIP: If you visit Estes in October the Elk have the annual Rut and hundreds of Elk roam the town. Absolutely amazing.
Ok, so this is a little bit after the fact but The Hunter has been busy eating :) This past May 5th was punctuated by a great lunch with my best buddy Jesse G. I was early and he tends to run late so I felt I may as well start with the Monthly flight of Tequila. Cocina has an amazing selection and very knowledgable staff so I highly recommend this place just on that fact alone. The Hunter really tested them, and consumed a solid four shots and a beer. (ok so maybe not drunk, but well buzzed for sure). So let’s talk NACHOS!
I have eaten at this establishment a few times. LuLu’s sits between a Deli / Coffee house and a Burger joint and a few small retail business just off Sand Hill Road. I was going to dad’s but wanted to eat first so I stopped in on a nice sunny weekday for a late lunch.
My perfect day is out and about in San Francisco doing Street Photography. I have been an active photographer for the better part of my life, AND loved nachos for the same period, they go hand and hand. On this day I decided to wait in line (a good 15min) to get some nachos that were on my bucket list. Even better, it was a sunny day and they did not disappoint. Señor Sisig has been on the food radar of many including Guy Fieri so if you have not given them a shot please do. Tip for tourists: They have a truck by the Cable Car turnaround on Market Street just down from Union Square every now and then.
