Shrimp Nachos? Whoa.....

I was perusing the internets today and was pointed to a recipe for shrimp nachos. The picture looks really freaking good. And I can attest to the skills of the cook, who also has mean recipe for Asian BBQ sauce.

My only potential consternation is the mixing of the cheese and shellfish. It's not usually done but I'm not really sure why. Maybe it's because I'm like Garth and fear change. But I do know that I love cheese and I love shrimp so maybe this change will be delicious. Plus the fried wantons sound amazing. Back Home in Lahaina in Manhattan Beach has Hawaiian nachos that substitute friend wantons for tortilla chips. They are unbelievably light and crispy and hold a surprising amount of toppings.

More International Day of the Nacho

I'm too lazy to write about what I did yesterday for the International Day of the Nacho but my good friend All Kinds of Yum saved my ass.

Suffice it to say that Loteria Grill in Hollywood is good. Reeeeeeeaaaaaaal good.

Happy International Day of the Nacho!

Just wanted to wish everybody a happy International Day of the Nacho!

I'm working on getting it declared a national holiday but until then the best way to celebrate is to eat, drink, and be merry.

In doing so, however, please remember Carmen Rocha who recently passed away. Raise your cheese covered chip, margarita glass, or salt dusted Tecate and give a toast to a great lady.

Tour De Ballona October 25

I was reading StreetsBlog Los Angeles today and read that there has been some nefarious activity on the Ballona Creek Bike Trail. In order to raise awareness and make the trail safer, Damien Newton and other involved people organized a Tour De Ballona on October 25. As usual, I was bored at work today. And that means a google map. The google estimate of distance is 3.82 miles. Friends, this is super duper easy. It will take less than an hour even for the neophytes out there. I encourage you to go (and if you're feeling spunky make a side trip to Venice - riding through the Marina is really cool).
