There’s something about a torrential downpour that has us dreaming about crispy chips loaded with cheese, salsa, guac and well, anything else you’d like to give us! Check out our list of nachos we’d drive miles in the rain for.

Irish House, 7 outlets

There are very few weekend nights at Irish House that one doesn’t find tables littered with orders of the immensely generous and popular Grande Nachos. Also available with chicken, you can count on a portion to fortify you (and your friends) for a night of drinking. Our favorite bit about these nachos is their value-for-money quantity and consistency.

Quick tip: If you’re looking for more finger food, order the Chicken Wings here.

Jam Jar Diner,Versova

With interiors resembling a subtle, kitschy chaos, the somewhat new menu at JamJar is as playful. Nachos are available two ways here: JJ’s Nachos, with an option to add Grilled Chicken. There’s little fuss to the dish or its preparation here, but the results include a pico de gallo that tastes just a little fresher than what we’re used to and a balanced sprinkling of cheese that allows every flavour and texture a chance to shine.

Quick tip: Get your phone out, these interiors deserve to be shot #NoFilter.

Cream Centre, 8 outlets

Minimal and low on fuss, the Nachos at Cream Centre outlet scream simplicity. Tortilla chips, cheese, and capsicum make up the components for the World’s Best Nachos, as it’s called on the menu. While this a nostalgic favorite, you can add Mexican beans or order a portion of ‘the Big Nachos’ which include bell peppers, black olives, jalapenos, and their nacho sauce and sour cream.

Quick tip: There ought to be a law against leaving without an order of onion rings.

Tamasha, Lower Parel

This bar brims with various options for a night out: whether you’re having a chill night with your friends, or looking for a spot to pre-drink or binge eat, this vibrant location is where you need to be. The Kadai nachos created here comes piping hot from the kitchen, covered with cheese that you can pull for miles. The chips are as crispy as they are delicious, perfect to scoop out those oh-so-tangy jalapenos or that never-ending stringy cheese.

Quick tip: If you’re feeling extra-adventurous, order the makhani nachos, which has a unique Punjabi masala twist.

The Benedict Bistro and Bar, Bandra Reclaimation

If you love nachos but hate the gooey mess, you’re going to be pleasantly surprised! Here at Benedict Bar and Bistro, where the interiors are sleek and classy, the food follows similar construction – a neat arrangement of black rice and corn tortillas lie beside layers of zesty sour cream, rustic guacamole, spicy refried beans and, of course, some refreshing Pico de Gallo. Due to its arrangement, you can chooscombinationsttions of toppings you want to eat with your nachos.
