When you and your friends are having drinks, nachos are practically the perfect solution when you don’t want to interrupt your catch up with some complicated dinner. Just chatting along with this delicious mix of tortilla chips, guacamole, creme fraiche, salsa sauce and cheese (lots of cheese) on the side. And of course some wine, beers and cocktails to go with that. Because we believe that nachos are always a good idea, we selected 11 x the best nachos in Amsterdam!
