It was a lovely late May day when Steffie, mum and myself headed to LACMA to partake on a sojourn to LACMA where we had 1:00pm reservation to view the Tim Burton exhibit. Before that – lunch! After much deliberation, mom and Steffie went with the Nacho Truck.
Steffie’s Order – California Love: Marinated chicken, Chipotle corn, Cotija cheese, Black beans, Pico de gallo, Salsa verde, Citrus sour cream & Jalapeños. Added: Guacamole.
Mom’s Order – Veggified: Spicy Soyrizo, Black beans, Chipotle corn, Pico de Gallo, Tillamook Cheddar, Salsa verde & Citrus sour cream
They were both very pleased with their orders, though mom was definitely sweating out the spicy soyrizo. Steffie liked the lightness of the chicken, but found the portion satisfactorily filling. We all enjoyed their use of flour tortilla chips, though I think I was the only one who was very enthusiastic about the additional flour tortilla (in non-chip form) at the bottom of the plate. Perfect for scooping up any leftovers and rolling them into an impromptu burrito!
My quibbles are that there is no non-soy based no-meat option for people like me who just like bean, cheese, pico de gallo & guacamole nachos and that guacamole is $1.50 extra. I feel that guacamole should be a staple rather than a luxury item when it comes to nachos. Charging extra for it is certainly not news and it might be an avocado-farmer-prices-in-season situation that I am simply not educated on.
As for myself, for whatever reason, I got a hankering for a hot dog.
Additional menu items include Angus sliders (called Iggy’s), specialty curly fries, a veggie dog, a chicken apple dog and wieners that feature standard hot dog flair such as bacon and/or sauerkraut.
Next time I have a free Friday to attend the Friday Food Fair and Artisanal Marketplace in Pasadena and GWT will be there, I’ll be getting me some of them Iggy’s and curly fries!
