As someone who has lived in Toronto for the past 6 years it is shocking that I had never been to Sneaky Dee’s. That’s not altogether true – about 2 years ago I went to a birthday on the second floor but left shortly after saying my “Happy Birthday” to the birthday girl. Sneaky Dee’s is a little seedy, a little grungy, with walls covered in graffiti and the staff wearing shirts ironically. The crowd is a mix of young and aging hipsters, everyone there to enjoy the classic rock and Mexican food.
Last Friday night I went for Birthday Nachos (this should become a thing) with my friend Jaclyn. We split the Kings Crown Nachos, which have been named the best nachos in Toronto by BlogTo.
The Kings Nachos – Crisp corn tortilla chips covered with salsa roja, piled high with frijoles, ground beef, tomatoes, onions, mixed peppers, jalapenos, melted cheese, topped with guacamole & sour cream.
1. I think nachos fall into the category of “do not photograph well” along with chili, stew and raw meat.
2. These were the best nachos I have ever had. There was more than enough topping for the amount of chips we were given. I actually wish we had been given a side basket of chips because we ran out. There was a good blend and distribution of all ingredients; no chip was lacking a certain topping or flavour. There was a good heat from the salsa but it was not overpowering. Every bite was creamy and cheesy, topped with the perfect dollop of sour cream and guacamole.
3. This dish needs to be eaten quickly. Everything quickly becomes soggy due to the amount of moisture from the salsa, sour cream, guacamole and beans.
4. I honestly could have done without the beans. I am not a huge fan of beans, and usually only enjoy them in a burrito but they have to be pinto beans, not black beans. These beans turned into a slightly mush which had an off-putting texture.
These nachos were delicious and have started me off on a nacho kick. It is my goal to try all the nachos on Sneaky Dee’s menu (apparently even the vegan nachos are delicious) and I want to try all the nachos that BlogTO deems as delicious.
Happy Friday and happy munching!
