Behold the Macho Nacho Burger in all its glory! Pic from Robin Selden of Marcia Selden Catering.

It’s pretty standard to throw in some loaded nachos, tacos, and margaritas when you celebrate Cinco de Mayo, but we’ve got another idea for you. Woooahhh, hold up: we’re not saying to stop serving those, we’re just saying think about adding this bad boy recipe too: Macho Nacho Burgers. It’s all the things that we love about Mexican food: chili and spices, jalapeno, cheese, and cilantro! Plus, it’s super easy to make.

Thanks again to Marcia Selden Catering for this great recipe. When you make these, shoot us an e-mail or tag us on Instagram. It’s always great to see! Continue reading

You Eat, You Vote: Food Truck Throwdown Hits Stamford May 19

29 Apr

Being such big supporters of the CT Chefs Challenge from Optimus Health Care and the chefs that compete, we were excited to hear about the CT Food Truck Throwdown. Six of the best food trucks in CT have been gathered in a competition where you not only get to taste the best from each truck, but you also get a vote to crown the People’s Choice champ. It all goes down from 4-8 on 5/19 right at 805 Atlantic Street where there will be free parking. Each ticket costs $25 ($20 early bird until May 6) and that gets you a 4-6 oz. serving from each of the trucks. If you’d like an additional serving from a truck, you can always buy more. Proceeds from the night are going right to Optimus Health Care whose mission is to “Improve the overall health of our communities in Bridgeport, Stamford, and Stratford, particularly the medically underserved, by providing preventive, primary care and supplemental health care services along with health education in a culturally sensitive manner regardless of ones’ ability to pay.” Continue reading

Pig Roast, Beer Garden + Sidewalk Margarita Bar @ Bodega’s Cinco de Mayo Party 2016

26 Apr

 

Cinco de Mayo is just a few days away . . . and we’ve got some great news to share coming from Bodega Taco Bar. Which one, OmNom, which one? BOTH! But how do we decide which one to go to, OmNom? Well, it depends what you’re into:

Darien will have a pig roast, Patron tequila specials, music from PanaMusik, and a pop-up beer garden. Fairfield will feature the Bodega food truck, a sidewalk margarita bar, more Patron tequila specials, and “strolling guitar music.” If you are as hardcore as we hope you are, you could easily hit up one then get to the other. ;)

Then, just tres days later, check out their Mother’s Day brunch from 11-4 or dinner from 4-10. You take mom out, she gets a free cocktail. ;)

Vaya con Dios, OmNomivoritos!
