A few weeks ago, my family and I flew back to the Philippines. Instead of the direct flight to our hometown, Iloilo City, we took a flight to Manila to stay there for 2 nights.
We just had to visit my sister’s restaurant in Quezon City called the Naughty Nachos. I have heard a lot of people raving about it in social media. Nope, it didn’t come relatives but real true-blue customers who were just love their dishes. So I had to do a taste-test of my own, of course.
Naughty Nachos is perfectly located in Maginhawa Street in Quezon City where you find a wealth of university students, millennials and yuppies’ hang out and Naughty Nachos’ brand is right up the alley of what this demographic wants. It is found surrounded by several hip restaurants and mini-marts, them being the only restaurant that offers new version of nachos and marinated chicken wings. The interiors respond to the aesthetics of their typical customers: in-your-face big wall murals, lots of cool writings on the wall, funny-cartoonised nachos, simplistic long wooden table for groups and wide space for communal gathering on the second floor. Mind you, our niece did some of the black & doodles on the wall facing the stairs leading up to the 2nd floor. I also recognised the writings on chalk board to be of my sister’s. I saw lots of Jenga puzzle boxes and other board games by the side for customers to play with while waiting for their order. I think that is a cool idea!

So comes the food. I was on a vegetarian diet so I tried the Cheesy Beef Nachos (165 php) but I had to put the minced beef to sides for my hubby to eat. I was so in love with the cheese! It tasted creamy and authentic. It doesn’t taste like the regular preserved cheese you buy for nacho dips which taste plasticky. Their cheesy taste is so addicting plus the nachos itself has its own taste which you can actually eat even without any dips.
I also tried the Mango Avocado Nachos (220 php) sans the avocado that day though because there was no avocados available for that day. Vegetarians would rejoice because this dish is purely vegetarian. This dish tasted like summer. It was so cooling and filled with so much flavor.
My hubby was given their bestseller Spicy Sriracha Chicken Wings (199 php for 1/2 dozen & 395 php for 1 dozen) . If you love Korean marinated chicken bbq wings, their chicken wings which comes in other flavours: Sweet Soy Garlic and Classic Gravy besides Sriracha Wings, would answer your craving. My hubby had to eat two little casserole of rice due to these. By the way, the rice is placed in this cute little kaldero which reminds you of our home kaldero where we cook rice on stove or charcoal. I love that they took care of wonderful details like that and their dishes were placed in a nice long wooden plate that helps you when you need to take lovely photos for your food trip at Naught Nachos. They also provide plastic glove for customers if you want to eat using hands.

My sister made the Classic Vanilla MilkShake (155 php) herself for Naj which consist of vanilla, chocolate, strawberry and mango. Naj even assisted her as she created her yummy concoction. Of course, my sweet-tooth son enjoyed it a lot. We were also given an unlimited servings of their refreshing Japanese Red Iced Tea. They also have Naughty Milkshakes (185 php): Epic Smores, Better Than Snickers, Throwback Tsokolate and Cereal Killah.
