We’d Eat dat not cho average nachos By: renee ... gourmet nachos food truck uptown new orleans Blackened Fish Nachos Ok, so ya’ll already know that we travel a lot around Louisiana and Mississippi promoting biker stuff and the magazine, so we have to eat right? Normally we pick a restaurant that someone recommends the old, “you gotta try this”. And more often than not it’s a good place, but hardly ever just off da chain! Well I can finally say after a few months that I found one “off da chain” and where you would least expect it! On a vendor food cart!! That’s right, a food cart. You know like the old hot dog carts you see around the French quarter. But this not your ordinary food cart. This place has gourmet nachos! And not your “here is a snack nachos” These dudes nacho’s plate are a meal in itself. Did I mention the name? Oh wait, get ready for this… “Not Cho Average Nachos”. (I’ll never forget that name!) The owner Lucien Barbarin, and his family have taken the nacho a step above the norm. He even has Bananas Foster nachos, and alcohol infused ice cream! We found him outside the library in uptown New Orleans, and we were so glad we stopped! I got the cheeseburger bacon nachos (pictured here) and Andrew got the surf n turf nachos. This place has all the things a restaurant has, except no bathrooms! Haha. They are friendly, fast, clean, reasonably priced, and you don’t have to worry about bike parking! Park where ever he is! Check them out on Facebook to see where they will be next and make sure you stop by and try them out at the Mississippi Mayhem Music Festival and rally! April 5th through 7th at the Hancock County Fairgrounds, Kiln Mississippi! www.msmusicfest.com We give Not Cho Average Nachos 5 out of 5 stars because We’d Eat Dat!
