A Taste of Mexico: The Best Nachos in Perth

The first nachos were said to have been invented in Piedras Negras, Mexico, in 1940, with just three ingredients. As the story goes, a group of women walked into the Victory Club in Piedras outside business hours. Aiming to please, Ignacio Anaya, the maître d’hôtel known as Nacho, ran to the kitchen and made a quick appetizer with ingredients he found. Today’s nachos know no end to their variations: They can have a number of seasoned layers, like these bricklayer-style nachos, or these vegetarian bean nachos, or simply be topped with cheese sauce.

The Mexican staple is a beloved recipe – so, much so that it takes the title of the world’s third most popular snack and is the perfect accompaniment to a tequila cocktail on a pleasant summer’s day. If you’re on the hunt to find some of the best nachos in Perth, here are the places to appease your appetite.
