Planet Fresh Burritos (Santa Cruz): Regular Nachos with Chicken
In any case, these were some very "fresh" tasting nachos, with just the right amount of cheese and chicken. And they actually gave you enough chips so that you didn't just end up with globs of goo in the bottom of the plate at the end. And move over, Andale (see past post) - this is probably the best grilled chicken I've had: not dry and chewy - moist and tender. Nice!
Rating: 3½ out of 5
Rating Notes: (would have been a 4 but for the fact that they brought me my nachos with no chicken at first and then had to add it to the top = lame)
Side Note: They have a salsa at Planet Fresh called "Sweet and Hot " that is totally awesome. This goey, Asian-esque salsa went great with the usual nacho flavors, but I'll bet it's killer if you combine it with one of their less pedestrian meat selections!
More interesting side note: Back in the day (mid-90's), a friend of mine had a band that played in this same space (I forget what it was called), and when I showed up, they had no one to run the mixing board for the show. Since I'm a musician myself, they chose me. Cool - I was almost part of the band - chicks dig that, right?
