First on the list is Cafe de Au with their best-selling Ala Nachos as a crowd-pleaser. What makes it different and unique is the cafe doesn’t use ordinary nachos for this dish – they use fried molo wrappers instead of tortilla chips.
By this alone, you can probably realize that this gastronomic experience won’t be the usual.
Along with the fried molo wrappers, the cafe also combines grilled beef, fresh vegetables and of course, lots of lots of cheese to complete the dish!
Bonus points: the cafe has stable internet connection, so for digital nomads and lifestyle entrepreneurs, this is the place to be!
