Summer brings all the greatest thing you could imagine like travel, island, beach, colorful dresses, mall sales, movies, foods, etc. And when we talk about food, it must be something that you can take with you anytime, anywhere you go, easy to bring and will satisfy big cravings. Snacks!
And I just discovered this new goodies treats which has been in SM Megamall for quite sometime. Owned by a good friend Anj and her sister, Karlene, they put up their food business side-by-side at the mall’s ground level near the escalator going to the Food Court area in Building A.
Anj invited me to try-out their fast-food snacks, she and her sister developed because they both food-lovers, so to speak.
Anj has her Joe Nachos – fresh yellow corn unsalted tortilla that has a unique salsa ingredients that according to Anj, makes the flavor of her best-selling snacks. Indeed, when I tried it, I couldn’t get over it. Bite after bite, the crisp tortilla plus the delicious salsa and toppings were just amazing. For extra bucks, customers like me, can add more toppings or salsa to make it even more flavorful.
While Anj is concentrating on crispy snacks, her sister Karlene, managed her own baked creations just a few steps from her sister’s nacho stands. Karlene, a fresh HRM graduate, showed me the tasty sweet goodies from her Classic Banana Loaf to Moist Chocolate Loaf. Of course, I did sampled one of them. She handed me a piece of the Moist Chocolate Loaf and I fell in love with its texture and the not-so-too-much-sweetness. It’s real chocolate treat without the guilt on it. Perfect as it comes into the mouth and, one can smell the fragrance of the cake itself. Good thing of Karlene’s baked goodies, you will really get a full tummy, like you are getting an exact amount of satisfaction from every peso you spent on it. One thing for sure, Karlene can compete with local and big brands when it comes to pastry products.
I wonder and told these girls that they can market their products by putting up a big store, not just like a stand-alone kiosk. But of course, it’s too early for them as they are still testing the waters of their businesses. But from my vision, they will make it big.
So this, I am recommending Joe Nachos and Karlene’s if you are craving for some nachos and baked loaf goodies treats. Just visit their kiosk at SM Megamall, you can easily spot this two food stalls near the escalator. And so I heard, that Joe Nachos have opened another kiosk in SM Hypermart Pasig and Karlene’s at Eastwood Mall 2nd floor, if I’m not mistaken. Good job!
Now here’s a little trivia. You wanna know why Anj’s business is named Joe Nachos? I know she’s going to kill for this, hehehe. Joe Nachos came from her father’s name. And who is Anj’s dad? The man from Love Notes himself, Mr. Joe D’ Mango! Sweet daughter!
