Things are on a roll over on McKinney’s northwest side. Last week I talked about The Donut Kitchen which was very exciting. This week I’m giddy to tell you about a new little burrito and ice cream joint, Nom Noms. Judging from the crowds there, a lot of you already know about it, but I’m going to tell you anyway.
You’ll notice Grill & Chill in the name. Let’s break that down.
Nom Noms Grill
This is where you line up and choose from a beautiful assortment of fresh ingredients – meats, guacamole, four different salsas, cheeses, sour creams, and the list goes on. Make a burrito, a salad, tacos, or whatever else you can create.
Whether you prefer burritos or salads, and whatever combo you put on top, you can be sure that it is prepped daily in house – no canned foods here. My personal combo includes: green chili pork, grilled peppers and onions, jack cheese, cilantro, mango salsa (this is the key ingredient) and chipotle sour cream. Dude.
How do you like your burrito?
Nom Noms Chill
While the atmosphere at Nom Noms is chill, as the young folk would say, that’s not what we’re talking about here. We’re talking about the real chill – ice cream! Nom Noms offers nearly 50 flavors of ice cream and about a dozen sherbets and sorbets. All made in-house with fresh ingredients.
You can get your old standards, like vanilla, chocolate and rocky road, or you can get a little daring and try avocado cream, strawberry jalapeno or pine nut.
Plus Nom Noms makes beautiful bars from their ice creams, fresh fruits and other ingredients. I haven’t been able to move past the ice cream yet, but they look smashing.
Oh yes, don’t forget to ask for samples if you can’t decide.
The Other Kind of Chill
The atmosphere at Nom Noms is bright and cheerful, with a surfer vibe. The colorful photography on the wall features images of Cadillac Ranch, the Santa Cruz Boardwalk amusement park, and some really groovy VW buses. Throw in some friendly service and you’ve got a great atmosphere to enjoy your meal.
So, if you haven’t been there yet, head on over to Nom Noms. It will quickly become one of your favorites!Nom Noms Mexican Grill & Chill 6840 Virginia Parkway (in the Albertson’s Shopping Center) Suite 125 McKinney, TX 75071 214-592-0446
