Ziggy's Healthy Grill
If you have a hard time getting your head around the words "healthy," "tasty" and "nachos" and all in the same sentence, then try the Ziggy nachos ($7) at Ziggy's Healthy Grill (2202 W. Alabama, 713-527-8588). The chips are whole-wheat (I know what you're thinking, but hold on), and they're baked instead of fried. As a result, they stay extremely crispy until the end — no matter how much sauce they absorb, you can still pick them up and eat them with your fingers. Then there's the topping — spicy, lean, ground, garlic-laced turkey, topped off with black beans and melted mixed cheeses. What a pleasant surprise to find such a tasty dish that may actually do you some good. Well, maybe.
