Anna’s take: Upland Carmel Tap House is one of my favorites because itsfood is exceptional, the atmosphere is relaxing and the beer is always good. My go-to item is the Upland Nachos, which layers cheddar-jack cheese, fresh jalapenos, diced tomatoes and black beans on top of blue corn tortilla chips. It’s served with a side of tomato-jalapeno salsa. I always add spicy chicken for an additional $3. Diners also have the option to add Southwest tofu, pulled pork, spicy beef or seitan nuggets. Guacamole or sour cream are available for an additional 75 cents.

Nachos are listed under the starters portion of the menu, but if you’re not sharing, one order is plenty for a full meal.

Suggested pairings: My beer of choice is the Upland Wheat, brewed with organic coriander and orange peel. It’s light and a bit tart.
