A friend texted me today to ask for some reccos for restaurants in Albuquerque:

  • Sadie’s in North Valley
  • El Pinto in North Valley
  • Frontier on Central – iconic spot, breakfast, maybe too touristy
  • Flying Star for lunch
  • El Parasol in Santa Fe – dive kitchen (carne adovada burrito)
  • The Shed in Santa Fe

My warning was –  no place is going to be upscale – but you’ll get good New Mexican food at any of those spots. There may be better places since I’ve left, but those are the ones I remember…

…and hot sopapillas with honey in a squeeze bottle, and the smell of roasting green chile in a hot sun and prickly pear jam.
