Tapping the Market

How local breweries and food trucks serve each other

By
By only selling beer, many taprooms welcome patrons to bring food themselves, which has created opportunity for other businesses. Area restaurants offering takeout and delivery have benefited, but having so many hungry beer drinkers in one place has also provided a niche for food trucks. While most of the trucks regularly visit UNM, office buildings and other locations around town, taprooms make up a large part of their hours of operation.

Veggie Migration

Thai Vegan dishes in a new location

By
During its short tenure on Central, east of Carlisle, the now defunct Filipino Kitchen was perhaps the town’s most carnivorous eatery. The restaurant space, which shares a plaza with the Route 66 Malt Shop, is now inhabited by a new outpost of Thai Vegan, the original being on Osuna near San Mateo.
