The Talin Market food truck pod meets on Wednesdays for lunch.

Food Truck Takeover

It’s Wednesday at high noon. A half-dozen food trucks line the parking lot at Talin Market, and they’re ready to serve up more than the usual hot dog. I’m here to sample the goods, beginning with The Chopping Block’s soft fish taco garnished with mango salsa. I wash it down with organic limeade at Make My Lunch, then head to Oz Patisserie’s over-the-top desserts, where I’m handed one of the best crème brûlées I’ve had in town.

Gallery Review

Taco and a Haircut, Two Bits

Fades are out, Rough Edges are in

This month's tasty (and tasteful) exhibition at Ace Barbershop, Rough Edges, features the beefy, cheesy works of Gabriel Luis Perez. The taco and cheeseburger art—or more precisely, painted collages of beef, lettuce and tortilla colors—has inspired fresh gab topics in the tiny Downtown shop.

Restaurant Review

Birriería y Taquería El Alex

Stew on this

There’s one reason to go to El Alex, on Fourth Street just south of I-40. It’s a bowl of soup. And it’s good enough to merit the trip on its own.

Stop reading this blog and go get a small menudo and a medium drink, only $5.50 hoy!

Today for lunch I enjoyed a chile relleno burrito, asada torta, french fries slathered in Tapatío and a melon agua fresca. This flavor explosion took place at Taqueria Mexico. The little restaurant on the corner of Lomas and Edith (414 Lomas NE, to be exact), is a sparkling jewel in Albuquerque's small but mighty culinary crown. On today's visit, rather than the abundance of festive decorations for a forthcoming holiday (I guess there are no immediately forthcoming holidays) that usually inhabit the interior, there were notices. The first alerted customers (three times on neon paper) that the Taqueria now has tripitas. I'll let Alibi food critic Ari Levaux explain what they are and why you should eat them. (I'm still scared.) The second called attention to the restaurant's presence on the web—here's its site, and here's the facebook page. Now you can salivate over the menu from the comfort of your home or workplace. Fabuloso!
