This homey New Mexican joint is popular, and though it’s much bigger inside than you can tell from the street, regulars pack the place tighter than a tamale. Barelas is known for huevos rancheros, and they are tasty here, slathered in particularly good red chile and served with a fresh flour tortilla. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Cecilia is the matriarch of one of Albuquerque’s best breakfast burritos and red chile. Clinging close to the heart of Downtown on Sixth Street and Silver, Cecilia makes the food herself in the kitchen. The red chile is no joke, and the prices are pretty friggin’ cheap too.

Throw down about $6 at this New Mexican joint and you’ll get more red chile pork stew than you can eat in two sittings (we know, we tried). Make it $9 and a plate of carne adovada taquitos will fill your belly with a flavorful Southwestern zing, and they’ll be accompanied by some of the best sopaipillas in town (and real honey to douse them in).

Come chill in Chill’N where they feature hand-crafted ice cream and artisan treats individually frozen for each customer with liquid nitrogen. Conveniently located in Green Jeans Farmery where you can also grab a bite or a beer, this unique dessert shop will knock your socks off with their organic frozen treats.

You’d be fine just ordering a bag of house-made tortillas and sitting down. But luckily, Duran’s also has some of the best enchiladas in town, and Duran’s Station serves beer and wine to cool you down after eating their piping hot chile. Order anything “christmas” style and you’ll fit right in with the regulars. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Gelato is a gift from the gods. These flavors are fantastic (try the hazelnut), the texture is soothing and it's lower in fat than ice cream. Stop by Ecco for a tasty frozen treat, a fresh deli sandwich and a European-style café experience. Open until 10pm on Fridays and Saturdays—a godsend for latenight munchers in the area!

If you’ve got a hankering for a seasoned steak sandwich or some fresh fish tacos, give Eli’s Place (formerly known as Sophia’s Place) a try. The very friendly service and eclectic fare make the eatery a true North Valley gem and one of the best restaurants in Albuquerque. Chow down on a hearty sandwich on Eli’s shaded patio, or eat an organic egg omelet (served with fresh salad greens and (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

At Frost, get a taste of the finest authentic Italian gelatos and sorbets. The extensive menu can be overwhelming but the cheery owners and staff are readily available to offer suggestions and samples. The shop offers classic flavors like vanilla and mint chocolate chip along with unique ones like chai tea and crema di biscotti, in your choice of a cup or a waffle, sugar or mini sugar cone.

This retro-style ice cream shop is super kid-friendly with spill-indifferent concrete floors and tons of nostalgic fun for everyone. Kids are encouraged to adorn their ice cream with the help of "topping tokens," which they can pump into low-set gumball machines filled with fixings like crushed Oreos, Animal Crackers and Fruity Pebbles. ISIC also serves up shakes, splits and other specialty treats to order, and most are between $1 and $5. Cheap! (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Itsa Italian Ice is an old favorite for many Burqueños. Originally located on Lomas years ago, Itsa was—and is—for kids and grown-ups alike. Diners can choose from several fruity flavors like cantaloupe, lemon, cherry, watermelon, black raspberry, lime, grape or banana, as well as other flavors like chocolate or "blue moon" (cotton candy).

This paleteria sells all kinds of freshly made cold treats like mango and hot-cold-sweet-salty-sour chile paletas (popsicles), strawberries with cream and nonalcoholic piña coladas. Of course, you can still satisfy your sweet tooth at the original La Michoancana, which is just south of Isleta and Rio Bravo. Either way, it’s worth the drive. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

This sunny café occupies the sweet spot in The Village at Silver and Wellesley vacated by Café Giuseppe. Giuseppe regulars will be happy to know Limonata still offers killer espresso but we recommend the lavender lemonade to cool off during the afternoon heat. (Alibi Staff, December 10, 2012)

and stuffed sopaipillas. The red chile is generally milder than their green but is seasoned just right. Consistency, generous portions and fair prices make Little Anita's an Albuquerque mainstay—not to mention its many locations ranging from full-service dining to quick and easy take-out counters. The Old Town location offers the best of both worlds. Open for breakfast, lunch and dinner. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

One of the crown jewels of Albuquerque, Mary & Tito’s is the kind of place you’ll want to bring visitors so they can experience the wonder of chile. If your kids are just being introduced to the stuff, start ’em off here. The red chile is velvety smooth, sweet and hot, but not as hot as the tangy green. The turnover (a calzone-shaped stuffed sopaipilla) or Mexican pizza on fresh fry bread is guaranteed to make a regular out of you. Go for lunch during the week and dinner on Friday and Saturday.

Mick’s offers excellent value for your dollar. The dining room is no-frills and the menu selections are also basic, but it's done right. Breakfast is served all day alongside New Mexican fare like wrist-sized enchiladas, fat, moist tamales and beyond-tender carne adovada. The service is lightning-quick. And the chile? The red has a nice red-orange color and a medium heat. The green's even better with a beautiful emerald color, a warm, fruity taste, medium heat and just enough body. Frito pie has pride of place on the menu, but best of all, the bill won't burn you. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

With sometimes too-loud live music and a party-hard crowd, it’s usually best to avoid this place on the weekends. But stop in for a late lunch or weeknight burger and a beer, and you’ll get a different experience. The bartenders always present an excellently executed drink—from whiskey sours to Moscow mules—these people really know what they’re doing and will serve you kindly under their freezing air conditioner.

This is the kind of friendly, local and, above all, comfortable coffee shop that has become a rare breed since the caffeine-laced heyday of the mid-’90s. Napoli Coffee offers a warm and inviting sitting area that makes it a perfect hangout spot. You can pick up all the usual espresso drinks here as well as iced coffee or even an espresso milkshake.

The process used to create Olo’s vibrant flavors guarantees live, active cultures in the product. There are 10 flavors available on tap at any given time, every one richly flavorful. (You can find this week’s list of flavors on Olo's website.) Follow the signs and take a cup to the stainless steel taps. Once you have your yogurt(s) in a cup, there are more than 45 toppings to crown your dish. Finish it off with a swirl of whipped cream and weigh in at the register. At less than 50 cents an ounce, you can customize a treat that satisfies your palate and your pocketbook. (Alibi Staff, November 18, 2010)
