5th Annual Albuquerque International Festival

The power of unity is enough to put a smile on anyone's face, or at least make them sigh with relief that confrontation was avoided. So it's no wonder that Albuquerque can bring people together to celebrate in a way that is not only befitting of the good time-loving Burqueños, but also something that brings a slice of the world right into our front yard, or in this case, Talin Market (88 Louisiana SE). The 5th Annual Albuquerque International Festival kicks off tomorrow, and the event will include such good treats and vibes, you'll wonder why people would leave the warmth of the desert and venture into the cold unknown. The event is free and will include everything from Native American rock to poetry, from ethnic food to jewelry and from karate demos to ribbon dancing. So spread the love and throw some international flavor into the local scene. Talin Market World Food Fare • Sat Sep 28 • 10am-5pm • FREE • ALL-AGES! • View on Alibi calendar

Go green: Many of Mean Bao's delicacies are infused with green tea.

After reading Gail Guengerich’s review of this Asian fusion bakery, I had to run out and try it immediately. I’m happy to report that it’s every bit as good as she says it is. Even if they were out of whoopie pies.

Not Your Roommate’s Ramen

Fresh noodles hit the spot at Talin’s bar

Talin Market World Food Fare

Talin’s humble beginnings in a narrow shop on Central and Wyoming bear little resemblance to the ethnic supermarket that now anchors the complex at Louisiana and Central. There you’ll also find Café Trang, Bahn Mi Coda (formerly Lee's Bakery), Bubble Tea & Coffee and a Subway franchise.

Restaurant Review

Fu Yuang

Korean flavors made with care

While many Asian cuisines create exotic flavors with strange ingredients, Korean food manages unfamiliar experiences from relatively pedestrian parts. Japanese dine on poisonous puffer fish, Mongolians enjoy their horse meat and the Thai are known to love crispy insectsbut surprisingly, these weird-sounding morsels can taste pretty normal. The deep-fried grasshoppers I tried on the streets of Bangkok had the flavor and texture of chicharrónes. Cobra tastes like chicken. A plate of stir-fried donkey in central China could have been beef. Korean dishes, meanwhile, can look normal enough on paper, but they take taste buds to interesting new places.

Ikebana flower arrangements, Thai and kalakriti dancers, taiko drummers, cooking demonstrations, food samples, calligraphy, brush painting and more round out the day's fare.

Best Lee’s

Far East flavors in the Northeast Heights

After two trips to China, I’ve noticed a trend: The dishes I remember from China don’t often show up on American Chinese restaurant menus, and vice-versa.
