Ayurvedic cuisine supposedly works with your body’s natural energies and constitution to create “soul” food that’s on a whole new plane. Winners of Best Vegetarian in our restaurant poll several years running, Annapurna’s food is satisfying but never heavy and, well, you just feel better after you eat there. Try Sunday brunch with spiced gluten-free, vegan pancakes and breakfast quinoa (but you’ll have to live without scrambled eggs, sorry). The shaded courtyard to the side of the restaurant is spectacular. Voted Best Vegetarian Restaurant for 2013. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Late-night UNM goers, you now have a healthy option for the midnight munchies. The Pita Pit, an Ontario-based chain, has filled the old “Pig and Calf” laundromat across from UNM with a 20-plus, mix-and-match pita sandwich menu and a modest but colorful dining room. To top it off, they're open until 3 a.m. and they deliver (also until 3 a.m.). Greek, American and Middle Eastern options abound in meaty and vegetarian pocket sammies—wipe the drool off your textbook and refuel! (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

A sign outside Salathai advertises vegetarian specialties, and perhaps the most special of them all is the eggplant delight. It’s like a Thai version of ratatouille, with purple eggplant, onions, garlic, basil, and red and green pepper. The menu is strong from end to end, but the seafood dishes are the strongest, especially the fish dishes. A sweet piece of tilapia is batter-fried to a light-brown crisp and smothered in a floral green curry. Decadently greasy catfish gracefully absorbs a shredded salad in a sweet, tangy sauce. Thom kha talay, a coconut seafood soup, is aromatic and packed with proteins. The mussels and herbs are a simple bowl of comfort, delivering the distilled essence of the ocean.

Thai Cuisine II

4201 Central Ave NE (Upper Nob Hill)
Albuquerque NM
(505) 232-3200

Sure, it looks like an old Dairy Queen on the outside—but inside, it’s totally Thailand (just check out the caddy of housemade condiments). The menu’s large selection of salads is a strong suit, including crispy, delicate green papaya and a not-to-be-missed tempura trout salad (sop up the tamarind dressing with a side of sticky rice). The tom yum soup is perhaps the best in town, and you can choose between chicken and veggie broth in some of the other good soups here. Most dishes—like pad cha vegetable stir-fry and creamy, fragrant red curry—can be ordered vegetarian, too. There’s also a small sushi menu that offers big, adequate rolls.

Meals Served: Lunch

4.54 rating (13 votes)
We love this strange little place with aggressively retro décor, like super ’70s wood paneling. Cool. Plus, they serve New York deli stuff like bagels with lox and cream cheese, and a club with dill Havarti on rye bread. Our favorite option is the salad trio—you get to pick from Caesar, Greek, apple Waldorf, pasta, potato, fruit, tuna, chicken or egg salads, and it comes with a roll. Wash it down with a Dr. Brown's soda. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Ortega’s

3617 Wyoming NE (Uptown)
Albuquerque NM
(505) 298-0223
Mon-Sat: 11am-9pm Closed Sunday (hours can change without notice)
Meals Served: LunchDinner

3.2 rating (5 votes)
Ortega’s bills itself as serving “healthy New Mexican” cuisine. A contradiction in terms, you say? Well, kind of. You’ll still get the goopy eggs, greasy cheese and meaty red chile, but with a few surprising differences. Notably, they serve whole beans instead of refried, use no lard and make whole-wheat sopaipillas. That’s right—whole-wheat sopaipillas. Which are deep-fried. But, hey, at least they have more fiber.

Rio Rancho

Namaste

Rio Rancho NM
(505) 896-3126
www.namastenm.com
Mon-Sun: 11:30am-2:30pm, 5-10pm (hours can change without notice)
Meals Served: LunchDinner

4.82 rating (20 votes)
The meal begins with a simple greeting, namaste, and is quickly followed by a plate of pappadam and chutney, vivid green like fresh-cut grass. Things continue to impress from there. Virtually unheard of in Burque, Namaste’s Nepalese dishes—like succulent chicken momos—throw noodles and dumplings into the Indian repertoire. By highlighting this region that blurs the line between India and the rest of Asia, and doing it with impeccable service, Namaste quietly sets itself apart as a worthwhile reason to drive to Rio Rancho. Don’t miss the masala tea—a Darjeeling brewed with cardamom, cloves, cinnamon sticks and milk. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Body Café is the dining side of Body of Santa Fe, a gym and spa with all the trimmings. The ingredients are wheat-, dairy-, and sugar-free. And 90% of the ingredients are organic. The extensive veg menu also caters to omnivores with dishes such as a tower of quinoa with its seared tuna, brunoise carrots, curried potatoes, and a sesame-and-fruit salsa. Liquids take up half the menu with herbal elixirs, straight-up juices, and smoothies made with coconut milk and fruit. Kick back with organic wine, beer and saké. (Alibi Staff, December 6, 2012)

Owner/chef Ahmed Obo was born on the island of Lamu off the coast of Kenya, among the culinary traditions of Africa, Arabia and India. His food reflects the Lamu style of culinary fusion. It’s designed to be interesting and different but doesn’t attempt to force anyone too far from their comfort zone. The ingredients, including a host of local meats and veggies, is priced unusually low for a restaurant dealing in clean, local food. Try the marinated tilapia, served with red chile-and-coconut-infused basmati rice, sautéed spinach and a dried-fruit-and-ginger chutney. (Alibi Staff, January 31, 2012)

Tune-Up Cafe

Meals Served: BreakfastLunchDinnerOpen Late
Nearby Theater: UA DeVargas (See Film Times)

The Tune-Up Café is an ace in the hole for Santa Fe restaurant recommendations, especially if you’re planning a meal for picky eaters. The café is filled with a glow. People-friendly touches include kids’ books, good music and lighting, and a long mirror that lets wall-facing diners feel like they’re a part of the room. Meanwhile, the food manages to be a lot of things without following any one path. It’s not a burger joint, but the burgers are good. It’s not New Mexican, but Tune-Up serves chile rellenos and huevos rancheros and green chile. On paper, its most unique influence is from El Salvador, but you could eat there many times and not even notice. There’s usually a vegan soup and an incredible steak (from local, grass-fed cows) on special. (Alibi Staff, March 29, 2012)

Paddy Rawal's OM: Fine Indian Dining features primarily Northern Indian fare with touches of the Southwest and even a dash of Indian/Chinese fusion. If you’ve ever thought that your paneer could use some green chile and Szechuan sauce, this is the place for you. Vegetarian options available. (Alibi Staff, February 1, 2013)
