Dim sum and sushi under the same roof? It's like a dream come true. The beautiful interior of the antique filling station just east of the federal courthouse is a marked change from the cozy home interior of where AmerAsia used to reside near the University. Hyangami Yi's food is just as good as ever. Expect her familiar dim sum plates and buns, and feel free to order sushi like you've never had in this town from her brother Woo Youn. He's got all the usual sashimi and nigiri in his adjoining restaurant, but it's the original, creative rolls that really set Sumo apart—that, and the adorable little train that ferries your pickled ginger around the sushi bar.

Chopstix is a real culinary adventure with authentic Beijing-style cuisine. You'll find dishes like sweet red bean-stuffed steamed buns, dan dan noodles, mustard and dried bean curd, and stewed chicken feet. Amuse your server to no end by ordering the salted pork noodles, a traditional dish that "only Chinese people like!" A few bucks gets you a huge bowl filled with a rich, porky broth, rice noodles, bok choy, tripe and irregular chunks of pork belly, striated with fat and muscle—not for the meek of pork, to be sure.

You may remember Bangkok Asian Fusion, which used to occupy this place. Now there’s a grand, shiny new sushi bar, with a huge fish tank behind it that lays out generous portions of great sushi. (Sadly, the tom yum ain’t what it used to be.) A plate of sashimi, densely and artfully arranged, turns the table into a school of piranhas. Each variety of fish is carefully garnished with complementary flavors, with the squid tossed in wasabi tobiko being particularly memorable. The sushi salad has so many chunks of raw fish among the greens that you can’t stick your chopsticks in without getting any. (Alibi Staff, September 1, 2011)

There’s not a whole heck of a lot to eat this far north in the city, so Far Northeast Heights dwellers are happy this clean, reliable Chinese joint set up in their neck of the woods. Serene earth tones and tasteful lighting set the tone. On the table, sesame chicken displays perfectly fried breading that’s crisp without being greasy and is generously sauced with sweet and savory soy notes. Wash those heavier fried foods down with a light, crisp Chinese beer. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Cuisine: Chinese

4.07 rating (15 votes)
Jade is 90 percent identical to any of the dozens of Chinese restaurants in town, but come for that other 10 percent--the little things Jade does better than all the rest. Take the barbecued spare ribs for example. At Jade, the barbecue sauce is sharper, spicier and with a hint of cherry flavor, and it’s just the first in a series of pleasant little surprises. The wonton soup tastes like it came from a stock and not just an overly salted broth. The sesame chicken is breaded Japanese-style instead of being heavily battered, and the duck is served in fat little chunks which are tender and pan-fried with the skin still on.

Reliability is something you should want in both a mate and a Chinese restaurant. Spend an hour or two appreciating a dependable partner who has a job, lives parent-free and pays bills, whilst at the same time admiring the availability of orange beef, Hong Kong chow mein and Szechwan shrimp.

Albuquerque - I-25 Corridor


4.33 rating (9 votes)
Plum Cafe Asian Grill serves a mix of Chinese, Vietnamese and Thai food that’s new to the city. Wyn Chao and his brother Brian Triem have been working for 10 months in preparation for their recent opening, but they’re a part of a family restaurant business that began decades ago. (They opened Banana Leaf in Rio Rancho, which they sold in 2006.) Plum uses the order-at-the counter model, but the dining area is spacious and elegant. Plus, its location in the Century Rio complex is right on the money for folks looking for a bite before or after the movies. Most dishes can be made vegetarian. The tama cod, battered and crispy, is glazed in a tamarind sauce that would appeal to orange chicken fans. The Thai mango curry is creamy and expertly spiced, but you can always ask to have the heat adjusted. (Alibi Staff, March 29, 2012)

We’ll be straightforward here: Go to Ko Palace because the food rocks and it has the best hot and sour soup in the city. Then check out the tchotchkes (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

The historic building at the corner of Central and Carlisle yields a spacious dining room with booths, tables, free Wi-Fi and dog-friendly patios. Inside, the Zeng family (Chow’s) have retained their focus on quality ingredients and many traditional family recipes, but with a twist: The menu is aimed at folks who want a fast meal in a comfortable atmosphere. Prices are moderate. Meals are ordered at the cashier, then delivered to the tables within minutes. Dishes are generously portioned for individuals rather than family-style. The menu draws freely from many Asian cultures with the emphasis on Chinese. Try the coconut curry or coffee chicken. (Alibi Staff, September 1, 2011)

On the streets of Asia, vendors often specialize in one dish handed down through generations, preparing quick meals for passersby like hot noodle bowls, exotic sandwiches and spicy skewered satays. It’s a hotbed of cultural diversity including Vietnamese pho, Korean noodles, Japanese udon, and Malay and Chinese stir-fry. StreetFood Asia's menu offers a dizzying array of sauces, toppings, garnishes, meats, seafood, and vegetables in dinner portions or small plates in the heart of Nob Hill. Exotic bar drinks and an long list of excellent sakes adds sparkle to your meal. (Alibi Staff, July 12, 2011)

Cuisine: Chinese, Thai

2.6 rating (16 votes)
A smattering of Chinese dishes that deserve to be called “authentic” is just one reason why Best Lee’s is worth a visit. The food is prepared and presented artistically. The atmosphere encourages the unexpected—visitors are often greeted by a bespectacled man who introduces himself as “Chinese Uncle” and returns to your table to make sure things are going well. And while the menu is mostly a mix of standard Americanized Chinese food (General Tso’s chicken, crab Rangoon) and pan-Asian cuisine, especially Thai food, there are some gems on the menu that you probably haven’t seen before. A bowl of Thai-style spicy red curry soup—rich with coconut milk and packed with vegetables, fresh basil and crispy tofu—is good enough to be served at a top-tier Thai restaurant.

This small Taiwanese-owned eatery is full of surprises. The regular menu is a long and interesting read, full of familiar and unusual Taiwanese and Chinese dishes (tea-smoked duck, steamed fish with ginger and scallions, dim sum). If you ask questions about the food, you might get a history lesson from Elsa Fang, who handles the front of the restaurant while her husband, Hsia, does the cooking. And, if you ask her to, she will translate the secret menu from Chinese—and talk you into addictive salt-and-pepper short ribs with Chinese beer and succulent three-cup chicken. The seasonal vegetables and other vegetarian offerings are strong here, too. Try the goji berry soup with pollock and pickled mustard greens in a soothing, slightly sour broth.

This little family-owned joint is a diamond in the rough. It kinda looks like hell on the outside but definitely tastes like heaven on the inside. This is where we go for the best egg drop soup and egg rolls. Plus, the wait staff is extra friendly. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Fu Yuang’s menu of soups is utterly soul-satisfying on a cold day. Try the dumpling-packed manduguk. The taegigogi kimchee jiege (pork and kimchee stew) in particular embodies the sour, pungent fermented flavor characteristic of many Korean dishes. The kimchee-dominated broth has an aroma that will strike some as strong—when your face is steaming in it, you might wonder what you’ve gotten yourself into. A moment of slurping the broth’s sour heat should melt away those concerns. The stew is packed with green and yellow onions, kimchee, tofu, and pork sirloin thin-sliced to maximizes the absorption of broth. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Ming Dynasty serves dim sum that comes the closest to an authentic Chinatown experience as you're going to get in Albuquerque. Affable owner Mihn Tang has made it easy for uninitiated diners to partake in this Chinese meal with an organized dim sum menu—dishes are grouped by price and include individual pictures. There's chilled mango pudding and coconut cake from the $2.35 list. Add 30 more cents for spareribs, steamed barbecue pork buns, stewed chicken feet, baked barbecue pork pies and beef balls. There are stuffed bell peppers and deep-fried eggplant, both with shrimp paste, and scallop dumplings on the $3.35 menu. Or climb to the top of the heap with a $4.35 plate of ox stew stir-fried Chinese broccoli and seafood salad rolls. You'll die happy. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

4.31 rating (9 votes)
The menu is a polished combination of Chinese and Japanese classics, with twists—and some entire dishes—you probably haven’t seen before. The sushi is unique, with many of the rolls forsaking seaweed in favor of thin-sliced cucumber or soy paper wrappings. They are drizzled with sauces, piled high with colored flying fish roes and artfully arranged with extra touches. The hot and sour soup is one of the best in Albuquerque—clear and light, with a complexity of texture and flavor. Elsewhere on the menu, a lineup of cooked vegetable dishes are dressed in several excellent housemade sauces. Vegetarians can add tofu to any of the vegetable dishes for $1—it comes crispy, kung pao style or as a buttered tofu steak with teriyaki sauce. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

For a quiet lunch or dinner in the Heights, escape the endless cycle of Chinese buffet runs, and sit down to a plate of pot stickers, or have a cup of hot and sour soup that delivers both hot and sour at the same time. The prices are reasonable, there is no open kitchen, and the chairs have plastic covers on them, thus eradicating the need for apologies when your kid’s mu shu pork takes a nosedive.

Cuisine: Asian, Chinese, Korean

3.53 rating (15 votes)
With a name like this, is there any doubt what the dining future holds? It is truly the yummiest of houses with Korean and multiregional Chinese fare like Mongolian pork, oyster beef, almond chicken and green mussels in black bean sauce. Throw in some Mapo tofu and soybean paste noodles and there’s something for every taste. The crispy fried wontons stuffed with crab and cream cheese are well worth a trip to the Heights, and definitely order the “happy family.” It would mean a lot to us. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)
