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.

A Downtown standard in a new location. The restaurant’s lengthy menu boasts down-home Turkish, Mediterranean and Asian eats. His baba ghanoush is flavorful and nicely accented with a sprinkling of sumac. (Alibi Staff, July 12, 2011)

This is the spot for a satisfying pre- or post-movie bowl of noodles, with a menu that stretches across the Asian continent. Think pho and pad Thai with a side of Japanese cold sesame noodles. The warming Thai soup is restorative on chilly days. Inside, it’s clean, classy and calm, and open until 11pm on the weekends. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Downtown’s circle of Asian restaurants widens with Sushi Hana, a straight-shooting sushi joint with some Korean influences (it’s from the former owner of Yen Ching). Small and boldly decked in red and black, you’ll find affordable, familiar rolls in a contemporary atmosphere. Great for a quick lunch or a half-price sushi happy-hour trip (served from 4:30 to 7:30 p.m. weekdays). (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Sushi King is a small, hip, casual spot located a few doors up from the Century 14 Downtown movie theater. They serve fresh nigiri, sashimi and sushi rolls, plus an interesting assortment of seafood salads and noodle dishes. We love the variety and convenience this place offers when you’ve got a case of the Downtown ho-hums. They’ve also got excellent sake, so be sure to split a bottle with your sushi chef.

Albuquerque - Fairgrounds

Café Da Lat

Mon-Sat: 10:30am-9pm Closed Sunday (hours can change without notice)
Meals Served: LunchDinner
Cuisine: Vietnamese, Asian

3.07 rating (68 votes)
Consistently one of the best Vietnamese joints in town and one of the few spots that whip up durian-fruit shakes. Da Lat does a magnificent breaded frog leg appetizer. The crispy golden legs are scrumptious dipped in Da Lat's salty, tangy nuoc cham sauce. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Fareast Fuzion

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)

Miss Sai Gon

7915 Central Ave NE (Fairgrounds)
Albuquerque NM
(505) 266-1999

Meals Served: LunchDinner
Cuisine: Vietnamese, Asian

3 rating (1 vote)
What says “Albuquerque” more than a Vietnamese restaurant that throws Mexican dance parties on the weekend? Miss Sai Gon recently opened in the building formerly occupied by the Last Chance Saloon, on Central near Pennsylvania. Interior stonework, 11 flat screen TVs, a full bar and a big dance floor (complete with 18-inch disco ball) make this more than your typical pho outlet. The pan-fried noodles (#24) are fried into a pancake-like mass and served cut into rectangles. Oysters on the half-shell add a touch of the Pacific Northwest to the Viet-Mex ambience. The take-out menu has more options than the dine-in menu, so people don’t get overwhelmed, explained our server. (Alibi Staff, July 12, 2011)

Cuisine: Asian

This Asian-American eatery has a reputation for retro Pacific Rim decor and the clink of drinks with little umbrellas in them. If you're in the mood for East-meets-West fare like lettuce wraps, quaking beef or Tokyo crispy tofu, then load up the Prius and take a drive down Paseo del Norte. You’ll also find a large selection of fine loose teas and more liquor than you can shake a limbo stick at. Have a yen for wine? Here it comes in white, red and plum. (Alibi Staff, October 10, 2012)

May Hong

9800 Montgomery NE (Far Northeast Heights)
Albuquerque NM
(505) 291-8958
Mon-Thu 10am-9pm Fri-Sat 10am-10pm Closed Sunday (hours can change without notice)
Meals Served: LunchDinner
Cuisine: Vietnamese, Asian

3.48 rating (45 votes)
Every time we go to May Hong we kick ourselves for not going there more often. This place is great! The papery skins of the Vietnamese egg rolls are always perfectly golden, and the cinnamony pork perfectly tender. The menu here is expansive, but you can hardly go wrong. Just close your eyes and drop your finger anywhere— bun bo hue (spicy beef soup), ginger mussels and goi chai (Vietnamese salad) are particularly good. Wash it all down with a jasmine limeade or jackfruit julius. Just don’t go on Sunday—it’s closed. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Mr. Tokyo Japanese Restaurant

11200 Montgomery NE (Far Northeast Heights)
Suite 44
Albuquerque NM
(505) 292-4728
Lunch: Mon-Sat: 11:30am-2:30pm Dinner: Mon-Sat: 5-9pm Closed Sunday (hours can change without notice)
Meals Served: LunchDinner
Cuisine: Japanese, Sushi, Asian

4.33 rating (15 votes)
Since we’re long past the point when sushi was considered too exotic for New Mexico, it’s time to start paying attention to other fine Japanese favorites like tempura, hibachi-grilled meats and seafood, teriyaki without the La Choy, and the beauty of udon noodles. Mr. Tokyo is modestly sized, moderately priced, and an excellent place for a quick, relaxing lunch or a quiet dinner with friends and family. They have mostly repeat customers because they’re just so darn good, and the owner’s pint-sized daughter, Shyana, will even wipe off half your table for you (give her a break, she’s still a shortie). (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Sakura Sushi

4200 Wyoming NE (Far Northeast Heights)
Suite C2

Mon-Thu: 11am-9:30pm Fri-Sat: 11am-9:30pm Sun: noon-9pm (hours can change without notice)
Meals Served: LunchDinner
Cuisine: Sushi, Japanese, Thai, Asian

3.8 rating (20 votes)
Sakura Sushi serves fresh, generous sushi (duh), as well as dishes from Thailand and Laos out of a small strip mall on north Wyoming. But if you order one thing, make sure it’s the udon soup. One bowl is big enough for four people. Dip a spoon in and you’ll strike heaps of firm, dense noodles, caramelized meats and crisp-tender vegetables floating in a sweet-and-savory broth. The curries and “monkey ball” appetizers are among the menu’s other high notes. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Chef Noi Zaintz, formerly of Bangkok Café, opened Jasmine Thai and Sushi House last June in The 25 Way shopping center. With brightly colored walls trimmed in gold and pools of low light, Jasmine has a sort of classed-up opium den feel. There are more than 60 items, plus sushi; the menu gives an equitable amount of attention to appetizers, soups, salads, entrées and an entire page of vegetarian dishes. The service is awesome, and so are the No. 18 (spicy beef yum nuah salad), the fresh spring rolls and the pad Thai. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

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)

Occupying the same space that Japengo once inhabited, True Sushi bears a strong resemblance to its predecessor. The art is the same, and the sushi chefs still watch sports, but this one is actually a branch on the Sushi King family tree. Much of the sushi is on the heavy side, like the “iron monkey roll”—a deep-fried spicy tuna roll topped with baked scallop, crawfish and fish eggs, underneath a mop of bonito shavings. It's tasty, and your date would probably be impressed by your menu prowess if you order one. (Alibi Staff, February 13, 2012)

Albuquerque - Midtown

Kokoro Japanese Restaurant

5614 Menaul NE (Midtown)
Albuquerque NM 87110
(505) 830-2061
Mon–Sat: 11am–8pm Closed Sunday (hours can change without notice)
Meals Served: LunchDinner

4.3 rating (32 votes)
Kokoro Japanese Restaurant is teeny-tiny in size with a menu succinctly pared down to a handful of quality home-style Japanese dishes—noodle soup (udon or soba), curry, donburi bowls, bento and a small sushi menu. The place is vegetarian/vegan-friendly with dishes like “just curry” (white rice with curry sauce and Japanese pickles), a wakame bowl of seaweed and noodles, and potato croquettes (tempura potato balls). Kokoro even includes complimentary and unlimited green tea, coffee or water with meals. If it’s all about the little things, then Kokoro delivers in a big way. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Pho Nguyen

7202 Menaul NE (Midtown)
Albuquerque NM 87110

4.83 rating (83 votes)
Pho Nguyen (if you're a Vietnamese pronunciation newbie, say "Fun Win"), located in the same strip mall storefront once occupied by the casual Japanese eatery California Witches, is among the newer pho spots to join the pack. The environment is comfortable, the savory crêpes are tasty and a recent herby salad of crisp lotus stems, daikon radish, sliced carrot and sliced shrimp was refreshing and very good. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Viet Taste

Who doesn’t like a hot, inexpensive, filling bowl of pho? Or a tank of sweet-and-sour soup with catfish? We don’t know people like that, and neither should you. Having a light lunch of a papaya salad with shrimp and an avocado shake is just the thing to shake off days of stress and too many cheeseburgers. And since nothing on the menu costs over 10 bucks, you can treat your lazy, good-for-nothing co-workers to lunch. Just don’t call them names to their faces. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)
