Albuquerque - Food Truck

Soo Bak Food Truck

Albuquerque NM
(505)-221-9910
www.soobakfoods.com/2012/06…
Cuisine: Korean, Fusion
Soo Bak Food Truck’s tag line reads: “Korean Seoul Food”—an apt description of the innovative fusion of traditional Korean and New Mexican cuisine apparent in the dishes. You can get adventurous with the Korean chile cheese fries or stick with classic and deliciously light kimchi and rice. Vegetarians and meat-eaters alike will be pleased with the fresh mandu (veggie dumplings) or daeji bulgogi (spicy pork) tacos.

This is the spot for satisfying pre- or post-movie cravings 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, calm and open until 11pm on the weekends.

On a Korean kick? This is the best place in town. Not only is the proprietress the absolute nicest person you will ever meet, but her food is heaven. Try the delicious bulgogi (Korean beef) tacos, refreshing udon avocado salad, hearty bi bim bob with Korean bbq chicken, tasty don kasu (crispy pork cutlet with curry) and the savory vegetable pancake. Also, don’t forget to ask for a little cup of the best green tea ice cream you will ever taste.

Meals Served: LunchDinner
You may remember Bangkok Asian Fusion, which used to occupy this place. Now there’s a grand, shiny sushi bar with a huge fish tank behind it that lays out generous portions of great sushi. 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 seafood salad has so many chunks of raw fish among the greens that you can’t stick your chopsticks in without getting any.

Meals Served: LunchDinnerOpen Late
Gecko’s expanded with a popular Northeast Heights location that’s housed in a building that looks like a jukebox, for some reason. Even though it’s clear across town, you’ll still probably bump into folks you know as you’re sipping a wicked Bloody Mary and enjoying tidbits from the affordably priced tapas menu.

Dinner: Daily from 5pm The Lounge: Daily from 3pm Happy Hour: Daily 3-6pm (hours can change without notice)
Meals Served: DinnerOpen Late
Wine flights are the best way to try different selections without going broke, and Savoy has some interesting choices. They pair perfectly with the restaurant’s stunning interiors and lovely New American dishes—stovetop clam bake, grilled peach salad and the house charcuterie plate. For dessert, there’s praline-chocolate torte, house-made blackberry-Chambord ice cream, cheese plates and, of course, a glass of La Spinetta Moscato d’Asti.

Mon-Wed Closed Thu-Sat 3pm-10pm Sun 12pm-6pm (hours can change without notice)
Meals Served: LunchDinner
The creations of the resident food truck of Dialogue Brewing aren’t just tasty, they’re beautiful. Though the tacos are relatively small, we highly recommend the karaage tacos—the kitsune slaw is life itself. (The size of the portions don’t matter as long as you add a side of Thai fries.)

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 table within minutes. Dishes are generously portioned for individuals rather than family-style. The menu draws freely from many Asian cultures with emphasis on Chinese. Try the Mongolian noodles or coffee chicken.

Gecko’s has a killer patio in a corner of Nob Hill that’s perfect for people-watching. Set directly between La Montañita Co-op and Scalo, you’ll be sure to bump into folks you know as you’re sipping a cocktail and enjoying tidbits from the affordably-priced tapas menu. On Mondays the wings are 50 cents each, and on Wednesdays after 6pm you can get a cheeseburger for $5.50. Watch some sports, eat a burger and enjoy a seasonal ale.

Nearby Theater: Guild Cinema (See Film Times)
The cuisine here goes by the moniker “progressive New Mexican,” which seems to mean adding green chile to a cubano sandwich, duck to a tamale and the like. More impressive is the extensive beer lineup, featuring over 100 local New Mexican brews. Try the ahi tuna wonton tacos.

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. StreetFood Asia is a hotbed of cultural diversity serving Vietnamese pho, Korean noodles, Japanese udon, and Malaysian 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 a long list of excellent sakes add sparkle to your meal.

Zinc is a delightfully renovated historic space in Nob Hill, reborn as an upscale restaurant serving elegant American food with noticeable French inspiration. Downstairs, the cellar bar attracts a younger crowd for drinks and music. The happy hour menu, wines by the glass and prices are the best around. Give the brunch a try, and while you’re at it, try a Taos Mule from the bar.

The Far North Valley setting is gorgeous, inside and out. (The spacious courtyard overlooks 10 acres of farm field.) The local and organic ingredients are meticulously sourced, and the food is reasonably priced for the level of quality you get. Several salad options and vegetarian entrées make it a perfect place to graze. For brunch, try their carne adovada with eggs. Don’t forget a refreshing dessert of house-made ice cream or a sorbet trio.

Meals Served: DinnerOpen Late
Owner and 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. The ingredients he are primarily locally sourced meats and veggies, and are surprising priced low for a restaurant dealing in clean, local food. We like the marinated tilapia, served with red chile-and-coconut-infused basmati rice, sauted spinach, and a dried fruit and ginger chutney and—naturally—jerk chicken wings served in a pineapple curry dipping sauce.

Meals Served: LunchDinner
Well, aloha! Artificial palm trees and beach murals wrap around elevated booths that look over tables with wicker chairs—there’s even a tiki bar and walls paneled in bamboo. Fittingly, Pacific Paradise serves up diverse cuisine from all around the Ring of Fire, Asia and Hawaii. And the tropical ice creams are fantastic. Mild and almost savory, the avocado ice cream is a calming end to a large meal, while the plum wine ice cream is light and slightly tart with chewy pieces of fruit.

Sushiya Asian Fusion Cuisine

2906 Juan Tabo Blvd NE (Northeast Heights)
Albuquerque NM 87112
(505) 275-4777
Mon-Thrs: 11:30am- 9pm Fri-Sat: 11:30am- 9:30pm Sun: noon- 9pm (hours can change without notice)
Meals Served: LunchDinner
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 roe 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.

Meals Served: DinnerOpen Late
Cuisine: Fusion
In addition to an upscale selection of booze, the cozy and modern Q Bar serves a brief but pleasantly appetizing menu of nibbles and noshes. The dishes are small enough to make good snacks and expensive enough to keep them that way—you'd have to spend more than you'd like in order to really fill up.

Seasons’ rooftop patio is one of our favorite wine-drinking destinations, especially when it’s nice out. There are heaters up there for chilly nights, the courtyard fountain provides a calming gurgle, the view of the mountains is great, and the happy hour menu has outstanding dishes at more-than-reasonable prices.

Vinaigrette

Albuquerque NM 87104
505-842-5507
www.vinaigretteonline.com
Mon-Sun: 11 am-9pm (hours can change without notice)
A restaurant that focuses mostly on salads may be a hard sell for meat-happy Burqueños, but make no mistake: Vinaigrette does salad right. From gourmet options that feature duck and arugula to more delicate fare with pomegranate seeds and shoestring yams, Vinaigrette presents a world of salads you may not have known existed. And much of their menu is locally grown at their fields in Nambé, too.

Talin is the grandmother of all ethnic grocery stores in Albuquerque. Though the store once stocked exclusively Asian ingredients, the merchandise is expansively global with Caribbean, Indian, European, Latin American and Middle Eastern ingredients alongside the Japanese snacks, Korean condiments, Vietnamese noodles and Thai sticky rice. The freezer section and produce departments are unbeatable for the breadth and depth of unfamiliar ingredients, so set aside at least an hour for your first trip. There’s also a large, tempting prepared foods area and a maze of housewares, gifts and wine. The Talin Ramen Bar has expanded to include a new menu with select entrees and deli dishes. No more paper plates for eat-in dining. A can’t-miss food experience in Albuquerque.
