A whole room at this shop is dedicated to displaying wedding cakes, its forté. Kids' cakes can be adorned with anything from Shrek to Kermit the Frog. Basic sheet cakes can be ordered to serve anywhere from 15 to 96 guests (starting at $18.50). The cookie selection is worth testing, especially the Chinese almond and lemon coconut.

This old-school sandwich emporium won 2007’s categories for Best Sandwich and Best Soup. It prepares satisfying hot and cold hoagies at a decent price, with a chocolate chip cookie thrown in at no extra charge. The "sundown" is a staple for chronic dine-’n’-drivers; basically a turkey dinner in sandwich form, complete with stuffing and cranberry sauce. Try it on toasted whole wheat or sourdough instead of the standard roll, which quickly becomes too soggy to eat while steering, talking on your cell phone and jotting down the appointment you just made in your BlackBerry.

Cuisine: American

2.63 rating (8 votes)
A New Mexico tradition since 1952! For an award-winning (for both Best Burger and Best French Fries), quick burger or chili dog, fresh fries and fountain favorites that hit the spot for just a pocketful of change, it’s got to be Blake’s. Countless counters are scattered throughout the city, and each one is a model of efficiency and cleanliness. Why look any further? They’re easy to spot from afar—just keep an eye out for the giant Asian Uncle Sam sign. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

This bright, daisy-decorated shop has shiny, happy tea for shiny, happy shoppers of the Talin Market. Stop in for a quick teriyaki wrap, or relax for a minute and order a bubble tea while you surf their WiFi connection. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Buffett’s Candies

Albuquerque NM
(505) 265-7731

Mon-Sat: 9am-6pm Sun: 12:30-5pm (hours can change without notice)

3.33 rating (17 votes)
As you’re already well aware, Buffett's Candies is home to the largest candy cane this side of the Mississippi. (Admit it, you’ve always wanted to pop in and see if it’s got melon-sized bonbons to boot.) All the candies are made fresh, with real butter, cream and sugar, and if there are piñons in it, you can be sure they came from New Mexico. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Café Da Lat

Albuquerque NM
(505) 266-5559
Mon-Sat: 10:30am-9pm Closed Sunday (hours can change without notice)
Meals Served: LunchDinner
Cuisine: Vietnamese, Asian

3.07 rating (67 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)

Tue-Thu, & Saturday 11am-8pm Fri-Sat: 11am-9pm closed Monday (hours can change without notice)
Meals Served: LunchDinner
Cuisine: Chinese

1.94 rating (30 votes)
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.

If your grandma's like ours, she's not one for fancy meals with odd ingredients or avant-garde decor. Instead, she'll be after good ingredients and impeccable service. That's where Christy Mae's comes in, winners of Best Restaurant to Take Grandma in our poll. Owned by the Tricarico family, recipes cooked from scratch, in-house baking, hearty soups and beautiful chicken pot pies promise to please your granny and anyone else looking for a down-home atmosphere and good portions at reasonable prices. Now serving breakfast 7 to 10:30 a.m. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

2.81 rating (36 votes)
The Cooperage is old-school Albuquerque, right down to the dusty light fixtures. The barrel-shaped steakhouse has been a standby for 30 years thanks to its mile-long complimentary salad and soup bar, aged steaks (at a place like this, prime rib is king), and big dance floor that’s always packed on the weekends. Winners of Best Catering in 2007’s Best of Burque Poll. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

El Chicken

6200 Central Ave SE (Fairgrounds)
Albuquerque NM
980-8340

2 rating (6 votes)
Perhaps the least mobile food truck around, El Chicken roosts at the corner of San Pedro and Central, dishing out Mexican grilled pollo and carnitas to all comers. A basic grasp of Spanish is helpful, though not strictly necessary, and don’t even bother pulling out a credit card. (Alibi Staff, July 18, 2013)

Albuquerque NM
(505) 255-2910

4.07 rating (14 votes)
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)

Frank’s Famous Chicken and Waffles

513 San Mateo Blvd NE (Fairgrounds)
Albuquerque NM
712-5109
https://www.facebook.com/Fr...
11am to 10pm Monday-Thursday 11am to 11pm Friday-Sunday (hours can change without notice)
Cuisine: American

4.67 rating (3 votes)
You know what’s good here? The chicken. Also, the waffles. Ex-Lobo basketball player Frank Willis’s food may not be as famous as the hopeful restaurant’s name states, but that’s only because he’s just getting started. Willis and family know their way around a kitchen and serve up some great soul food, from the titular combo platter to cheese grits and beef hotlinks. (Alibi Staff, December 26, 2013)

Gen Kai

110B Louisiana Blvd NE (Fairgrounds)
Albuquerque NM
505-255-0112

4.5 rating (2 votes)
Rising up from the asphalt sea of the Talin Market parking lot, Gen Kai is a Japanese restaurant that offers an oasis from the heat and chaos of the International District. Sushi is on hand, naturally, and salt brothed ramen, but the real star here are the donburi bowls. Our favorite is the oyako don, in which dashi-soaked rice is topped with a fried combination of chicken and egg, with two forms of onion: bulb and green. (Alibi Staff, May 21, 2014)

Helen’s Bakery

1014 San Pedro NE (Fairgrounds)
Albuquerque NM
phone number unavailable
7am-7:30pm (hours can change without notice)
Meals Served: BreakfastLunch

3.34 rating (64 votes)
You can’t miss the pink, green and purple neon cross that adorns Helen’s Bakery, just north of Lomas. There you’ll find rows of Mexican pastries, cookies and rolls tucked away inside glass cases or cooling on a big metal rack up front. If you don’t speak Spanish, here’s how it all works: Walk up to the register, grab a pair of tongs and a cafeteria tray and load up on sweet treats. A little café serves savory Mexican snacks like tacos and chicharrones by the pound.

Miss Sai Gon

7915 Central Ave NE (Fairgrounds)
Albuquerque NM
(505) 266-1999
11am-9 pm every day (hours can change without notice)
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)

Pepper’s Ole Fashion BBQ

Albuquerque NM
(505) 967-6427
TUES-SAT: 11am-7pm SUN:1 pm-7pm CLOSED MONDAYS! (hours can change without notice)
Meals Served: LunchDinner

2.79 rating (41 votes)
Proprietor Daniel “Pepper” Morgan has an impressive résumé. More importantly, he learned to cook from his grandmother, who taught him the recipe for her barbecue sauce (tangy, smoky and practically drinkable) and passed on to him the soul of soul food. All of the barbecue at Pepper’s is spectacular. After hours of “mopping and basting” with sauce in the smoker—which burns hickory, applewood and mesquite—turkey legs, chopped brisket, chicken, rubbed ribs and sausage develop a glossy, sweet coating. Once a week, the menu is augmented by “Soul Food Saturday” specials, including oxtails and neck bones smothered in gravy and chitterlings. On the side, good luck choosing between garlicky mac ’n’ cheese, molten-hot fried okra, collard greens with smoked turkey, and sweet potato corn bread. Closed Sunday. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)
