Albuquerque - Old Town

Vinaigrette

1828 Central Ave SW (Old Town)
Albuquerque NM 87104
505-842-5507

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.

Meals Served: BreakfastBrunchLunchDinner
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.

Late-night UNM goers, you now have another option for the midnight munchies. The Pita Pit, an Ontario-based chain, has a mix-and-match pita sandwich menu and a modest but colorful dining room. To top it off, it’s open until 3am. Greek, American and Middle Eastern options abound in meaty pocket sammies—wipe the drool off your textbook and refuel!

Salathai combines kind, quick service with mega-amazing and affordable food. An excellent choice for vegetarians and carnivores alike, the menu is strong from beginning to end. Their affordable lunch specials boast a special Thai soup, egg rolls and a tapioca dessert that hits the spot.

Thai Cuisine II

4201 Central Ave NE (Upper Nob Hill)
Albuquerque NM 87108
(505) 232-3200
thaicuisinenm.com/home2.htm
Mon-Fri: 11am-9pm Sat: 4pm-9pm Sun: 5pm-9pm (hours can change without notice)
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.

This healthy eatery offers organic plant-based cuisine that’s (mostly) locally sourced. The fresh food fills you up with delicious energy so you can scoot your boot to some live music performed by local musicians when you’re done. We like the fresh komubcha, and never pass on the vegan cheesecake.

Albuquerque - Uptown

Cheese and Coffee

Mon-Fri: 10am-3:00pm Sat: 10:30am-2:00pm Closed Sunday (hours can change without notice)
Meals Served: Lunch
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, as well as a selection of German favorites. 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.

Elephant Bar Restaurant

2240 Louisiana Blvd NE (Uptown)
Albuquerque NM 87110
(505) 900-3837
elephantbar.com
Sun-Thu: 11am-10pm, Fri-Sat: 11am-11pm (hours can change without notice)
Meals Served: LunchDinner
Happy Hour!: 3:00pm - 7:00pm
If you’re in the Uptown Mall and in need of a bite to eat, and perhaps an elephant safari, Elephant Bar might be your ticket. OK, so the elephants aren’t real, and you can’t ride on them, but the large dining room is full of carvings and sculptures of them, even more than palm trees. The food is Americanized Asian mishmash, with good salads and seafood. An organic green salad with walnuts and creamy gorgonzola is large, tasty and simple in a good way. The wood grilled trout with lobster sauce is pure joy to eat. Even better is the ahi tuna salad, available as both entrée and appetizer sized, which consists of slices of seared fish atop a pile of seaweed and salad greens, with pickled ginger, wasabi and green sesame seeds.

Ortega’s

3617 Wyoming Blvd NE (Uptown)
Albuquerque NM 87111
(505) 298-0223
Mon-Sat: 11am-8:30pm Closed Sunday (hours can change without notice)
Meals Served: LunchDinner
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.

Mon-Sun: 7am-10pm (hours can change without notice)
Meals Served: BreakfastLunchDinner
Specializing in local, organic and otherwise natural food products, the deli is no exception and doesn’t disappoint in taste or selection. The deli folks will make a hearty sandwich to your liking—or pick up a quick pint of one of the tasty hot or cold spreads and salads. For a delicious vegan dessert, stick with the chocolate Amazon cake, layered with luscious, fudge frosting.
