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)

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
(505) 830-2061
Mon–Sat: 11am–8pm Closed Sunday (hours can change without notice)
Meals Served: LunchDinner

4.29 rating (31 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). Voted Best Japanese for 2013. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

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.

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)

The lunch menu at contemporary Crazy Fish is accessible and affordably priced, with selections like the teriyaki salmon lunch box ($6.95): salmon served with miso soup, rice, salad or stir-fried vegetables. Other options include calamari salad ($6.25) and a barbecued eel bowl ($7.25). At dinner, the menu is more exciting but not much more expensive. A starter of edamame will run you $3.50 and creamy Asian mushroom udon pasta is $10.50. There's also a full sushi bar. (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)

Sit out on the pretty patio and your server will help you cook your dinner on the built-in grills. They’ll also show you how to wrap your spicy grilled meat or seafood in herb and lettuce leaves. For a full course of fine lunchtime cuisine, try the tofu kimchi appetizer, ginger tea and spicy chicken box plate. Nothing in Nob Hill goes down better. Go big on the appetizer list for the taste, but if you're cutting costs, the box plate menu offers more than enough chow for a starving midday appetite. And it's worth every penny. Also, Nob Hill’s newest sushi bar (behind Korean BBQ House) offers all-you-can-eat sushi for $18 at lunch and $23 at dinner. Ordering á la carte is always allowed, but if you’re going for the all-you-can-eat, you’ve got two pages full of options and an hour in which to explore them. Edamame, tempura, miso soup, rolls, hand rolls and a small selection of nigiri are all fair game.

Too much time studying can turn the sweetest soul into a big ’ol crab. But just so you remember that not all crabs are bad, take a lunch or dinner break at Shogun. There’s sushi, sashimi and nigiri, and the soft shell crab rolls are a treat worth mentioning a couple of times. The best part is watching your food get made right in front of you and then floated around the table on an armada of wooden boats. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

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)

The Thai Vegan menu includes fake shrimp, chicken, fish and pepper steak. That said, it isn’t the vegetarian faux meats that makes the place so good, but rather the fact that the cooks really know what they’re doing as they whip up their vegan delights. The Thai iced tea (yup, that’s vegan too) is like sipping Bangkok through a straw. (Alibi Staff, April 10, 2013)

Ah, the joys of a good bowl of kimchi and rice. Arirang Oriental Market offers exotic groceries, dishes and cool collectibles. The compact lunch counter is also a fine stop for a tasty Korean lunch. Try the barbecued beef, pork or squid, or the seafood pancakes, and then wash it all down with a cup of hot barley tea. Breath mints not included. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Sure, from the outside Azuma still looks like a Black Eyed Pea, but inside every trace of country kitsch has been erased and replaced by a serene Japanese theme. Half of Azuma is devoted to teppan tables where patrons can sit and watch as a cook prepares their dinners with a few flashy tricks. On the other side of the restaurant, booths are separated by pretty panes of frosted glass and a line of stools hug the sushi bar. In addition to sushi, Azuma's menu offers many cooked items including noodles and a variety of grilled meats and vegetables that will ensure the place's appeal to nearby families and folks who are new to Japanese food. Open until 11 p.m. on Friday and Saturday. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

The pho is fragrant, the coffee is strong and sweet, and ordinary dishes are interesting because you want to know how this kitchen is going to finish it. Spring rolls are a level above others, well-rolled and multi-textured. This place has one of the crispiest papaya salads in town; the salad topped with two flavors of beef jerky is especially out of hand. A steamed tilapia dish yields white, flaky fish bathed in a dark, black peppery sauce and is flanked with broccoli and carrots. Nice looking desserts, wine and saki. (Alibi Staff, August 23, 2011)

4.03 rating (22 votes)
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.

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)

It’s a Japanese restaurant that looks and smells like a Chinese restaurant. (You can smell the egg rolls from the parking lot.) The restaurant is part of a chain in a handful of locations around the Southwest, and the signs of heavy investment are plentiful—starting with the large glass fountain by the front door. Private dining rooms with cut-out floors beneath the table allow patrons tosit on the floor without actually bending their legs. A seafood soup in clear broth is as delicious as it looks. Although an order of hamachi was on the chewy side, the plate of sashimi it came on contained some of the larger chunks of raw fish to be had in this town. And here’s a penny-pinching math problem for you: Should you get the regular sashimi plate which contains 15 pieces for $20, or the deluxe which has 18 pieces for $30? We chose the regular, which actually had 17 pieces (what, you don’t count the pieces when you get sushi?) and spent the savings on rolls. (Alibi Staff, December 6, 2012)

A quiet restaurant in a strip mall just north of Lomas on Juan Tabo, Huong Thao has been serving up Vietnamese food for almost two decades. The place is unassuming and the service friendly. Try the fresh spring rolls and a big bowl o’ pho. For dessert, you can’t go wrong with a creamy coconut shake. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)
