It’s a classy kind of joint, this Antiquity; tablecloths, waiters with bow ties, and fancified French food that will push you toward ecstasy even as it drains your pocketbook . But it’s unmistakably Albuquerque, too. For one thing it’s in an ancient Old Town hacienda, the kind with an uneven floor, two foot thick walls at every doorway, and rooms that ramble back farther than you would ever guess from the outside. For another, the blue-jeaned may mix freely with the formally attired in that wonderful New Mexican way that so annoys the Easterners among us. (Alibi Staff, October 4, 2012)

You can feel the love the moment you walk into this funky adobe structure (crafted from handmade bricks, formed from the dirt that the building sits on). Ben Michael's positive attitude makes his patrons feel like long-lost family by stepping out of the kitchen to play a tune on the piano, discuss the old family pictures on the wall or even escort an elderly customer out to her car. Just don't go if you're in a rush—all of his authentic New Mexican dishes are prepared from scratch. Try the homemade queso with toasted chips and one of his famous Margaritas to start. Then dive into the surprisingly low-priced combo plate with a chicken or beef taco, carne adovada, a cheese enchilada or chile relleno, and your choice of two sides (pinto beans, rice, calabacitas or papas). During the summer, the large front and the beautiful rear patio is open with the kiva fireplaces burning. A New Mexican experience. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

This warm and welcoming café occupies one of the oldest houses in Albuquerque, and now you can even drink on its fabulous patio! Look for it behind the San Felipe de Neri Church and don’t miss out on the posole with your choice of red or green chile. The Navajo taco is delicioso! We won’t tell anyone if you wolf down a few sopaipillas drenched in honey.

In the old (and beautifully renovated) Sunshine Market building on Mountain and 12th Street, Cocina Azul has the feel of a high-end coffee shop. The food is textbook New Mexican—the huevos rancheros, carne adovada enchiladas and tamales with buttery, sweet red chile are all tasty. For dessert, big servings of flan have sturdy, pleasing flesh and fabulous flavor. (Alibi Staff, September 16, 2010)

The ladies here make their own tortillas, rolling out perfect little discs of dough and heating them on the griddle until they become huge, puffy pillows ready to receive a heap of chile and runny-yolked egg. And they’ve been doing it the same way since 1961. Don’t be stupid. Go to Duran’s, and do not leave without ordering something involving a fresh flour tortilla, preferably in combination with the Best Red Chile in the city (according to past reader polls).

If it’s salt-of-the-earth, tried-and-true New Mexican favorites you’re after, hit Garcia’s. It’s about as authentic as you can get, from fiery green chile stew to belly-warming huevos rancheros, all served in a colorful, cozy dining room filled with locals.

Shopping in Old Town can be an exercise in restraint, but feel free to splurge on a snack at Golden Crown Panadería. Have a fat, fruit-stuffed empanada or a flaky lemon flauta. And if you want biscochitos, these are so good they were featured on the Food Network and in Gourmet magazine. Bread sculptures are baker Pratt Morales' specialty; he's known for his bread turkeys at Thanksgiving, but he can sculpt nearly anything from dough.

This Old Town favorite offers something to suit most appetites, from green chile cheese burgers to rock shrimp pappardelle, and it’s all served up in the adobe warmth of a 200-year-old hacienda. Don’t skip the drinks: Their tradicional margarita is the best in town. (Alibi Staff, April 14, 2011)

Navigating the labyrinthine alleyways that comprise Old Town should be rewarded duly with a fine lunch. Savor the soupe de poisson, follow it with a salade maison, then choose between a brunch, lunch or dinner menu complete with a quiche du jour. Skip the turquoise jewelry altogether and just go have the dessert crêpes aux fraises or poire belle-hélène. Regret will be a thing of the past with a dish of coupe glacée, and why regret anything in the first place? We don’t. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Little Anita's

2105 Mountain Road NW (Old Town)
Albuquerque NM
(505) 242-3102‎
Cuisine: New Mexican

2.07 rating (7 votes)
Little Anita's menu is New Mexican to the core, with enchiladas, burritos, carne adovada and stuffed sopaipillas. The red chile is generally milder than their green but is seasoned just right. Consistency, generous portions and fair prices make Little Anita's an Albuquerque mainstay—not to mention its many locations ranging from full-service dining to quick and easy take-out counters. The Old Town location offers the best of both worlds. Open for breakfast, lunch and dinner. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Little Red Hamburger Hut

1501 Mountain NW (Old Town)
Albuquerque NM
(505) 304-1819
Tue-Sat: 8:30am-8pm Closed Sunday & Monday (hours can change without notice)

4.63 rating (18 votes)
Little Red Hamburger Hut (née Wimpy’s) has the best burgers around. Called a "little red," a meaty, perfectly grilled all-beef patty is topped with lettuce, onion and thick, piquant red chile, then bundled in a billowy white bun. The bun soaks up the sauce and clings to the meat, bringing all the flavors together. Burgers are served either on a bun or tortilla and can be ordered small, medium or large. Combos with fries and a drink are priced from $4.95 to $8.95. Cheese and chile (in either color) never cost extra, and satisfaction is always guaranteed. Cash only! (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Meals Served: BreakfastLunchDinner

4 rating (14 votes)
Los Compadres used to be a humble, rambling building on Isleta, but has now moved into an old Village Inn on Central Avenue near the Bio Park. On the menu are all of your traditional New Mexican favorites (adovada, menudo, posole) plus a sizable list of real Mexican food, like tacos al pastor, desebrada burritos and bistec a la Mexicana. The chips and salsa are especially good. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Monica’s El Portal

Tue-Thu: 9am-8pm Fri 9 am-pm Sat 9am-8pm Sun: 9am-3pm Closed Monday (hours can change without notice)
Meals Served: BreakfastLunchDinner
Cuisine: New Mexican

3.5 rating (8 votes)
Across Rio Grande from Old Town, El Portal stands as a tiled monument to New Mexican food the tourists on the other side of the street don’t often get to experience. Monica’s been making everything on the spot—tortillas, chile, natillas, you name it—since she opened the place 33 years ago. The salsa doesn’t assume you’re some wimpy tourist: It’s chunky with fresh onions and a creeping heat that commands respect. The sopaipillas are some of the best in town and the red rocks. Or gorge yourself with burritos stuffed with green chile and chicharrónes. There’s a shaded patio, too. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

The red chile is gluten-free. Garlicky and earthy, jars of it are available in the restaurant, along with New Mexico Bosque honey infused with extra hot red chile. Try the juicy carne adovada or the cheesy enchiladas and eggs breakfast plate. (Alibi Staff, October 10, 2012)

New Mexico Tea Company

1131 Mountain NW (Old Town)
Albuquerque NM
(505) 962-2137

4.8 rating (6 votes)
If you’re used to soggy bags of Lipton, this place will be a rare and well-deserved treat. Proprietor David Edwards offers a broad range of loose-leaf and sachet teas, all imported and of excellent quality. Choose from exotic blends like Casablanca and masala chai to easily recognizable stuff like Earl Grey and English breakfast. And, yes, he even has those blooming flower teas. Ask about tastings and classes. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)
