Albuquerque NM

Mon-Fri: 10am-3pm Closed Saturday &Sunday (hours can change without notice)
Meals Served: Lunch

3.88 rating (16 votes)
This place has such a warm atmosphere and excellent customer service you’ll prefer it to dining with your own family. Owner Rob Carson is as personable a guy as you’ll ever meet, and his sandwiches aren’t too shabby, either. Fresh bread, slow-roasted beef with au jus and Boar’s Head meats and cheeses give this sammich shop a rep for filling its customers up. The staff is an impeccably mannered bunch.

Albuquerque - Westside

11am to 8pm, everyday but Tuesday, when it’s closed. (hours can change without notice)
Cuisine: American, French

This is a keyhole sized French-American restaurant with a menu that changes on the daily. With that being said, the intimate setting and locally sourced artisan menu make a worthwhile destination, especially if they’re serving up green chile-spiked French onion soup. Stop by with flexible expectations and see what’s on the board. (Alibi Staff, April 17, 2014)

AmerAsia & Sumo Sushi

Dim sum and sushi under the same roof? It's like a dream come true. The beautiful interior of the antique filling station just east of the federal courthouse is a marked change from the cozy home interior of where AmerAsia used to reside near the University. Hyangami Yi's food is just as good as ever. Expect her familiar dim sum plates and buns, and feel free to order sushi like you've never had in this town from her brother Woo Youn. He's got all the usual sashimi and nigiri in his adjoining restaurant, but it's the original, creative rolls that really set Sumo apart—that, and the adorable little train that ferries your pickled ginger around the sushi bar.

2.58 rating (25 votes)
This little restaurant clings close to the heart of Downtown on Sixth Street and Silver, and the food is actually made by Cecilia herself in the kitchen. The tacos, burritos and enchiladas are traditional, tasty and pretty friggin’ cheap, too. The red chile packs a wallop, and Cecilia’s is even open on Sundays. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Farina Pizzeria and Wine Bar

510 Central Ave SE (Downtown)
Albuquerque NM

Meals Served: LunchDinner
Cuisine: Pizza, Fine Dining

4.28 rating (31 votes)
Across Edith from the Artichoke Café, Farina’s proximity to some of the most established fine dining in Albuquerque isn't an accident. Farina is the punked-up younger sibling of jazzy Artichoke Café, and it brings a tantalizingly direct message to the neighborhood: pizza, beer and wine, and all of it damn good. Sharp, concise and to the point, with 20 superb choices offered by the glass or bottle. Farina’s wine list is straightforward and focused. The bar is comfortable and every wine is perfectly matched to the kitchen’s chic pizzeria offerings. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

This ray of sunshine in Huning Highland serves gourmet breakfast and lunch made with local ingredients, sells housemade English muffins and has a mini-shop filled with goodies like honey, jams, mustards and vinegars, not to mention non-edibles like cook books, serving vessels and cards. The hot and cold sandwiches are dandy and come with twee sides of sliced bread-and-butter pickles and fruit salad. There’s also a large, shaded patio and incredible housemade cupcakes. Team this up with an espresso bar, wine service and “Sangria Saturdays,” and the power of triumvirate treats awaits you. Voted Best Brunch for 2013. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

This rooftop bar, the flirty sister of the fancier (and pricier) Lucia, offers a breezy patio, a menu of small plates and specialty cocktails for the Los Angeles-inclined Downtown crowd. The food is hit or miss, but the house-created cocktails—like the spicy-yet-refreshing cucumber-jalapeño margarita—make it well worth a visit. (Alibi Staff, October 10, 2012)

Modeled after a New York loft, Slate Street’s wine bar has an ultra-hip, modern, minimalist feel. This wine list is rhythmic, flowing and poetic, and it’s the most pleasurable to read and easiest to comprehend in Albuquerque. The wines are listed by style—“just a little sweet,” “ABC: Anything But Chardonnay” or “sexy, elegant, austere”—not varietal or region. Demystifying the label like this makes it easy for patrons to pair wine and food. The listings are simple, but not simplistic. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

3.23 rating (44 votes)
Forget everything you know about typical diners. Add class, upscale furnishings and a larger price tag, and then you’ll have the Standard Diner. They have oysters, fine wines and homemade desserts, and some interesting twists on ordinary fare like meatloaf and mac and cheese. The service is doting, the view of our beloved Huning Highland is representative and if you need a restaurant to take your boss to, try kissing his rings while downing a nice glass of Port. It might make it a little easier. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Sushi Hana

521 Central Ave NW (Downtown)
Albuquerque NM
(505) 842-8700
Mon-Fri: 11:30am-2:30pm, 4-9pm Sat: noon-9:30pm Closed Sunday (hours can change without notice)
Meals Served: LunchDinner

3.94 rating (10 votes)
Downtown’s circle of Asian restaurants widens with Sushi Hana, a straight-shooting sushi joint with some Korean influences (it’s from the former owner of Yen Ching). Small and boldly decked in red and black, you’ll find affordable, familiar rolls in a contemporary atmosphere. Great for a quick lunch or a half-price sushi happy-hour trip (served from 4:30 to 7:30 p.m. weekdays). (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Albuquerque - Fairgrounds

Café Da Lat

5615 Central Ave NE (Fairgrounds)
Albuquerque NM
(505) 266-5559
Mon-Sat: 10:30am-9pm Closed Sunday (hours can change without notice)
Meals Served: LunchDinner
Cuisine: Vietnamese, Asian

3.06 rating (65 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)

Chopstix

6001 Lomas NE (Fairgrounds)
Albuquerque NM
(505) 268-8777
www.chopstixabq.com
Tue-Thu, & Saturday 11am-8pm Fri-Sat: 11am-9pm closed Monday (hours can change without notice)
Meals Served: LunchDinner
Cuisine: Chinese

1.96 rating (28 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.

Albuquerque - Far Northeast Heights

Zorba's Fine Greek Cuisine

11225 Montgomery NE (Far Northeast Heights)
Albuquerque NM
323-2695
www.zorbasabq.com/HomePage....
Mon-Thu: 11am-9pm Fri: 11:am-10pm Sat: 12pm-10pm Closed Sundays (hours can change without notice)
Meals Served: LunchDinner
Nearby Theater: High Ridge (See Film Times)

2.77 rating (12 votes)
Gyros, souvlaki, taramosalata , roast chicken and potatoes, leg of lamb, lentil soup—the menu at Zorba’s rings familiar, and no wonder: The family behind Zorba’s is the same that opened the Olympia Café near UNM more than 35 years ago. But here, in the Far Northeast Heights, you’ll notice a long, expanded list of dishes, including more seafood and desserts, plus a lot of elbow room and a generous patio.

China Luck

7900-A1 San Pedro NE (Far Northeast Heights)
Albuquerque NM
(505) 822-0525
Mon-Fri: 11am-8:45pm Sat: 11:30am-8:45pm Sun: 11:30am-8pm (hours can change without notice)
Meals Served: LunchDinner
Cuisine: Chinese, Sushi

3.22 rating (9 votes)
There’s not a whole heck of a lot to eat this far north in the city, so Far Northeast Heights dwellers are happy this clean, reliable Chinese joint set up in their neck of the woods. Serene earth tones and tasteful lighting set the tone. On the table, sesame chicken displays perfectly fried breading that’s crisp without being greasy and is generously sauced with sweet and savory soy notes. Wash those heavier fried foods down with a light, crisp Chinese beer. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Jinja Bar & Bistro

8900 Holly NE (Far Northeast Heights)
Albuquerque NM
(505) 856-1413
jinjabistro.com
Mon-Fri: 11am-10pm Sat-Sun: 11:30am-10pm (hours can change without notice)
Meals Served: LunchDinner
Cuisine: Asian

3.33 rating (4 votes)
This Asian-American eatery has a reputation for retro Pacific Rim decor and the clink of drinks with little umbrellas in them. If you're in the mood for East-meets-West fare like lettuce wraps, quaking beef or Tokyo crispy tofu, then load up the Prius and take a drive down Paseo del Norte. You’ll also find a large selection of fine loose teas and more liquor than you can shake a limbo stick at. Have a yen for wine? Here it comes in white, red and plum. (Alibi Staff, October 10, 2012)

May Hong

9800 Montgomery NE (Far Northeast Heights)
Albuquerque NM
(505) 291-8958
Mon-Thu 10am-9pm Fri-Sat 10am-10pm Closed Sunday (hours can change without notice)
Meals Served: LunchDinner
Cuisine: Vietnamese, Asian

3.48 rating (44 votes)
Every time we go to May Hong we kick ourselves for not going there more often. This place is great! The papery skins of the Vietnamese egg rolls are always perfectly golden, and the cinnamony pork perfectly tender. The menu here is expansive, but you can hardly go wrong. Just close your eyes and drop your finger anywhere— bun bo hue (spicy beef soup), ginger mussels and goi chai (Vietnamese salad) are particularly good. Wash it all down with a jasmine limeade or jackfruit julius. Just don’t go on Sunday—it’s closed. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Mr. Tokyo Japanese Restaurant

11200 Montgomery NE (Far Northeast Heights)
Suite 44
Albuquerque NM
(505) 292-4728
Lunch: Mon-Sat: 11:30am-2:30pm Dinner: Mon-Sat: 5-9pm Closed Sunday (hours can change without notice)
Meals Served: LunchDinner
Cuisine: Japanese, Sushi, Asian

4.25 rating (12 votes)
Since we’re long past the point when sushi was considered too exotic for New Mexico, it’s time to start paying attention to other fine Japanese favorites like tempura, hibachi-grilled meats and seafood, teriyaki without the La Choy, and the beauty of udon noodles. Mr. Tokyo is modestly sized, moderately priced, and an excellent place for a quick, relaxing lunch or a quiet dinner with friends and family. They have mostly repeat customers because they’re just so darn good, and the owner’s pint-sized daughter, Shyana, will even wipe off half your table for you (give her a break, she’s still a shortie). (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Papa Nachos

7648 Louisiana NE (Far Northeast Heights)
Albuquerque NM
(505) 821-4900
www.papanachosfood.com
Tue-Sat: 11am-8pm Closed Sunday & Monday (hours can change without notice)
Meals Served: LunchDinner
Cuisine: New Mexican

3.39 rating (20 votes)
We're pretty sure if you take any food and stuff it with cheese, dip it in batter and deep-fry the sucker until it's crunchy and golden-brown, it's going to be good. But try the relleno at Papa Nachos—you’ll taste art. While you’re at it, try the unique green chile sauce (which happens to be excellent on turkey) or any of the burritos wrapped in fresh, tender tortillas. Closed Sunday and Monday. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Pelican’s Restaurant

Meals Served: Dinner

3.24 rating (20 votes)
Rough-hewn wood planks lead you into this nautically themed steak and seafood restaurant, which doesn’t start seating for dinner until 5 p.m. Luckily, happy hour begins at 4 p.m. Have a “Lady Godiva” hot cocktail and a baker's dozen of “topless” oysters in the bar while you wait. Then dive into creamy clam chowder, 10-ounce, butter-sweet Australian lobster tail and Ranchero center-cut top sirloin. There's plenty of key lime pie in the icebox and Phil Collins on the speakers.

Meals Served: LunchDinner
Cuisine: Chinese

3.71 rating (7 votes)
Reliability is something you should want in both a mate and a Chinese restaurant. Spend an hour or two appreciating a dependable partner who has a job, lives parent-free and pays bills, whilst at the same time admiring the availability of orange beef, Hong Kong chow mein and Szechwan shrimp.
