Everybody has salsa in New Mexico. It’s in restaurants, sold by the pint or glass jar, and your neighbor’s mom makes it, too. La Esquina’s salsa stands out from the crowd because it just tastes so darn fresh—so fresh, you’d have trouble believing it’s not sold at a roadside stand. But owner Roy Venaglia makes it every morning, and he must be an all right guy because his staff has been working for him since the ’80s. Go for the salsa, stay for the flan, and don’t be frightened that it’s in the Galleria. Oh yeah—and happy hour rocks. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)
