Step back in time for old-fashioned diner food, jukebox oldies and an atmosphere with a New Mexican twist (incarnate in the hot-and-spicy Frito pie). The real stars in this place, though, are the awesome frozen desserts. They run the gamut from mammoth banana splits to $1.99 teeny-weeny hot fudge sundaes. The milkshakes come in almost any flavor combination you can think of and are some of the creamiest, most lip-smacking concoctions around. Voted Best Milkshakes every year since 2010.

The Brew makes a lasting mark with its comfortable seating, low-key, classy vibe and superior beverage menu. Our favorites include the butter coffee, the red chile mocha and the cortado—a drink like a concentrated latté. (Alibi Staff, November 21, 2013)

Café Da Lat

Mon-Sat: 10:30am-9pm Closed Sunday (hours can change without notice)
Meals Served: LunchDinner
Cuisine: Vietnamese, Asian

3.07 rating (68 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)

The New Mexico grass-fed Holy Cow burger comes on a brioche bun, while an ahi tuna sandwich, veggie club and dinner salads offer some more choices for bovine-averse diners. Beer and wine, plus shakes, malts and floats, are available to complete the sacrament. (Alibi Staff, September 1, 2011)

Meals Served: LunchDinner
Cuisine: Asian

3.77 rating (38 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)

Keva Juice

2451 San Mateo NE Suite A-4 (Midtown)
Albuquerque NM 87110
(505) 830-1318

4.4 rating (5 votes)
Keva Juice won Best Smoothies on our Readers’ Choice Restaurant Poll every time we ran the category. Despite its corporate veneer, the Keva Juice company is actually based out of New Mexico--and we agree, the product is awesome. It has a dizzying menu of enormous fruity milkshakes (or “smoothies,” to some), all blended up with fruit, frozen yogurt, juice and/or sherbet. And, in some cases, Oreos. Yum. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

O Ramen and Curry House

2114 Central Ave SE (University)
Albuquerque NM 87106
505-508-1897
Cuisine: Asian, Japanese

No Votes Yet!
This University area restaurant takes advantage of whatever natural law it is that makes college students and ramen noodles a perfect culinary pairing. The ramen bowls come in three basic broths: chicken, veggie and the iconic, milky tonkatsu, made from boiled pork bones. It’s delicious, bolstering stuff and offered at a great price. Also, check out the Japanese microbrews!

Rio Grande Tacos y Salsas

1411 Isleta SW (South Valley)
Albuquerque NM
(505) 877-3890
Mon-Sun: 8am-8pm (hours can change without notice)
Meals Served: BreakfastLunchDinner
Cuisine: Mexican

5 rating (2 votes)
Although “Salsa” is part of its name, the menu at Rio Grande Tacos y Salsas doesn’t once mention that word. Yet the salsa flows, starting with your welcome basket of chips and continuing throughout your meal with as many refills you ask for. The small restaurant, situated in a grocery mercado parking lot where Goff and Arenal meet Isleta, serves Mexican delicacies like trays of clean, bacony tripitas de leche and fajita-like platters of alambre. To drink, there are fresh-squeezed juices of every stripe, housemade horchata and hot champurrado. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Sakura Sushi

4200 Wyoming NE (Far Northeast Heights)
Suite C2
Albuquerque NM 87111
(505) 294-9696
Mon-Thu: 11am-9:30pm Fri-Sat: 11am-9:30pm Sun: noon-9pm (hours can change without notice)
Meals Served: LunchDinner
Cuisine: Sushi, Japanese, Thai, Asian

3.81 rating (21 votes)
Sakura Sushi serves fresh, generous sushi (duh), as well as dishes from Thailand and Laos out of a small strip mall on north Wyoming. But if you order one thing, make sure it’s the udon soup. One bowl is big enough for four people. Dip a spoon in and you’ll strike heaps of firm, dense noodles, caramelized meats and crisp-tender vegetables floating in a sweet-and-savory broth. The curries and “monkey ball” appetizers are among the menu’s other high notes. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Siam Café

5500 San Mateo NE (Northeast Heights)
Albuquerque NM 87109
(505) 883-7334
Mon-Wed: 12pm-9pm Thu: 9am-1:pm, 5pm-9pm Fri-Sat: 10am-9pm (hours can change without notice)
Meals Served: LunchDinner
Nearby Theater: Movies 8 (See Film Times)
Cuisine: Thai, Asian

4.67 rating (30 votes)
Siam curries are a splendid and lip-smacking affair that cling to every grain of rice like a slinky nightgown. Order anything involving tofu, peanuts, noodles or fried eggplant (which, now that we think about it, is pretty much the entire menu) and you’re guaranteed to walk out with a big smile. Order drunken noodles extra-hot and you’ll be dousing your head with the waitress’ pitcher of ice water ... and loving it! (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Street Food Market

2300 Central Ave SE (University)
Albuquerque NM 87106

Monday-Sunday 11am to 9pm (hours can change without notice)
Cuisine: Asian

The younger, smaller sister of Street Food Asia, Street Food Market embraces its lunch counter size and emphasizes quick and tasty noodle dishes. There’s hardly a need for a menu here: Choose meat (or veggies), type of noodles and curry, and you’ll be guzzling down a bowl of Asian deliciousness in about 10 minutes. (Alibi Staff, February 26, 2014)

StreetFood Asia

3422 Central Ave SE (Nob Hill)
Albuquerque NM 87106

Meals Served: LunchDinnerOpen Late
Nearby Theater: Guild Cinema (See Film Times)

4.06 rating (34 votes)
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 a long list of excellent sakes adds sparkle to your meal. (Alibi Staff, July 12, 2011)

Thai House

834 San Mateo Blvd SE (Southeast)
Albuquerque NM 87108
(505) 255-5930

Meals Served: LunchDinner

3.25 rating (12 votes)
Though the brightly lit, minimalist atmosphere leaves something to be desired, the mouthwatering dishes at Thai House (formerly Thai Ginger—same owners, same cook) have us drooling like Pavlov’s poodle. There’s a lunch buffet, but order off the menu, paying special attention to the noodle dishes (like drunken noodles) that are this restaurant’s specialty. Vegetarians will feel at home, too. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Viet Q Vietnamese Grill

6205 Montgomery Blvd NE (Northeast Heights)
Albuquerque NM
(505) 872-2311
10 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday through Saturday; 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. Sunday (hours can change without notice)
Meals Served: LunchDinner
Cuisine: Vietnamese, Asian

4.8 rating (5 votes)
Viet Q disproves the foodie rule that pretty Vietnamese restaurants are likely to disappoint. The dining room is smartly painted orange and gold, with slate floors that appear to crawl up the walls in places. An amuse-bouche of papaya salad keeps you company as you read the menu. The spicy “Viet Q special noodle soup” offers a tangle of noodles and beef slices in a hot, chile-red broth. There’s plenty for vegetarians, too. (Alibi Staff, September 16, 2010)

Yummi House

1404 Eubank NE (Northeast Heights)
Albuquerque NM 87112
(505) 272-8700
Nearby Theater: High Ridge (See Film Times)
Cuisine: Asian, Chinese, Korean

3.6 rating (20 votes)
With a name like this, is there any doubt what the dining future holds? It is truly the yummiest of houses with Korean and multiregional Chinese fare like Mongolian pork, oyster beef, almond chicken and green mussels in black bean sauce. Throw in some Mapo tofu and soybean paste noodles and there’s something for every taste. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)
