Umami, Ooh Daddy

Umami Moto finds new home in New Mexico

Umami Moto has a burrito and they have curry. There are sandwiches and stir fry, pot stickers and tots. The idea is to have a little bit of something for everyone. The twist is that all these things have an Asian street food angle to them.
If the theme is a party, then they’re very on theme.

Get Out There

It’s summer in Burque and myriad patios await your presence. Snap the kids out of their bought air-and-video game trance for an outing that culminates in the joyful consumption of healthful and delicious paletas—no, really!—or invite some colleagues and comrades out to smash the swanky local rooftop bar scene with you. If you’re looking for a more pastoral vibe, get your farm-to-table on in Albuquerque’s resplendent North Valley. Here are a handful of our favorite patios in The Duke City. Don’t neglect to slather on some sunscreen and install a rideshare app (such as Uber, Lyft or zTrip) on your smartphone ... in case you over-hydrate.
