Flying Star 2.4

Landmark restaurant approaches a quarter-century milestone with new dishes

Flying Star Café has become an old friend to many. It’s the kind of friend you hang out with all the time, even though you sometimes complain about him. The red stuff is too expensive, but you drink it anyway because it’s that good. The watery beans in the breakfast burrito may not be what gets you up in the morning. But just thinking about a tofu scramble with brown rice feels like a warm hug.

Carlos Condit talks food with the Alibi

The UFC title contender practically cuts a promo for Flying Star, and you better not screw up his red chile

UFC welterweight title contender and Albuquerque native Carlos Condit sat down with The Alibi this week, ahead of his title fight against UFC champion Georges St. Pierre on October 29th at UFC 137 in Las Vegas, Nevada.

A profile of Condit and fight preview will appear in the October 27th issue of the paper. Between now and then, be on the lookout for more outtakes from Condit’s interview to be posted here.

In this clip, Condit practically gets emotional when discussing the sacredness of a good red chile, and explains how his dad Brian Condit, a career electrician who never went to college, became Governor Bill Richardson’s chief of staff. His dad also makes the best red chile.

Meanwhile, the one who’s nickname is “The Natural Born Killer” admits to eating brown rice at Flying Star almost daily. He is a complex man.
