Summertime in Paris

Whether you’re more familiar with the French Riviera or the French Quarter, there are plenty of places in Albuquerque to get a taste of authentic French cuisine. Read Hosho McCreesh’s review of Le Quiche Parisienne in this issue, and check out these other restaurants in the city that will cater to your wanderlust and make you feel, if only for the evening, that you’re dining in the City of Lights. Bon appetit, mes amis.

Annapurna’s World Vegetarian Café

2201 Silver Ave SE (University)
Albuquerque NM 87106
(505) 262-2424

Mon-Sat: 7am-9pm Sun: 9am-8pm (hours can change without notice)
Meals Served: BreakfastBrunchLunchDinner
Ayurvedic cuisine supposedly works with your body’s natural energies and constitution to create “soul” food that’s on a whole new plane. Winners of Best Vegetarian in our restaurant poll several years running, Annapurna’s food is satisfying but never heavy and, well, you just feel better after you eat there. Try Sunday brunch with spiced gluten-free, vegan pancakes and breakfast quinoa (but you’ll have to live without scrambled eggs, sorry). The shaded courtyard to the side of the restaurant is spectacular.

Look beyond the marketing gimmick of the poor, sweaty guy asphyxiating on the Central median, face concealed behind a sequined Mexican wrestling mask. Either chow down inside the colorful restaurant (try the fresh peanut salsa and horchata) or have items from its extensive menu delivered directly to your door. Sundays feature a spectacular display of tableside live mariachi music. (Be forewarned: If you know a little Spanish, your interactions with the staff will go much more smoothly.) Open ’til 11pm on Fridays and Saturdays!

Meals Served: LunchDinnerOpen Late
Nearby Theater: Guild Cinema (See Film Times)
In the front, it's a standard restaurant laid out with a small bar and big window facing the street. Travel a short way through a blacklit hall and enter the kind of divey neighborhood hangout this city needs more of, complete with TVs, a jukebox, a ping-pong table, air hockey and arcade games. Though the entire menu is available no matter where you choose to spend your time, you can't go wrong with the twisty-crust pizza.

A tried-and-true college sandwich shop, Cheba Hut is Albuquerque’s answer to a Which Wich or any number of grab-n-go deli situations. With fresh-baked bread, loaded sammies and plenty of vegetarian options, they definitely know how to cater to their crowd. They’re open ‘til midnight, too, so provide a great solution to those late-night munchies.

Cuisine: French
Oui, messieurs and mesdames, a good piece of quiche is the international language of love. Chez Axel serves Mediterranean-French cuisine, and the crêpes are très bons. Order them stuffed with salmon, tarragon sauce and cheese, or mushrooms, bacon and béchamel sauce. Have a leisurely lunch from 11am to 2pm or a relaxing dinner from 5 to 9pm. And don’t forget an orange marmalade and liqueur-covered plate of crêpes Suzette for dessert—you won’t be disappointed, so allez vous-en!

Tue-Sat: 7am-2pm (hours can change without notice)
Nearby Theater: SUB Theater (See Film Times)
An upstart contender in the crowded UNM coffee-shop scene, this small, well-appointed space is great for cramming before finals or scarfing down a quick breakfast before school or a salad and a sandwich for lunch. So far, the main drawback seems to be that its location—wedged between a laundromat and a piñata store—is just about impossible to find. Fortunately, a new sign helps solve that problem.

Mon-Sat: 8am-9pm Sun: 11am-9pm (hours can change without notice)
Meals Served: LunchDinner
Nearby Theater: Guild Cinema (See Film Times)
Cuisine: New Mexican
A can’t-miss New Mexican spot steeped in lived-in UNM area charm. There are amazing beans, potatoes and, of course, sopaipillas. And some really tasty green chile chicken enchiladas, all of which are complemented by a cerveza or a wine cocktail. And live guitar music. And a cool patio on which to take the evening air. If there’s Frito pie on the specials board, get it.

The Far North Valley setting is gorgeous, inside and out. (The spacious courtyard overlooks 10 acres of farm field.) The local and organic ingredients are meticulously sourced, and the food is reasonably priced for the level of quality you get. Several salad options and vegetarian entrées make it a perfect place to graze. For brunch, try their carne adovada with eggs. Don’t forget a refreshing dessert of house-made ice cream or a sorbet trio.

Frontier is an Albuquerque staple that most folks can agree on. Breakfast burritos, sweet rolls, huevos rancheros, green chile stew, shakes, fresh-squeezed orange juice—it’s all great. The ambience is strictly cafeteria plus plenty of interesting characters to talk to after a late-night study session.

This cozy little shop right off Central is a great place to come with your toddler in tow, as they have a kids playroom within earshot of the seating area. The owners are friendly as could be and make a point of stocking locally-made snacks and smoothies, as well as displaying local artists on their walls. They also have a few yoga classes every day and an extensive coffee menu to boot—what more could you ask for?

Jambo Cafe

Albuquerque NM 87112

Mon-Sat 5pm-9 pm (hours can change without notice)
Meals Served: DinnerOpen Late
Owner and chef Ahmed Obo was born on the island of Lamu off the coast of Kenya, among the culinary traditions of Africa, Arabia and India. His food reflects the Lamu style of culinary fusion. The ingredients he uses are primarily locally sourced meats and veggies, and are priced low for a restaurant dealing in clean, local food. We like the marinated tilapia, served with red chile-and-coconut-infused basmati rice, sautéed spinach, and a dried fruit and ginger chutney and—naturally—jerk chicken wings served in a pineapple curry dipping sauce.

Kai's Chinese Restaurant

Meals Served: LunchDinner
Nearby Theater: Guild Cinema (See Film Times)
Cuisine: Chinese
So many reasons why we love Kai’s: It’s cheap even by cheapskate standards. The service is friendly, and the food comes out in a flash. It’s close to the University, and there’s parking in the back. If you’re bored, you can either look at the pictures of kung fu heroes all over the walls or check out the action in the open kitchen. If you’ve got $10 and an empty stomach, Kai’s will take care of you.

The Last Call is one of the best late-night eateries in town. They consistently have excellent food with plenty of vegetarian options. Beat the midnight crowd and go early for dinner, or even earlier now that they’re open for lunch. In other words, nothing is standing between you and a taste of heaven. The Cali burrito with veggies is perfection, but we highly recommend the fish tacos and truffle grilled cheese, too.

Meals Served: LunchDinner
Where Mazaya really excels is in creating a wide variety of mouthwatering and intriguing flavors that keep you reaching for just one more bite. Take a study break with a bowl of creamy hummus. Go for dinner with your friends and try a savory kefta wrap or a platter of momo dumplings with a Nepalese masala dipping sauce.

Meals Served: LunchDinner
Nearby Theater: SUB Theater (See Film Times)
Cuisine: Asian, Japanese
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!

Late-night UNM goers, you now have another option for the midnight munchies. The Pita Pit, an Ontario-based chain, has a mix-and-match pita sandwich menu and a modest but colorful dining room. To top it off, it’s open until 3am. Greek, American and Middle Eastern options abound in meaty pocket sammies—wipe the drool off your textbook and refuel!

Pick your size, ingredients, spice level and add-ons for a tasty poke bowl. Choices range from ahi to shrimp, salmon and even octopus. Very friendly, helpful staff. We recommend the Latin bowl.

Meals Served: BreakfastLunchDinner
Nearby Theater: Movies 8 (See Film Times)
Do not leave the Range without ordering something involving bacon and queso, even if it means you have to get side dishes of them both. These people serve thick, meaty bacon and obviously understand the power of the dreamy, cheesy goop we call queso to transform simple breakfast items from ho-hum to hot damn! They’ve even rescued the humble bowl of oatmeal from perpetual breakfast boredom by parking a scoop of their fabulous housemade cinnamon ice cream on top of it. Don’t forget to take home a fabulous housemade tarte Tatin from the pastry case.

Meals Served: LunchDinnerOpen Late
Nearby Theater: Guild Cinema (See Film Times)
Saggios serves up some of the biggest slices in town. Dotted with fat slices of sausage and loads of gooey cheese, it’s one of our top ’za destinations. The crust is moderately thin, but the edges are puffed and crunchy, just like we like ’em. Even though it can be loud, the trompe l’oeil murals are even louder—dine in until 10pm on weeknights and 11pm on weekends. Don’t forget the espresso and cannoli!

Sahara’s menu is straightforward, listing expected meats and purées and several vegetarian dishes. Meats come either in a sandwich or combo platter, which are loaded with enough sides to appease the most voracious appetites. The falafel totally rocks the casbah, as do the chicken dishes, the velvety hummus and the beautifully composed salads. Don’t forget to get a nice, hot cup of spice-infused tea.
