Sample The Local Cuisine
New Mexican cuisine is hard to describe with words alone; it is something you have to experience. It is not Mexican food or Tex Mex. It is a blend of flavors from Spanish and Native American cultures that has been perfected over the course of 400 years. Sadies is a staple of Albuquerque but you can find authentic New Mexican food at Cervantes, Mary & Tito’s, El Patio, Garcia’s, El Pinto and more. Some standout dishes to try include breakfast burritos (check out where to find the best breakfast burritos here), carne adovada, green chile chicken enchiladas, chilles relleños and stuffed sopaipillas.
