Currently in Albuquerque NM (Low 40 Sunny High 69)
We first want to mention how glad we are that we made the trip from Windsblow to Albuquerque on Sunday. We had 50 mph gusts on Thursday and Friday while we were in Windsblow. We had great traveling weather on our trip to Windsblow on Wednesday and to Albuquerque on Sunday. The weather changed again on Monday with 60 mph gusts on the Windsblow to Albuquerque route. This kicked up a dust storm and closed some roads along the Arizona-New Mexico border. We are glad to be here and hitting some of our foodie favorites like La Salita.
La Salita has been in business since 1965 and we know why, they serve great food. They typically finish first or second best for chile rellenos and for sopapillas each year. Here is Bob's plate from a recent visit for lunch, Jo had the same thing except her sides were refried beans and rice.
Later that evening the chile rellenos passed the ultimate test. Even though the batter was soggy, when crisp it is excellent, it was still good when we had leftovers. After lunch we had sopapillas, a deep fried pastry treat, a great dessert with honey.
Our tip is to bite one of the corners and then pour honey in and the swirl it around to distribute the honey. We haven't been there for a few years and the only change is now the sopapillas are 25 cents each instead of free but still a bargain because they are so good.
We will have more on our visit to Albuquerque in future postings.
Till next time,
Bob and Jo
