It's my first time in New Mexico and I have to say I'm completely smitten. There's definitely some pretty serious magic in the air here. Not to mention in the food.
In Albuquerque, we stayed at the Hotel Andaluz. This historic gem, built in 1939, is in the heart of all the action of downtown. Recently remodeled to capture it's former glamour, it was the perfect place to put up our feet after a long stretch of highway. The next morning at local favorite Casa de Benevidez, we discovered that the best question in the world is 'Red or Green?'. The only correct answer is (of course) smothered with both. Especially when we're talking huevos rancheros. There's a whole chile culture in New Mexico and if you are a food lover I highly recommend a trip here dedicated to eating your way through it.
We're off to Santa Fe next to check out the art, the green-chile cheeseburgers and to do a little vintage shopping. Cheers!
