Where to Eat in Santa Fe

7 April 2011 3,344 views 9 Comments

On this trip to Santa Fe, I didn’t have much of an appetite and felt nauseous most of the time due to altitude sickness, so I actually didn’t eat very much. However, some dishes and restaurant experiences did stand out.

Plato Mexicano at The Pink Adobe, a restaurant serving an interesting fusion of New Mexican and French food. One of my favorite questions they ask when you order New Mexican food is red? green? or Christmas? Christmas is what they call red and green salsa together.

Drinking chocolate at Kakawa. There are at least four chocolatiers in Santa Fe and they have recently banded together to market themselves as part of the “Santa Fe Chocolate Trail.” I just visited Kakawa though — and ordered lots of drinking chocolate to take back home.

This last photo was taken back in August 2008, when Rachel and I took a trip to New Mexico for a long weekend and went to the Santa Fe Opera. We loved the way the opera-goers picnicked in style, like these ladies.

    Oh no! I'm so sorry you were felled by altitude sickness in Santa Fe. I've had that and it is NOT FUN. The food everywhere we went in New Mexico was amazing, though I think Logan and I gained five pounds spending a week there! mmmm, sopapillas and fry tacos and green chile hamburgers and green chile pizza…

    And that chocolate trail is just too cool! Glad you brought some back. I wonder if it's good cold? here in Mexico they sometimes drink it that way. Might be nice in a hellfire and brimstone Austin summer?

    Yum! (excepting the altitude issues). Love Pasquals. Lived in Santa Fe for years. Most of my favorite old places have closed, but a few are still around.

    For next time: Total dive but phenomenal green chile at The Horesman's Haven (http://www.urbanspoon.com/r/27… Best burgers on the planet at Bobcat Bite (http://www.bobcatbite.com/); High Tea at the Hotel St. Francis (http://www.hotelstfrancis.com/… Many others. That place is food paradise.

    Oh yes, Rachel. Green chile cheeseburger post to come next! Also, great use of “hellfire and brimstone.” I'm loving keeping up with your travels!
