I'm not a person who eats out a lot, but when I do I want my dollars to be spent on something that I want and know I will enjoy. Albuquerque, NM has many good eateries. I am going to give my opinion on a few eateries in case you want to give them a try.
The restaurant that I consider first on my dining list is "CAFE TRANG". It is located on near Central Avenue and Louisiana Blvd. SE. They serve mostly Thai and Vietnamese food. It is a small establishment only holding about 121 people. The food they serve is always fresh and delicious. I like to eat low carb, so they've created a meal just for me with no noodles or rice. All you have to do is ask them to tailer a meal for you and they will be happy to do it. The service is good and they remember what you like to eat. We go there at least a few times a month. I highly recommend this restaurant. Its a great place to go on weekends because it's right near the Expo Fairgrounds. I give this restaurant 4 out of 5 stars
My second choice is "THE FLYING STAR" restaurant. It has several eateries through out the city. I've eaten at 3 so far. My favorite one is on Central Avenue. It has really great food and the desserts are to die for. I had a piece of strawberry charlotte there once and it inspired me so much I wanted to go home and make one of my own. It is conveniently located in Nob Hill so if you're out shopping you can drop in for a cup of Joe and some dessert. Treat yourself, you are worth it! I give this restaurant 4 out of 5 stars
My third choice is ANNAPURNA AND THE GREEN LIGHT BISTRO. It is located at 2201 Silver SE. I like their food, its very East Indian. They make a delicious lemon and ginger drink that I will get every time I eat there. They want you to read the menu, choose your dishes and then pay for the food and sit down. I do enjoy eating there and will go again in the near future. However, we have noticed a trend, they don't bring you your drinks and my hubby has had to ask more then once for them to bring his young coconut. There is no reason they can't do that first. Plus he's asked for extra salad dressing on the side. They give it to you in little ceramic cups that might hold an oz. or two. They have not wanted to do this if the dressing comes on the salad. Not very good PR. I give this restaurant 3 out of 5 stars.
My fourth choice is RASOI. Its an East Indian Eatery located at 110 Yale Blvd. SE in Albuquerque. I like East Indian food that isn't "too" spicy and this place fit the bill for me. They have a wonderful buffet which is laid out on a long table. Hovering on the table are huge suspended copper pots that contain the food offerings. My DH and I both enjoyed the food. They serve Naan which is really nice and crispy, assorted veggies and chicken dishes. Their tandoori chicken is smoked which is a nice change from the other EA restaurants I've eaten at. They had goat meat as one of the entres, but it wasn't my cup of tea, I found it too gamey. They top the meal off with the customary rice pudding which is always tasty. I'd give this restaurant 4 out of 5 stars.
