Cafe Dalat offers authentic Vietnamese cuisine in the part of town that has been named "
"The International District by the New Mexico State Senate. Innovation and variety are the order of the day here, as evidenced by the intriguing appetizers such as Lotus Stem Salad, Crispy Quail and Sugar Cane Shrimp. The truly adventurous can pair an entree of Curry Frog Leg, Crispy Cornish Hen or Caramel Catfish with an avocado, darian or jack fruit shake to drink. Those seeking something slightly less exotic have an ample selection of soups, noodles and fried rice dishes to choose from, and there are plenty of vegetarian options. - Pip Lustgarten
You will have no trouble locating the May Cafe: an enormous, axe-wielding lumberjack statue inexplicably dominates the roof (and indeed the skyline of the entire neighborhood). More conventional décor is to be found inside: a beautiful, tranquil water fountain greets you as you enter and paintings of Vietnam adorn the walls. There is ample seating yet plenty of privacy, as tables are generously spaced. Albuquerque is rich in Vietnamese cuisine and culture, and the May Cafe is renown as one of the top spots to participate. Their 220 menu items include plenty of options for the vegetarian in your party. So come along to have a ball!
El Parasol is the fast-er food sister establishment of El Paragua, which is generally recognized as the best Mexican restaurant in the city of Espanola. El Parasol serves affordable food that is excellent quality for the price; most customers swing by for something to go, but there are also a few seats available inside and out. Unusual for a Mexican restaurant, several vegetarian options are on the menu. Among the offerings for meat-lovers are the giant and delightfully messy tortilla burgers, and the Arroz Con Pollo: a thick stew of chicken and rice which you can also purchase cold by the quart to store in the fridge. - Pip Lustgarten
