I've been trying to upload some pictures from our vacation in Santa Fe, but for some reason it's not working. So instead, I'll tell you about some of the places we ate!!
On our way to Santa Fe, we stopped in a little town named Madrid
. Apparently it is now most famous for the fact that the movie Wild Hogs
was filmed there. We had lunch at a the Mine Shaft Tavern
, which says it has the "longest stand-up bar in New Mexico."
In Santa Fe, we were of course looking for true 'New Mexico' type of food. We were told that the locals go to a place named Maria's
, so we went there for our first lunch in Santa Fe. It boasts over 125 kinds of Margaritas, and over 100 different types of tequila by the glass. The restaurant has been there since 1950, and they have published a book
about "great margaritas." I had some awesome enchiladas, and Dave had a dish called Carne Adovada
, which he loved.
Another great place for New Mexican food is Tomasita's
. It is one of those places where you have to go and WAIT for a table. The service was great, and the"chile" was HOT. (The sauce that is put on top of your food is called "chile." You can get it at all of the places either red
, or my favorite, a combination of the two, which you order as "Christmas
We had breakfast at Tia Sophia's
, which is best known for its Huevos Rancheros
. Dave and I decided that they weren't the best
Huevos Rancheros we had ever had, but they were
I think I ate enough "New Mexican" food to last me a L-O-N-G time!! I kept telling Dave that I was NOT going to eat Mexican food ever again! (We'll see how long that proclamation lasts!) :)
