Little Anita’s New Mexican Food
2105 Mountain Road NW
Old Town Albuquerque, New Mexico

If you want to start an argument in Albuquerque, you can bring up politics, religion, or… which restaurant makes the best sopapillas. My Publisher’s vote goes to Little Anita’s – in part, perhaps, because of its patio with a view of the charming Old Town streets that lead to the church on the Plaza where her parents were married. And while a purist would decry the restaurant’s supposed use of – shock, horror – powdered red chile, the rest of us gringos find this an ideal place to fortify one’s self for a day wandering through Old Town, or to rest your weary paws afterwards.
