Savor the Southwest


Albuquerque’s natural beauty is reason enough for us at FOODWORKS to fall in love with the city. From painted skies to picturesque mountains and rolling trails to the grand Rio Grande, the vistas in this high desert city are something to behold. And they’re just the backdrop. As the epicenter of Southwestern life, Albuquerque is ripe for exploring Native American culture and history stretching back thousands of years. (Plus, it will forever have bragging rights as the city where “Breaking Bad” was filmed.)

 As for our favorite topic at FOODWORKS—food—it’s the proverbial icing on the cake in Albuquerque. There is truly nothing like New Mexican cuisine, an intertwining of Mexican, Native American and Spanish flavors that highlights native ingredients like blue corn, squash and those famous red and green chiles—and there’s no better place in which to experience it than Albuquerque. Traditional Southwestern eateries happily exist alongside trend-setting chef-driven restaurants. The city’s diverse ethnic makeup means you can enjoy everything from banh mi to Neapolitan-style pizza. And did you know the Rio Grande Valley is the nation’s oldest wine-making region? It’s enough to keep our FOODWORKS team excited about what’s lies ahead in Albuquerque, aside from those gorgeous mountains.
