The distinct regional tastes of New Mexico have become a huge draw for foodies, thanks to the cultural fusion of Anglo, Native, Mexican and Spanish cuisines.

In recent years, the state has seen a profusion of upscale locavore restaurants reflecting new interest in the old traditions. But that doesn’t mean you should write off the old-timers, especially those outside traditional Southwestern tourist enclaves.

El Patio de Albuquerque, a longtime, unpretentious eatery near Albuquerque’s University of New Mexico campus, is one of the city’s most popular dining spots. For nearly four decades, multi-generational families, tourists, professors, students – even celebrities – have lined up outside this former house for robust but simple fare enlivened with plenty of locally grown Hatch chiles, like carne adovada and green chile enchiladas.
