Do you live in Albuquerque, NM? Well I do!!! And I must say that growing up in Farmington, then moving to ABQ, then moving to Portland, OR for 6 years, it was nice to move back and have green chili at any restaurant I ate at. In Portland I definitely got to see many different kinds of food, especially amazing seafood. The problem was that I was already accustom to amazing New Mexican food that when I lived away, it was almost impossible to find.
One funny experience was one time being at a “Mexican” restaurant in Portland and getting served sopapillas. They served hot tortilla chips with cinnamon sprinkled on them and a little honey. Don’t get me wrong, they were good, but they were not the delicious sopas that you expect in New Mexico. Needless to say, I have had every kind of food around and New Mexican food is my favorite, nothing compares.
