One of my first blog posts was about the Frontier Restaurant in Albuquerque (http://bit.ly/ef5S3P) because it is, bar none, one of my favorite places to eat in New Mexico. Consistently good food, kitschy atmosphere, and the best conversations of my life.
Yesterday a Quay County friend of mine said they’d been to the Frontier for the first time and loved it, but had no idea what to order – the menu is chock full of choices, and just how (other than the mandatory cinnamon roll) do you choose?
So as a public service to all you Frontier newbies out there, here’s my standard order (unless, of course, I choose the huevos rancheros, or the carne adovada burrito, or the burger. . .): medium green chile stew, western style hash browns (they come covered in melted cheese and green chile) and extra tortillas.
If you order this combination, you’re going to be happy and very, very full every time.
Find the Frontier at 2400 Central SE in Albuquerque and at www.frontierrestaurant.com. Right now I’d give my left arm for a bowl of that chile. . .
