It was a late evening before my flight out of ABQ the next morning. The desk clerk at the hotel directed us to Yale Rd, which turned out to be the main commercial drag in the university area. Lots of choices for dinner, lots that looked pretty good. So from the outside this one looked like a pretty quick meal. Asian in New Mexico? Well, why not. What a good choice it turned out to be. Small plate apps and dinner sized stir fries served in the wok at the table. A very friendly and enthusiastic Indonesian waiter sat down next to me and explained the very large menu, which had choices from China, Vietnam, Thailand, Indonesia, Korea and Japan. We, the two of us, chose five apps, thinking of the normal sized apps we've had in virtually all Asian restaurants we've been to. Mistake. All we great, all were HUGE. Grilled tofu with pineapple and mango, a cooling contrast to our other choices was a full meal sized. Vietnamese shrimp and lettuce, more than ample. Roast pork spring rolls? Two, and each half fist sized. Chinese dumplings...maybe the best we've ever had anywhere. Fried shrimp spring rolls, amazing. All distinctively flavored. But three would have been enough. A large bottle of sririchi on each table. Each dish in the $8.00 to $11.00 range. And don't forget the delish frozen mohito in a large frosted glass. The decor is not much to look at, plain and simple, very much a student looking. environment. Oh yeah, after we were filled up to the top, our friendly waiter brought us a desert of fried coconut encrusted bananas on the house. Obviously, we'll be back.
