Description: "4.5 stars", Aileen O'Catherine-About.com/ABQ "Eating is about more than the food. It's about taking in a culture,and at Street Food Asia, you get the chance to "wander" different streets in various parts of Asia,picking up a dish of fried rice here, steamed dumplings and pot stickers there. As someone not likely to ever make it to Asia, I appreciate the culinary tour. Plus, the food is delicious. The urban atmosphere makes this restaurant special. Close your eyes and use your ears and nose. You're on an Asian street. Street Food Asia in Albuquerque's Nob Hill stands out for a number of reasons. Their food is fresh, delicious, and seasoned as you like. Their urban atmosphere clamors and shakes and the smells from the kitchen tales of other worlds. The variety of foods and the inventive ways to combine them should keep any diner coming back for more."

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.

This was our second time at StreetFood Asia. Now our favorite for Asian food! Not fancy, but the food is wonderful. All the food is made on site. The spring rools are crisp and oh, so tasty. The Bangkok Chicken was tops! Wife had the softshell crap and couldn't stop eating!. The portions are very large so you can take it home to enjoy again. We heartily recommed this Taste of Singapore!

Not fancy by any means, this restaurant is all about the food and service - the waitress sat down next to me to explain the food any many options available - had the soft shelled crab and a lobster soup - a full lobster in the shell in a delicious soup - everything was so tasty and the staff was very friendly and great service

I have had many dinners in this fabulous restaurant. The service is almost always spectacular. The food never disappoints. The restaurant is loud and makes conversation a bit difficult. The food portions are so large it makes two meals. The flavors in the dishes are amazing. I would not go the safe route and try the pad Thai though...it was the only bland dish on the very extensive menu and you would be better off trying anything else.

We'd heard this place was very busy at lunch, so went around 1:00 when the crowds were less. It was great! We started with a couple cocktails - Seoul Peach, yummmm! We then decided on small plates and had a chicken spring roll, grilled shrimp lettuce roll, pork steamed dumplings and a small vegetable stir fry our waitress recommended. Our food was served quickly, was very attractive, and everything tasted great.
