Nothing evokes the mystery of Mexican cuisine more than mole, a sauce of complex flavors that usually includes toasted and ground spices, seeds, nuts, chocolate and chile. Many mole recipes contain more than thirty ingredients and some recipes have five varieties of chile alone. Chef Olea is delighted to share his moles that include his "New Mexican Mole" that he created to commemorate Santa Fe’s 400 year anniversary in 2009. The large mural in the main dining room, was painted and presented to Chef Olea by Federico Leon De La Vega, a well- known artist from Mexico City.

- MMalcolmNew Mexico •4 reviews5.0Dined on Jan 2, 2023The food was great, however, I didn't care for the crowded parking. The problem with mall parking is that there are now far too many other restaurants and shops that have been constructed on former empty parking spots to "revitalize" the deteriorating malls. So, what you have today is hard to find parking spots near the mall.More infoFogo de Chão - AlbuquerquePrice: Moderate• Brazilian• Albuquerque•4.1

Discover New Mexico
If Mexican-style cuisines were rated on a scale from Tex-Mex to truly authentic, New Mexican cooking would fall somewhere in the middle of that continuum. A style all its own, it relies heavily on two things: cheese and chiles. In this state, chiles and the sauces made from them come in both red and green varieties. While red chiles have a bit of a kick, be forewarned that green ones are hot, hot, hot! A beloved dish is the green chile cheeseburger, which brings the heat to an American classic. Cheese and chiles aren't just for dinner; in the morning, locals enjoy these favorite ingredients in hearty breakfast burritos.
