2860 Cerrillos Rd., Santa Fe, NM
This was another recommendation by a poster on Hungry Onion. I really wanted to try some Green Chile Stew during my brief pass through New Mexico but I just couldn't pass up the signature sandwich at this farm-to-table restaurant. It's called the New Mexican on the menu, green chile rubbed and smoked pulled pork served on a bun baked by Dr. Field Goods Bakery, Butcher Shop and Deli, about 50 paces away in the same shopping center, topped with sharp cheddar, green chile and apple jicama slaw, served with Field Good potatoes. After just one bite I began to regret I wasn't going to be staying around to sample a lot more of this menu. This was an excellent sandwich.
I also had the house made ginger ale - muddled ginger, fresh squeezed lemon juice, simple syrup and soda water. It was a bit on the sweet side for me.
I'm sure if I lived in Santa Fe, or visited often, I'd spend a lot of time here and at the companion shop just down the way.
Santa Fe bills itself as a very friendly city and I certainly experienced that here and at Plaza Cafe.
