You Can Sleep When You’re Dead

You Can Sleep When Your DeadI can’t remember where I took this photo. I’m thinking it was at Old Town Pizza in Old Town.

When I was a kid if I dare uttered the words, “I’m tired” … my Grandfather would tell me I was too young to be tired and that I would have time to sleep when I was dead.

Sweet Potato Fries

Sweet Potato FriesWe shared an appetizer order of Sweet Potato Fries at O’Niell’s in Nob Hill on New Years Eve.  The light colored dipping sauce is a cajun remoulade, which is deliciously spicy, and the dark sauce is an apple-cranberry, which is sweet and tart all at the same time.  And the fries are so delicious you don’t really need either.

Build Your Own Mimosa

Build Your Own MimosaNeed to go to O’Niell’s in Nob Hill and try their brunch. I bet it’s delicious.

We went to O’Niell’s on New Year’s Eve to ring in the Dublin New Year (5 PM MST) with High Desert Pipes and Drums. I had the Spicy Mac and Cheese and it was bar none the BEST Mac and Cheese I have ever had.

Gioco describes themselves as “a full service bar, wall to wall TV’s, and a high quality sound system. Our menu includes unique artisanal pizzas, pressed panini’s, fresh salads, and more! Enjoy top selling domestic and imported beers, extensive wine options, or our signature cocktails like the Lobo Margarita!”

Open Thanksgiving

Open ThanksgivingNot sure how I feel about this.  It’s nice to know that people who don’t celebrate Thanksgiving have a place to get something to eat. On the other hand what if the people who work there do celebrate and have to work instead of spending it with their families. 

Got Questions? … Kugel It!

Got Questions? ... Kugel It!I thought the sign was cute! 

Kugel is one of the items on Nosh’s menu and I would describe it as a noodle pudding.  I haven’t had the opportunity to try Nosh’s, as of yet, but am looking forward to trying it next time I am there. 

Cecilia’s Café

Cecilia's CaféI read that Cecilia’s had the best breakfast burrito in Albuquerque.  I ordered a breakfast burrito to go and while it was good and I did enjoy it, I would not have rated it the best.  Next time I have to go enjoy a meal at Cecilia’s and see if the eat-in meal lives up to being rated The Best.

Nosh Jewish Delicatessen & Bakery

Nosh Jewish Delicatessen & BakeryI was pleasantly surprised to actually find a place here in Albuquerque, Nosh Jewish Delicatessen & Bakery, selling a Delish Knish – A house made potato knish. I have to say they were amazing. A little different than the knishes that I am used to from NY. in that the covering was a flakey pastry.

I will definitely be going back to Nosh’s to try some of their other menu items like the Potato Latkes or maybe the Noodle Kugel. I have not had Noodle Kugel in 30 years.

According to Nosh’s website: If you can’t say something nice, say it in Yiddish!!  So, Hot a gutn tog!  (Have a Nice Day!)
