New Mexico Food

The best food so far: Cafe Pasqual's in Santa Fe, today's lunch:
I had the Smoked Trout Hash which is decorated with cilantro. I ate every bite. Description from menu:
"Golden Gruy√®re Potato Cake with Two Poached Eggs, a Scatter of Smoked Trout and Tomatillo Salsa" 
Dessert: Rhubarb/Blackberry Pie. Absolutely wonderful place!
Also good: Church Street Cafe in Albuquerque Old Town, dinner a couple of days ago:

Posole with green salsa.
Chips, of course -- Church Street serves in a pretty traditional Mexican-style place.
Ok -- the shrimp tacos at St.Clair Bistro and Winery, selected because it's next to our motel:

Shrimp tacos and wine
My main dish at St.Clair Bistro last night wasn't a good choice: the mahi-mahi was overcooked and tough; moreover, the sweet salsa flavors fought with the green beans and mashed potatoes. But the tacos were pretty.

For our non-eating activities like nature walks and museums: go to  these posts on my travel blog.

Looks tasty. Did you go near pie town and have any pie. (NM -- I think an hour or so from Santa Fe but not sure which way). Saw a wonderful documentary about the Pie Lady of Pie Town!
