You can tell a lot about a place by the stories its food tells. To be regarded as a food destination, you’ve really got to earn it. Something like that can take thousands of years of building heritage, tradition, and pride. It takes the type of love that you have to taste to believe.

Food is evidence of the soul of our ancestors. The fusion, mixing and adaptation of food is the promise of a future that celebrates difference and welcomes the opportunity to try something new.

Locals already know that Albuquerque has that secret sauce–it comes in red, green, or both, and it’s always spicy. We’ve really stepped up our food game in the last couple of decades, too. The beautiful melting pot that is the Duke City has some of the best food from around the world!

There’s no doubt that the restaurant industry (and the people who work in it) has been devastated by the pandemic. That’s why we at The Paper. have decided to take action and do our part to support our people and our heritage.
