Santa Fe in a Day

3 STOPS | 1 MILE | 8 min

Santa Fe’s bounty of good food merits at least a week of eating … or two or three weeks, or more. But let’s say you have just one day and four meals to taste what is known as “The City Different.” You’ll want breakfast of huevos motulenos or corned beef hash at Pasqual’s and late morning sopaipillas or Frito pie lunch at the Plaza Cafe. Enjoy an afternoon pick-me-up from Roque’s Carnitas, a jolly food cart on The Plaza. Climax the eat-fest with a spectacular southwestern/cutting-edge dinner at stylish Santacafe.



Pasqual's is Santa Fe's favorite corner eatery, serving bright, modern versions of New Mexico classics. Corned beef hash is some of the best in the West.


Plaza Café

Santa Fe's oldest restaurant has a broad menu of diner fare, New Mexican food, and Greek specialties. Plaza's garlic-infused quesadilla is memorable.


Roque’s Carnitas

A Santa Fe, New Mexico, food truck, Roque's Carnitas wraps strips of char-cooked marinated beef with onions & chilies in broad wheat tortillas.
