Sopaipillas

I am looking for the best sopaipillas (spelling?). The puffy ones that you poke a hole in and fill with honey...not the dreadful flat, greasy ones I found in one place. Can anyone tell me where to find them in Albuquerque or Santa Fe?
It has been 40 years since we lived in New Mexico, and yet everytime we visit, I feel as though I am coming home. How can I be homesick for a place I only lived in for two years? It really is the Land of Enchantment.

Oh, I don't know, but the Navajo Fry bread in NM was just as good with butter and honey. Good luck on your quest. Nothing is better!

EVERYWHERE! Seriously, any good NM restuarant in both cities has the puffy, non-greasy ones you are talking about. Sadies, El Pinto, Little Anita's Garcia's.....

We just got back from a quick trip to Farmington [NM] where we had other things to attend to and came home with 2.5 bushel of fresh roasted green chile...do you miss the aroma of those roasting? I sure love that heavenly smell wafting towards you as they turn from green to charred, smoky delights.
I was SO happy to see them as recently flooding in Hatch threatened crop.

Every year when we visit Santa Fe, we have dinner at Castro's. The sopapillas are warm and puffy, not at all greasy. And, of course, everything they make with green chile is outstanding too.

Oh, this is a travel to get your sopaipilla thread. I thought it might be a sopaipilla recipe from your travels thread.

I had delicious puffy sopaipillas at Tomasita's in Santa Fe. They were served warm with honey butter...yum!

Blue Corn Cafe, Tomasita's, Castro's...heck, EVERY NM-style restaurant here has great Sopapilla's.

One word of advice: Skip ordering dessert and just ask for a couple extra baskets of Sopapilla's and honey!

Roberto's in Taos. They are lighter than air, and just superb. Problem is, Robertos keeps irregular hours. It's just off Kit Carson trail (1/2 block from the main N-S drag, 68?)

Lots of restaurants bring the sopaipillas WITH the main course, so they are cold by the time you tuck into them for dessert. So, when you order, specifically request that the sopaipillas be served AFTER the meal. That way you get fresh & hot pastry puffs, yummm.
