Fodor's Expert Review Tia Sophia's

$ The Plaza American

This Downtown joint serves strictly New Mexican breakfasts and lunches (open until 2 pm most days and 1 on Sundays). You're as likely to be seated next to a family from a remote village in the mountains as you are to a legislator or lobbyist from the nearby state capitol. Tia's ("Auntie's") delicious burritos stuffed with homemade chorizo disappear fast on Saturdays; get there early. Order anything and expect a true taste of local tradition, including perfectly flaky, light sopaipillas. Mammoth chile-smothered breakfast burritos will hold you over for hours on the powdery ski slopes during winter. Be warned, though: the red and green chiles are spicy and you're expected to understand this elemental fact of local cuisine. Alcohol is not served here.
