Cowboy burger at Thai Vegan in Albuquerque

Cowboy burger at Thai Vegan in Albuquerque
The last time I drove through Albuquerque, I tried the excellent vegetarian fare at An Hy Quan. This time, I stopped in at Thai Vegan and enjoyed the Cowboy burger.


Thai Vegan serves a lot of different vegan burgers. The cowboy burger is home-made wheat meat and it tastes exactly like a griddle-fried hamburger. It's juicy and has a nice char on it. It's delicious.



The cowboy burger is served along with avocado, lettuce, and tomato. A slice of vegan cheddar cheese tops it off. There were no green chiles in site which was a surprise since we're in New Mexico, but they added some green bell peppers for me.



I also had the coconut "chicken" soup. This was fairly spicy and really delicious. I loved it.

Last month in Albuquerque, I was on the trail of the green chile cheeseburger. This month, I'm looking for vegetarian, vegan, and whole plant options while I'm on the road. They're a little trickier to find than the usual places, but not impossible. And today I landed at a wonderful vegetarian place called Any Hy Quan.

Foot Long Chile Dog at Dog House Drive In in Albuquerque, New Mexico

I'm still on the Green Chile Cheeseburger trail in New Mexico. But I couldn't resist straying off the trail and trying out Dog House Drive In on old Route 66 in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

This isn't the same dark chili with beans sauce we would get back in California. This is red New Mexico chili sauce. It's thin and spicy, and it goes really well with the split grilled skinless beef hot dog. It's a real treat, and Dog House Drive-In is easy to find right on old Route 66 near old town Albuquerque. It's worth the stop! And check out the sign at at when the neon doggie wags his tail.

Mexican spiced latte freeze at Piñon Coffee House in Albuquerque

It was warm this afternoon in Albuquerque, and I can always use some coffee, so why not try a cool drink made with locally grown and roasted coffee beans? That's what I got at Piñon Coffee House when I ordered the Mexican spiced latte freeze. It's rich coffee blended with ice and chocolate then topped with whipped cream and more chocolate. Delicious and perfect on a warm day. It's not spicy hot, but it is spicy good.

There are a few locations in Albuquerque, as well as a gift shop at their roasting plant where you can pick up beans, K-cups, and swag. Find them at the Piñon Coffee House web site.

Chile Mocha Frappuccino at Starbucks

I'm in New Mexico on the Green Chile Cheeseburger Trail and I had a free reward to use at Starbucks, so naturally I picked the Chile Mocha Frappuccino. (There's also a Chile Mocha if you want a hot version.) This is cocoa, cinnamon and vanilla blended with coffee, milk and ice. Then it's topped with whipped cream, ancho and cayenne chile spices, and a lid :)

Wow! This is really good. Sort of sweet, sort of spicy, chilled, and blended perfectly. It's not as spicy as a Mexican hot chocolate, but it's pretty hot once you mix in the chile powder sitting on the top.

And since I got to use my free stars reward, the barista gave me an extra shot, too. Nice! This cooled me off and kept me going all afternoon.

The Starbucks Chile Mocha Frappuccino might not to be around forever, so check its availability at the Starbucks web site.

I'm in New Mexico on the Green Chile Cheeseburger Trail and I got a little sidetracked today. While there is indeed a green chile cheeseburger at Bob's Burgers (it's called the Ranchero Burger), I couldn't resist trying the tortilla burger (which also has green chiles, so it's like a burger except without the bun).
