Merry Christmas to you all from Santa Fe, New Mexico! Isabel and I are here enjoying the Holidays with Isabel’s family.
Not many know but Isabel is from Española, New Mexico which is about 40 miles north of Santa Fe. Add to that, the Candelaria family first settled New Mexico in the 1690’s. In fact, a major road in Albuquerque bears the Candelaria name. So – Isabel and I love coming here for the culture and most of all, the food. We love New Mexican cuisine. Our favorite place to dine in Phoenix is Richardson’s or Dick’s Hideaway where we can get our authentic New Mexican cuisine fix.
