I hope everyone is having a lovely week. Speaking of lovely, last Thursday I met my good friend for lunch at a very lovely spot, Café Lush. The weather was absolutely perfect and we ended up getting a great table outside. Café Lush is located in the heart of downtown Albuquerque, and there’s always lots of foot traffic and people outside enjoying their lunch hours before getting back to the grind. Café Lush has always been a favorite of mine, and this time around did not disappoint. With their local ingredients and attention to detail with every dish, Café Lush really is something special. I ordered the Quinoa Salad. Folks, let me tell you, this salad was absolutely delicious. If I wasn’t afraid of embarrassing my lunch date I probably would’ve started licking the plate. The tomatoes were incredibly fresh and flavorful, the feta cheese was creamy and rich and the grilled artichoke hearts had the perfect amount of spices. My friend ordered the Lushaladas (basically Café Lush’s version of enchiladas). She raved about them, and it’s not hard to understand why. They looked amazing. I may have to order them nex time in fact. No matter what you order at Café Lush, you will not be disappointed. The service is always fantastic and it has a wonderfully laidback vibe. Check them out, folks. You’ll be so happy you did.
