Sugar's - Embudo, New Mexico
Wow, I can't believe it's been over 2.5 years since I last posted. Well, now it's time to get going again, although I'm afraid it's not going to be in chronological order. Anyhow, giddyup!
Sugar's came to my attention through www.roadfood.com
. I was on my way to NM so decided to give it a try. It's a completely out of the way place, on Highway 68 between Taos and Espanola.
One of their signature dishes is the brisket burrito. Brisket, green chile and cheese. For those of you unfamiliar with "New Mexico style" cuisine, most everything revolves around NM grown and roasted green chile.
So how was it, you ask? Disappointing...compared to my gold standard, the green chile burrito at J&S
in Montebello, CA, this wasn't even in the ballpark, not even the same sport. Honestly I really wanted to like this place, but the food just didn't measure up.
