With COVID-19 continuing to push some restaurants to limit onsite dining, enjoying a meal away from annoying roommates, needy pets, or messy home offices/dining rooms can be difficult. Fortunately, many of Albuquerue’s most popular breweries offer a happy alternative. Plenty of outdoor seating means limited need to interact with staff, and safeguards are in place to make sure tables are sanitized between visitors. And if seating isn’t available or is all filled up, it’s easy to take your meal to a nearby park to enjoy. Here is our take on can’t-miss food cart spots in Albuquerque.
Ex Novo Brewing Company
Ex Novo Brewing Company offers a large outdoor seating area and plays host to a rotating cast of food trucks, including Big Boss Hot Links, Nom Nom on Wheels, The Lunch Box, Stuffed Lust, Tikka Spice, and ABQ Grill’N’Q. While not technically in Albuquerque, this not-for-profit microbrewery in Corrales is only a 14-minute drive from Olympus Northpoint.
High and Dry Brewing
This local brewery in the Highland neighborhood offers an eclectic mix of beers, including a New England-style IPA and a refreshing, low-alcohol gose. Their brewery features a sizable outdoor patio. And with 25% of its indoor seating available for use too, High and Dry Brewing is a great place to enjoy dinner and a craft brew. Like Ex Novo, their cart lineup changes each day and includes such options as Franky’s Burgers 505, Umami Moto, Nom Nom on Wheels, The Munchie Truck, and Punchy’z.
Bow & Arrow Brewing Co.
Woman-owned and founded, Bow & Arrow Brewing Co. in Albuquerque’s Wells Park neighborhood offers a delicious mix of brews to choose from, including IPAs, sours, pilsners, and lagers. Like the other breweries on this list, Bow & Arrow plays host to a rotating cast of food truck options. On any given day, you can find options like Greengos, Moto, Franky’s Burgers 505, and Vegos. Visit their website for what’s there on which days.
Hopefully this list gets you out of the house and satiated. For more tips on getting the best out of Albuquerque, visit the Olympus Northpoint blog.
