We haven’t been to Indian Pueblo Kitchen in ages. The new version is a beautiful place to enjoy farm to table Native American cuisine.
Located inside the Indian Pueblo Cultural Center, the Indian Pueblo Kitchen has it’s own entrance so you do not have to pay the admission price to the Cultural Center(10 for New Mexican residents or 12 for adults). Shown below is the side entrance of the Indian Pueblo Kitchen. This entrance was locked so you had to walk to the main entrance of the Indian Pueblo Cultural Center.
There were some helpful signage on the sidewalk to help you find your way from the parking lot to the front of the Indian Cultural Center.
The entrance is on the busy 12th street. It is also the entrance for the Pueblo Cultural Center.
A big plus to this menu was that breakfast is served all day. All day being 9am to 4pm except Monday when it is closed.
We were excited to see blue corn enchiladas(13) on the menu. I think this is the first restaurant that I ate blue corn years ago. They were delicious! The 3 blue corn tortillas were rolled and you had your choice of red or green chile. We had Christmas(red and green). Both chiles were equally delicious. Our enchildadas came with squash and corn mixture along with some pueblo beans. A small beautiful salad was included Wow! The plate was a total show stopper.
All this goodness was topped with cheese. You also had your choice of ground beef filling, chicken or vegetarian. I think the vegetarian was filled with scrumptious cheese that was very mild. Everything was nice and hot. The salad was as delicious as the photo. What an ideal lunch!
Our friend has the Tewa Taco(14) which had ground Native American beef, Pueblo beans, a house made fry bread. You could also choose between red or green chile with melted cheese on top with some lettuce, tomato, and onion to round out this picturesque dish.
We choose to eat outside on the stunning patio. It was warm out so we basically had the patio to ourselves. We made sure that we were in the shade and there was a slight breeze that was delightful.
The inside seating was just as wonderful as the outside seating. We had the added entertainment of some afternoon flies. Just so you know that eating outside has some extra added attractions or distractions as it were. Inside was also air conditioned. Outside there was shade and a breeze.
Our server was one of the best! Thank you! You made our day with your speedy service.
After having thoroughly enjoyed our lunch, we are planning our next visit. I am also wondering why we haven’t been back sooner.
