Campo at Los Poblanos, Albuquerque

This was probably my second best meal of the whole year!  Campo is the restaurant at Los Poblanos, an inn that offers a farm experience on a historic property.  We all thought the food was exceptional!  It was unfussy food with an imaginative take.  Many of the dishes feature local produce such as blue corn, prickly pear, hatch chiles and more.  They are part of a project to help preserve blue corn as an heirloom crop.  I could eat here every day!

The location is charming.  The restaurant is in a rustic building with beautiful lighting and decor.  We arrived at night and couldn't see the farm.  We were so intrigued, we came back the next day to look at the lavender fields, visit the farm store and see the alpacas.  We also saw two sandhill cranes prancing around in the fields.

This honeycake was amazing!  Very light and creamy

Yes, I put dessert first!
