time to blow the dust off abq_eats and post about three restaurants we checked out for lunch this week!
1: Port of Subs is on Central and Vassar, where Quiznos used to be (and where The Cup was long long ago). Good meats, terrible veggie selection. We split a cheesesteak, but since they didn't have bell peppers it was just roast beef and provalone and green chile. I'd say their quality is about on par with what Blimpies was. Sadly not a replacement for Quiznos.
2: Mint Tulip replaced 20 Carrots on Central next to the News Stand. All of the food is vegan, and I'm happy to say that vegan food has come a long way since the last time I tried it 10 or so years ago. I had a veggie burger which was very good despite being a frightening bright red color. My wife had a veggie sandwich which was also very good. Super pricey, though; each of our sandwiches were $9. So although the food was good, it's going to be more of a rare treat restaurant for us than a regular thing.
3: The Cube is on Central and Ash (?). They serve barbecue and gourmet hotdogs, but of which are delicious. I'm very happy to have found a gourmet hotdog restaurant since Top Dog died. I had a Chicago dog which was garnished with dill pickle, onion, ketchup, musturd, relish, and peppers. My wife had a pulled pork sandwich. Both were very very good, and the prices were reasonable. We will definitely be going back there soon.
