Duran Central Pharmacy (or Duran’s, as the locals call it) is likely the only speakeasy where the decision to be made isn’t between whiskey or gin, but rather red or green chile. Hidden behind the magazine rack in an old-fashioned drug store, Albuquerque’s culinary darling is anchored by handmade flour tortillas that envelop tacos, burritos, and enchiladas, all finished with a generous ladle of your choice of chile. Though you’ll typically find it packed with downtown workers on their lunch break, it’s worth the stop in, and potential wait, no matter which part of town you are coming from. [$]
