Crawdad & Chopsticks


I ended up having both lunch and dinner at Phở 79 yesterday. Dinner included a plate of crawdads in a delicious, spicy sauce. The “crayfish”, as the banner at Phở 79 reads, were so much better than the crawdads that we used to gather up from the puddles when the Rio Grande would dry up during the summer months when I was a kid. In my opinion, Phở 79 is the best Vietnamese restaurant in Albuquerque. They have great food and superb service at very reasonable prices. If you are in the Albuquerque area stop in for lunch or dinner. Phở 79 is on the north side of Candelaria just east of I-25.
