Monday, Gov. Susana Martinez unveiled the New Mexico True Breakfast Burrito Byway’s Top 50 burritos that earned a spot on the map.
Two Los Alamos restuarants earned a place on the list: Violas and Chile Works, both located on Trinity Drive.
“New Mexico’s delicious, unique, authentic cuisine is one of the many things that draw visitors to our state,” Martinez said. “The New Mexico True Breakfast Burrito Byway is a fun and exciting way to highlight our incredible cuisine, promote tourism and help bring even more dollars to New Mexico restaurants.”
For a restaurant’s breakfast burrito to qualify, burritos must have contained egg, tortilla and authentic New Mexico chile. The restaurant also had to have a business license, as well as a brick-and-mortar location.
The competition began back in April, when 400 restaurants either nominated by customers or self-nominated vied for a spot on the list. The restaurants were then voted for by the public to narrow the list down to the final 50.
