The Short Or­der

Pasatiempo - - RESTAURANT REVIEW -

A lo­cal fa­vorite since it opened in 1983, La Choza is the sis­ter restau­rant of an older, fa­mous down­town fix­ture, The Shed. Ei­ther place is a good bet if you have a par­tic­u­lar taste for hearty New Mex­ico dishes that fea­ture red chile. (Though they do good things with green too.) La Choza doesn’t get as much recog­ni­tion for its mar­gar­i­tas as some other Santa Fe restau­rants, but the ones we sam­pled were con­sis­tently good. Rec­om­mended: sil­ver coin mar­garita; Don de Oro mar­garita; stuffed sopaip­illa; com­bi­na­tion plate with chile rel­leno, pork ta­male, beef en­chi­lada, and mocha cake.
