A Sweet Filler
After my kite took a nose dive from 200 feet, the sunshine and the wind reminded me of my hunger. I left the vacant lot, surrounded by Sawmill’s new development and headed straight for the small food truck, graced with a fabulous pink lady graphic and two vecinas engaged in Sunday conversation. “You HAVE to try her food! You will love it” one lady says. “She makes a gooooood burro, big ones too, only four dollars.”
I’ll definitely have to try one of her burritos, but this day, it was sweets on the menu. Fine by me! I had the Waffle and the Cherry Chia Lemonade. It was delicious!
Kristina had been in the neighborhood for over 5 years, and seems happy about it, too. She operates her food truck, Conchita’s Creations for various events around town. The business is named after her grandmother, Conchita, and honors a collection of recipes left to Kristina by Conchita. Kristina takes pride in her local business and its association with other local farms and restaurants around Albuquerque.
I am proud to meet people like Kristina, here in my neighborhood.
