Request for New Mexico style Sopapillas in Los Angeles

I know there's been some threads in the past on where to find sopapillas in the Los Angeles area and I just got back from Albuquerque NM and after eating some wonderful sopapillas there, wondering if there are any recent finds that serve New Mexico style sopapillas.

  1. Mmm, sopapillas! The only place in L.A. I have seen them on a menu is La Cabanita on the north end of Glendale/Montrose. But those were a disappointment in that they were not the fluffy New Mexican pillows I expected. It was like they fried a round pita-bread shaped piece of dough and then sliced it into triangles.

    1. I hope someone has a good answer for this. I sure do miss sopapillas with honey buttter and carne adovada and being asked the NM State Question: "red or green?" and knowing that "Christmas" is the perfect answer!

        Funny you mentioned "Christmas". When I order my meal with, of course, with extra sopapillas, the server asked me if I would like the red or green sauce and I told her make it "Christmas".
