OUR DISHES HAND SELECTED

Matzoh Ball Stew

A Bernstein family tradition!

Years ago we used to call our Matzoh Ball a “big dumpling” because no one knew what a matzoh ball was. When we were growing up, matzoh balls were the benchmark of every Jewish cook’s abilities. Making light and fluffy matzoh balls (aka “floaters”) is a true art form. They generally have the predisposition to be “sinkers.” Years of eating and practicing has turned us into Matzoh Ball Mavens. PS – if you if want to give it a try on your own, you must use schmaltz – rendered chicken fat. There is NO substitute.

Just anytime I take my daughters out for a pleasant meal, Flying Star NEVER fails to deliver! 10 plus every time!

My friend took me out to eat here and I really enjoyed it--yum yum. Breakfast all day and great coffee--how can you go wrong? Also was a great work spot--a number of people were set up w/their laptops to get work done throughout the day.

I enjoyed my favorite breakfast EVER here today! I ordered the tofu scramble and was seriously blown away by how amazing it was! The savoriness and various textures made it melt in my mouth. I also ordered the blueberry tea which was incredible as well! Definitely a must-go.

ARTISAN CAKE FEATURE

Greek Yogurt Cheesecake

When we set about making a Greek Yogurt Cheesecake we were looking for a creamy, tangy, lighter, and fresher tasting cheesecake. Then we found out we had to first make Greek Yogurt Cheese. Well, it was worth it! We really got into its wonderful texture and flavor. It’s not difficult but it takes time and patience. Our Greek yogurt cheese is flavored with vanilla beans and it’s delicious with our homemade raspberry coulis (topping) and graham cracker cookie crust! Enjoy!

Friendly service for late night eating. We got there about 9:25 and they close at 10. The servers were very happy to see us even though their shift was almost over. The lady who busses the tables at the rio grande location is always friendly and nice. She always recognizes us and makes a point to say hello. Thx

Best place in Albuquerque to take a guest. The menu always has something for everyone, good service and the petio is a great place for visiting, even in the summer heat. And of course, the strawberry rhubarb pie.
Gil  Thanx Member since Nov 2015
Great food, great service! Highly recommend the ranchers melt. Mmmm mmmm good!

We have been to J T, Paseo-Wyoming and Menaul. The food at all has been good. I think as far as care and friendliness Menaul is the best. Now we just make it a point to go to Menaul
