Tilapia is a cichlid, like those big oscar fish you see in pet shops, not a catfish. All farm raised freshwater fish pretty much taste like mud though.

Road trip in New Mexico - Where must we eat?

In ABQ you can't beat the Frontier for cheap and good. It's on Central, right across the street from UNM. Their posole, green chile stew, and carne adovada are all pretty good as are their fresh made tortillas and cinnamon rolls. Try the huevos rancheros with green chile stew.

If you like hot dogs, try the Dog House, also on Central. Their chili dogs are great and very unusual for the area.

Oh, and the correct answer to "red or green?" is green (except at the Dog House).
