As the name suggests, you'll have to walk past aisles of aspirin, toothpaste and magazines before you find the good eats at Duran. The action is at a small lunch counter off to the left from the main entrance. This is where a crew of crusty regulars—and intrepid visitors—gather for breakfast, with a big plate of huevos rancheros, or for lunch, when bowls of stew studded with spicy green chile are the standard order. The atmosphere is fluorescent-lit and no-nonsense, but this is some of the finest traditional New Mexican food you'll find in the city. The place takes cash only.
