Host to a labyrinth of cobbled streets, colorful colonial buildings, scenic mountainous regions and many hiking trails, San Miguel de Allende is among the prettiest of Mexico’s towns. Colorful processions, Mexican traditions and regular fiestas add to its appeal, as do an excellent array of award-winning restaurants and cafes. The following are highlights for your next dining expedition to the area.
A must-stop breakfast shop, which serves up everything from “chilaquiles con arrachera” to french toast and pastries, including freshly made juices. Local ingredients are used where possible, and it remains one of the most popular local restaurants in the area, especially for its authentic Mexican cuisine.
If you are on the outlook for Peruvian food in Mexico, look no further than La Parada. Dish presentation is as exquisite as can be, and the owners are young, hip and most importantly, trained chefs. Innovative twists on ceviche dishes are favorites amongst the regulars.
Featuring the likes of duck, pork and seafood dishes, prepared with local San Miguelense ingredients. Think farm-to-table cuisine in a fine dining setting without unnecessary pretensions. An international flavor is as constant here, as the ever-changing menu.
