Long one of North American travelers’ favorite tourism destinations in Mexico, San Miguel de Allende is also one of the country’s leading culinary hotspots, with cooks and chefs of all walks of life making the UNESCO World Heritage city their home.
Home to more than 63 nationalities and boasting more than 76 eateries — from 5-star restaurants to mom-and-pop cafes, some with generations of history — as well as interactive cooking classes with locals and international chefs, this Conde Nast Traveler “Best City in the World” has embraced its gastronomical inheritance with trend-setting movements and international festivals.
As San Miguel de Allende’s culinary scene continues to develop, new ideas are being implemented by its residents. In one of the latest trends, rooftop bars and restaurants are providing unique angles to the city’s panorama.
Another development? Dining and food emporiums. Mercado Centro San Miguel, which debuted in the city center this February, is a gourmet market with 27 vendors offering patrons one-of-a-kind culinary experiences. Open from 9 a.m. daily, the venue can host up to 200 people. For more information, visit www.mercado-centro.mx online.
Dôce 18 Concept House , which debuted in April, is also located in the center of the city and is divided into several areas housing artisans and craftspeople, flower and coffee vendors, a bookseller, eating and drinking venues, and more. Of particular interest to foodies, the complex’s Dining Room area houses the Jacinto 1930 restaurant by Chef Matteo Salas, an ode to the colonial heritage of Mexico, from its reconstructed 18th century edifice to its 20th century-inspired, maize-based menu. The Kitchen area, meanwhile, is home to food vendors such as Taco Lab, San Mike Pizza Gourmet and Birdie’s Burgers. For more, go to www.doce-18.com
