What to Eat in San Miguel de Allende

The cuisine in San Miguel de Allende is predominantly loyal to its Mexican roots, yet offers artisan and gourmet fare influenced by its expat and international community. Many locals grow their own produce making San Miguel's markets — like the vibrant Mercado Ignacio Ramirez — a worthwhile stop for insight into the city's food culture. The farm-to-table dining approach is a big part of San Miguel's growing foodie scene, which ranges from fine dining institutions like Donnie Masterson's international spot, The Restaurant, to the dozens of food trucks and carts serving tacos, tamales and more, at the popular "Taco Corner." Despite the wide range of dining atmospheres and international fare, some traditional Mexican dishes are not to be missed: Be sure to try the hearty enchiladas mineras (miners' enchiladas) and the pacholas guanajuatenses (fried beef fritters spiced with cinnamon and ancho chiles).
