At a press conference in Mexico City Laura Torres-Septién Torres, president of the Tourism Council of San Miguel de Allende explained that given the culinary offer of the so-called “Heart of Mexico”, a series of especially prepared gastronomic experiences will be held at this destination in the coming months.

“When walking through the cobble stone streets full of history and culture, thousands of foodies look for gastronomic hot spots ranging from refined gastronomic delicacies at Moxi, Áperi, 1826, Andanza, Fatima 7 Rooftop, Bovine, Zibu San Miguel, Nomad or The Restaurant; to street tacos that are unique to this part of the country.”

“Even a delicious piece of sweet bread in Panio, or one the typical desserts of San Miguel de Allende such as “Tumbagones“. Delicious sunbeds that can be washed down with a good coffee, or maybe just an ice cream cone. Of course there is raspberry jam and caramel candy (cajeta), iconic ingredient from the neighboring town of Celaya, along with many other local proposals, ” she recalled.

One-of-a-kind Culinary Offer

In this context, it should be noted that in just a few years the culinary offer in San Miguel has exploded.

And since the arrival of Chef Donnie Masterton, who opened the doors of The Restaurant with the first fine dining option in the city, the list of openings started growing exponentially, providing visitors with a wide variety of options for all tastes and budgets.

And in this sense, the local commerce of farms, cheese producers, horticulturists and artisans, grows day by day incorporating their products to the recipes that are cooked daily in the SanMiguelenses’ stoves.

The SMA Tourist Council invites all visitors to upload their photographs while enjoying these “culinary” moments. And in December the winner will be appointed and given as a prize: Accommodation for 2 people in SMA with dinner and their picture will be for 1 month the main image for this campaign.
