San Miguel de Allende, which has some of Mexico’s most beautiful scenery, is a bustling center for culture and the arts. This vibrant city, which offers a variety of activities for fans of history and culture, is a great place to try some unforgettable culinary treats. Here is our most recent list of the top best restaurants in San Miguel de Allende.
De Temporada Farm Restaurant
De Temporada, one of the top 16 farm restaurants in the world, is a must-visit for anyone who practices sustainable consumption and healthy eating. Since “the discovery of a new dish accomplishes more for the human race than the finding of a star,” this restaurant, which received TripAdvisor’s Certificate of Excellence in 2014, makes a point of employing local foods as much as possible. Along with vegetarian selections, the menu also includes De Temporada’s renowned handcrafted ice cream and vanilla bean panna cotta.
Berlin Bar & Bistro
Berlin Bar & Bistro, which won the 2014 TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence, seeks to “surprise and thrill you with an enriched and unique culinary, social, and cultural experience.” With such a presentation, it is obvious that this art-loving cafe is a pleasure for everyone who wants to give their dining experience in San Miguel de Allende a cultural touch. You can tell Berlin Bar & Bistro supports the neighborhood art scene the moment you walk in since Peter Leventhal, a well-known local artist, has painted on the interior walls. The bistro not only maintains a dedication to the arts but also frequently hosts art exhibitions.
Ki’bok Coffee: Best Restaurants In San Miguel De Allende
There’s no doubt that Ki’bok is one of the most well-known spots in San Miguel de Allende to go for good coffee and a wonderful Sunday brunch. National Geographic called this coffee shop “a little cafe that serves some of the best coffee in the world.”
Along with classic Mexican fares like enchiladas and sopa azteca, Ki’bok Coffee also serves a few international cuisines including pasta, hummus, and focaccia sandwiches. Below is a photo of my mouthwatering plate of chilaquiles Verdes, a Mexican morning meal made of tortillas that have been lightly cooked and topped with salsa, pulled chicken, queso fresco, crema, onions, and avocado.
Luna Rooftop Tapas Bar
A chic area with breathtaking views of San Miguel can be found on the rooftop of the lovely Rosewood Hotel. Though the area is pleasant to visit at any time of day, twilight is the greatest time to go since the setting sun highlights the quilted pattern of the adobe buildings below. The menu features fusion Mexican-Asian dishes and inventive drinks like mezcal mixed with cucumber juice and chili powder.
San Miguel’s premium and exclusive dining venues are measured against Moxi. Enrique Olvera, one of Mexico’s most well enough and famous chefs, runs this TripAdvisor Award of Excellence recipient restaurant, which “draws inspiration from Mexico’s rich tradition of markets, street food, and residence meals.” Shrimp burgers, lump crab salad, roasted lamb, rib roasts with mole, and chocolate crème brûlée are some of the seasonal specialties on the menu. The posh Hotel Matilda’s Moxi restaurant features a substantial art collection in its dining area.
La Azotea, which is perched atop what was once Ignacio José de Allende y Unzaga’s stable, offers views of three significant churches: the pink castle of La Parroquia to the east, San Francisco to the north, and the golden dome of Las Monjas to the west. The restaurant’s trademark tacos, chipotle-glazed shrimp, and fried leek ribbons over a jicama “tortilla” are just a few of the noteworthy menu items.
One of the greatest spots in town to enjoy a hearty breakfast and the full Mexican experience is Muro Café. This modest café was the recipient of TripAdvisor’s Certificate of Excellence in 2014 thanks to a reputation that emphasizes the excellence of its service and cozy atmosphere. Given that breakfast is the primary focus of the menu, there are many options available for the first meal of the day, including pastries, burritos, oatmeal with fruit, French toast, and a variety of egg-based dishes like huevos a la Mexicana (eggs prepared in the Mexican style with onion, green pepper, and tomato).
Via Organica AC
Via Organica AC is a non-profit organization that aims to promote organic farming, fair trade, and a healthy lifestyle with complete respect for the capacities of the Earth. The name of the organization suggests what it has to offer. One of the most well-known restaurants with an organic theme in Mexico is Via Organica AC, which only serves foods made from organic ingredients, along with organic wines and home-brewed beer. The organization also organizes educational activities, hosts performances of “organic theatre” by regional artists, and gives farm excursions to the more inquisitive guests.
Tacos San Francisco
Tacos San Francisco is the greatest restaurant to go to if you’re looking for the tastiest street tacos in San Miguel de Allende. Only in the evenings does the street food truck Tacos San Francisco run. A queue will begin to form as they are preparing for the night before they even open. People are drawn out of their houses and around corners by the aroma of grilled and roasting meat and queue up to wait patiently for delectable tacos al pastor or barbacoa, among other dishes.
There is nothing spectacular about this restaurant; you eat tacos while standing up on a plastic plate while adding salsa and lime wedges. In addition to tacos, Tacos San Francisco offers soda and water in bottles for sale from a sidewalk cooler.
