|This is the first place I ever stayed in Mexico almost twenty years ago. I'm delighted it's still where I left it! The hotel rooms surround the delightful central dining courtyard.|
|95 pesos is 5.71 US|
My trip to San Miguel de Allende was, as usual, one of culinary bliss. Every restaurant was a feast for the eyes as well as the stomach.
Because buildings have their facades close to the road while the interior courtyard contains the restaurant proper, there are often fountains, greenery and natural light to delight.
You will want to eat slowly to savor each bite. When having breakfast, be sure to order the orange juice which will be freshly squeezed--none of that reconstituted stuff in Mexico. And, as I mentioned before, you can indulge without fearing the bill, so go ahead and order an extra appetizer or have a dessert, or two!
|I bet you'll take photos of your meals, too!|
|My friends and I ate here my first night in town. Musicians played on the stage at the right.|
|Oso Azul is a delightful place for breakfast.|
|Even the simplest cafes will have items that charm the eye.|
|Ready for lunch!|
While I would urge caution when eating "street food" (As a general rule, it's okay to eat anything that is freshly prepared while you watch, but do not eat anything that's been sitting around for a while.), do not worry about drinking the water or eating produce in any restaurant. Since Mexicans are just as prone to dysentery as visitors are, the restaurant would not remain in business if it were were careless about hygiene.
un vaso de agua pura por favor. If you'd also like ice with your drink, say, con hielo. (pronounced con YEAH lo)
|My fixed price lunch of soup, pork chops, rice, beans, butter and bread, tres leches cake for dessert, and a delicious watermelon drink to wash it all down cost the equivalent of $7.82.|
