There is construction everywhere you look.
My trip to Querétaro was an eye-opener. There are not only many fine dining restaurants offering upscale Mexican food and also wonderful cafés, cafeterias, taquerias and street eats waiting to seduce the food lover.
Just take a look at how fresh this seafood is. The only other place I found seafood this fresh was at the Mercado de San Juan in Mexico City.
Mercado de la Cruz also happens to be one of my favorite markets in the Bajío region because just about everyone is eager to have their picture taken.
French born Laurent is a former Mechanical Engineer turned chef. With that broad path of engineering skills at hand, he immediately applied it to cooking with impressive results.
One morning, I observed them making pastry for Sucre Sale Delicatessen (Av. Universidad Oriente 42 in Centro Querétaro) and I was astonished at their technique. Why did making French pastry look so easy when I knew it wasn’t?
Their new pastry shop, La Maison Gourmande, at Felipe Luna 2 in Centro historico between 5 de Mayo y Santa Cruz Church, will be open in the next few weeks.
Laurent was sweet on the Waffle with strawberries and bacon as if he was suddenly transported back to France with a single bite.
A 7-course menu with new and interesting flavors. 5-star and totally worth the spend. You'll leave this place wondering what's on the menu next weekend. Make a reservation in advance.
NOTE: As of October, 2015, 5DMayo Experimental has a new chef. We have not eaten the food there since this posting done so we cannot recommend this restaurant until we go back.

There’s something in the Guacamole that makes this better than just about every other one I’ve tried…
LA CASA DE LOS CHEFS is in the Alamos section of town and an easy 20 minute walk to town. You’ll walk through green spaces with walking paths much of the way.
Many of you remember Ernesto from Red Tree House in Mexico City. So happy that he is one step closer to San Miguel.
Check out these Querétaro shops that carry products from Abrazos featuring San Miguel Designs by Patrice Wynn.
You may even want to buy something for yourself.
