Wonder what San Miguel de Allende tastes like after a long pandemic? More mouth-watering than ever since restaurants have opened and some chefs have repositioned or switched to summer menus; sourcing from their favorite, local farms. And then there are your favorites; the ones we go to time and time again because we can’t get enough of their remarkable food and the thought they put behind every guest experience. We published a list of new and relocated restaurants back in May and since then, Royoko, an authentic Japanese restaurant by La Unica owner, Tito Martinez, at Hernandez Macias #82 with Chef Hiroshi Kawahito and San Francisco Steak House at San Francisco #11 have also opened. We’ve heard good reports on both. Hold your breath as more restaurants are scheduled to open their doors this year, putting San Miguel de Allende at the top of the list of places to eat in Mexico in 2021. From the standpoint of variety, the city is hard to beat. Savor a cross section of exciting, new dishes that have been recently added to the flavor profile of what’s available in San Miguel de Allende. In no particular order, here’s a list of some of our favorites to help get you started. Buen Provecho!
