I bought tamale at a street vendor who was stationed at the corner of little plaza in front of Church of San Francisco. I just caught them before they packed up and go. Salsa verde was my choice. I bought it on another day to take it home to turn it into a light lunch.

A friend of us who know the town told us that Venus has an excellent desert and a flamenco style guitarist on Friday nights. So, we went. Yes, I ate all of above. Rolo was the best. The music was enjoyable and the musician came to talk to us after he played. Oh, and he lives in Canada and he is a Russian.

We went to this tiny lovely cafe inside a spa. They had only 1 kind of salad and 1 kind of sandwich for a day, but they were fresh and very good. I love jicama in a salad.

Via Organica

Via Organica is the organic cafe/grocery in town. They are also a hub for organic education. They also brew their own beer, which is tasty. Using fresh organic produces and simply prepared dishes are wonderful. We went back there many times in this 2 week stay in San Miguel de Allende. My favorite Mexican dish, Chili Relleno and a big glass of lemonade, I’m happy.
