        Jacaranda is now breakfast only on mondays.
        La Posadita isn't exactly on Aldema, but on the little street, Cuma De Allende, that's in between the center square and where Aldema starts. Prices there are around 45-55 for the basic entrees.

          Please take a look at my recent posting for Ristorante Da Andrea. I cannot say enough about this place. If you are in SMA and don't try it you will have missed a true dining experience. We also tried La Posadita and thoroughly enjoyed it. The served the freshest Margarita I had during my visit and the food was excellent too. I had the Cochinil Pibil (orange flavored pork) and it was very, very good.

      2. For great food, I'd recomment the Berlin Bar.
        I was blown away by the quality. The chef told us they started the restaurant in desperation to find good food in San Miguel.

        1. Hi

          My wife and I will be in San Miguel and Guanajuato during the week between Christmas and New Years. I appreciate the recs for San Miguel but are there any places in Guanajuato that we shouldn't miss?

            I am sad to report that you missed the Cervantino Fair and all that it entails. There are some recs for Guanajuato if you search... I would add a day trip to the Jalisco highlands could add to your culinary experience.... San Juan el Alto as some of the best food infrastructure up there... you could stop by in San Miguel el Alto for a real (undiscovered), picturesque colonial town.

              Thanks for the feedback. My in-laws just recently moved to San Miguel so this is out first visit. Thatnks for sigestion about San Miguel el Alto too. It sounds like just the type of place we would enjoy.

              Muchos gracias

                For a truly unique experience, check out a distant relatives restaurant there:


                You will find:

                > Chinese
                > Italian
                > Pizza
                > Hamburgers
                > Tex Mex
                > Classic Mex
                > Regional Mex

                All in a single diner for a truly transnational bi-transitional immigrant experience.

                BTW... the local Salmon (most often from the Presa de Cuarenta) is very nice & featured in local cuisine.

          2. I want the Chik en nuget`s por favor!

              The problem is they will be offended if I offer to edit their menu. Another thing, I'd be suprised if they have ever had a Non-Mexican in their restaurant.

                Thats the most charming menu offering I've seen in a while! Menu reading in Mexico is one of life's great pleasures!
