Andy’s Pastor Taco Cart In San Miguel de Allende, Mexico

Andy’s taco cart in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico, isn’t just the best taco cart in San Miguel de Allende. It happens to be one of the best taco carts anywhere.

Pho? More Like Phojita Soup At OKO In San Miguel de Allende

Faux Pho at OKO I couldn’t believe it. My excitement mounted when I learned that we actually had a place that served pho (pronounced “fuh”, like rhyming with “duh”) in San Miguel de Allende. I made the trek out to OKO, thoughts of a comforting broth made of star anise, cinnamon, ginger, and clove swimming inside my head. Pho is God’s food, in case you didn’t know. As someone who used to eat pho on…

Cafe Oso Azul-Awesome Coffee And Breakfast In San Miguel de Allende

It looks like my old favorite for the best cup of coffee in San Miguel de Allende, El Cafe de la Mancha, now has competition. I discovered Cafe Oso Azul the other morning, and I was impressed.

I was so impressed with the coffee being served Cafe Oso Azul that I…

Ambiance-It’s What’s For Dinner First, of all, Pescau Restaurant is beautiful. I’ve often stopped outside of it and…

Food Around The World: The Best Foods To Travel For

Some people eat to live. Others live to eat. I travel to eat. And live to travel. I choose most of the places I travel based on the food. As a result, I’ve had some incredible food on my travels. Food that’s definitely worth buying a plane ticket (or even walking) for. But, of course, the easiest way to travel around the world is to go around the world on a cruise. Here’s some of the food around the world that I think is…

El Pato Mixiotes And Barbacoa

Mixiotes at El Pato If You Go To San Miguel de Allende, You Have To Go To El Pato! Now, I am a bit confused as to whether to label El Pato as a restaurant or street food. It’s feels more like street food because it’s THAT good. And you eat underneath a palapa (well, some people do. I move my table out into the sun.) Me with Cupcakes And Crablegs Blogger -Susan York There’s also no bathroom, so I’ll go with hole-in-the-…
