|The other day I took the girls back to that cool open air market, Mercado Centro San Miguel. After some fine gelato, we decided to get a pizza, and the ladies were totally fascinated by the from-scratch method of the pizza maker. Check out his cool little oven! I have to say, that pizza was REALLY GOOD. We took it home to share, and we all agreed that next time we need to get three or four. I can't seem to find the name of the pizza place, I'll track it down!|
|That evening, Eric and I stole away to Sabores San Miguel, a "gastronomic festival." A FOODIE FESTIVAL!! It was incredible. If anyone happens to read this who also happens to be a food-lover, GO TO SAN MIGUEL FOR THIS FESTIVAL! It happens every year at this time, in Juárez Park. There was an overwhelming selection of food stalls, from restaurants offering their dishes, to mom-and-pops selling pre-packaged goods. And there were also an amazing array of tastings of beer, wine, whiskey, tequila and, of course, mezcal, all produced in the region. It was delightful.|
|Here we purchased some jam...the ingredients: peaches, almonds, vanilla and calendula. YUM! This was from a restaurant we've been to called Nectar, but we call it the Hummingbird Cafe because of all the hummingbird-related merchandise.|
|Lots of sweets...|
|I'm not a big whiskey person, but this was actually pretty delightful. Super smooth. Strangely, I can't find a link to it, even on the festival's site. If you happen to see O'Donnells White Wolf Whiskey and that's your thing, give it a shot!|
|No modern food festival is complete without a local cerveza. Cerveceria Allende fits the bills, and their tastings were delicious and refreshing...|
