We found our pizza, and Sabores San Miguel

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...
