What does San Miguel taste like?
By Jade Arroyo
With Parque Juárez as a backdrop, which looks splendid after the recent rains, the first edition of the festival Sabores de San Miguel was celebrated. Sabores de San Miguel was part of the San Miguel Gourmet campaign, a series of activities that made the town a little more savory during June.
There was a little bit of everything to eat. Served in small portions costing 20 pesos, the food options included everything from classic street food to sophisticated fusion cuisine. One of the goals of having every dish the same low price was to make the dishes accessible to everyone, so all could try a bit of many things.
Both gourmet and traditional flavors bonded harmonically, seasoned with much wine, laughter and amusement for young and old during the all-day event, which took place June 21–23. Among the artists and performers participating were Pilaseca funk band and Rabbeats and DJs La Niña and Donnie.
