A Day of Adventure
By Sandra Ríos
To spend a great day in San Miguel is entirely possible because there are so many different activities and gastronomic experiences for everyone. Here are some options for your unforgettable day.
To start your day with a delicious breakfast, we suggest the restaurant Vía Orgánica, where you will find a wide variety of nutritious choices. We recommend the delicious vegetarian pizza or eggs “al albañil” (bricklayer-style) with onion and nopales in guajillo sauce, garnished with potatoes and salad. To accompany your breakfast, ask for the energy-producing green juice. Margarito Ledesma 2. Col. Guadalupe, 121 0540.
At Vía Orgánica, you can ask for a tour on horseback. You will start with a short walk around the Vía Orgánica Eco-Ranch farm. Then, you can take a horseback ride through the countryside and Los Picachos mountains. After an hour and a half trip, you’ll enjoy a gourmet Mexican meal at a local farm, and here you will also learn how pulque is produced. This fermented traditional drink is made from the maguey, a native Mexican plant. When you have finished, they will drive you back to Vía Orgánica Eco-Ranch. Reservations: humbert @viaorganica.org, 415 113-9672.
Back in San Miguel, we recommend dinner at Mare Nostrum restaurant in a relaxed setting surrounded by beautiful, lush plants. As a starter, we suggest mushrooms cooked in white wine with goat cheese, and for the main course you can order delicious handmade ravioli stuffed with duck and spinach with pepper sauce and butter. Another possibility is salmon cooked in orange juice and spices such as lemon verbena. There is a wide variety of international wines to accompany your meal. For dessert try the famous, traditional tiramisu. Umarán 56, 152 7420.
