A Natural Day
By Sandra Ríos
In San Miguel de Allende, we are fortunate to find food and drink from where it is actually grown and produced. Here are some places for you to go and try.
Start your day with a tasty breakfast at Vía Orgánica, where most of the products are cultivated by Vía Orgánica. Try some thin, crispy vegetarian pizza or organic eggs any style. Accompany your meal with a green juice and a cup of organic coffee.
Margarito Ledesma 2, Col. Guadalupe, 121 0540.
After your breakfast, to continue on the same theme, we suggest you visit the ranch Dos Búhos, where on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday there is a tasting of organic wines produced there. If you want a tour around the ranch, call them to reserve a place. You can also stop by the art showroom where you can browse and acquire pieces by local artists.
Km. 6 Highway Queretaro-San Miguel, 151 7013/55 5351-5060.
On your return to San Miguel, if you want to eat equally healthy organic food, we suggest you go to De Temporada Farm, a unique restaurant located inside a ranch where they grow the vegetables. There is a scenic view of the wonderful dam. You can enjoy the beautiful sights and the creative, nutritious meal. We recommend that you try the ceviche. For dessert, ask for the homemade ice cream of the day.

At night, La Sirena Gorda, a lively place visited by both locals and tourists, serves tasty seafood in a relaxed atmosphere with good drinks and good music.
