On our recent visit to the nearby city of Guanajuato, our friend, Miguel, who also happens to be one of the best guides around, introduced us to this gem.
This sandwich is a typy of torta locally known as a "guacamaya", and it is blissfully delicious. It consists of avocado, a hard boiled egg, and an insane amount of pork rinds all topped with a spicy pico de gallo salsa.
It is the best 25 pesos one could ever spend. That's $1.25 at today's exchange rate!
If you're in Guanajuato, be sure to visit this vendor located just down the street from the "callejon del beso"
The Perfect Tamarind Margarita
Whenever we are in the mood for a tasty margarita, we head down to the square and order a couple of these refreshing drinks at La Posadita restaurant. Served in an oversized glass, this tamarind margarita served as a slushy or on the rocks has been a staple of theirs for many years, and it always hits the spot!
La Posadita is a great option for traditional Mexican dishes like enchiladas or posole.
Located on Cuna de Allende #13, San Miguel de Allende, right around the corner from the Parroquia.
We were informed back in January of this year that our humble San Miguel de Allende inn had been awarded the tripadvisor.com Travelers' Choice Award in the category of Best B&Bs and Inns - Mexico for the 2nd year in a row and for the 4th time is 6 years.
Yesterday, we received our award plaque, which we will proudly display in our office.
Thank you to all of our guests for your wonderful support!
Francisco and Antonieta, your hosts
