Prelude:San Miguel de Allende challenge

streetgourmetla | Oct 3, 2008 12:17 AM

Work has summoned me to San Miguel de Allende on the weekend of 10/25.I have traveled through central Mexico, Aguascalientes(estado de mi familia), Guanajuato(ciudad), Leon, Zacatecas,and Northern Jalisco.The food is amazing, but I haven't done serious hounding there because I was with family or hadn't been very thorough when I was going.

This time it's on.I'm looking for authentic Guanajuatense cuisine, and the best places from carreta to la alta cocina.I haven't seen anything on San Miguel here that is very useful towards my goal.Don't need a view, unless I'm staring at a plate of fiambre! Not looking for Italian or International cuisine.Regional food only.

I've started a parcial list of Guanajuatense cuisine to assist in finding what I'm looking for:Enchiladas Mineras,ensalada de xoconoxtle,rabo de zorra, fiambre,caldo michi,menudo,pozole,sopes, fresa cristilada,bunuelos,cajeta y cocada de Celaya,cajeta de almendra,pan de acambaro,rollo de guayaba,jamoncillos,charamuscas,nieves,pacholas,empanadas de carnitas,cebadina,agua de betabel,agua de mezquite,ensalada Guanajuatense,gallina en naranja estiloTarandacuo,nopalitos al pastor,adobo seco,fritangas de pobre,barbacoa,tumbagones,chiles palominos,gelatina de pavo y lengua,sopas de amor and rosaceas.

I'm looking for some more regional dishes if you know them, and some restaurant recs from those that know the city and its hidden gems.

I will of course share my trip when I get back.
