“Food is our common ground, a universal experience.”
I’ve always been able to find great street tacos in San Miguel—but hesitate to recommend any particular location until I get back there in January and re-sample the merchandise. As a rule of thumb, if you see others eating there (multiple others are best), then I wouldn’t be concerned. Experiment, don’t be afraid. Wander the streets of Centro.
Tacos the way the locals like them!
At the Jardin (town square), you’ll find many vendors selling chile lime corn (with cheese) or clear plastic cups full of cut fruit such as watermelon, pineapple, and papaya. You could certainly have your whole lunch down there. And ice cream for desert.
The corn on a stick with lime, chiles and cheese. Yum!
And then there are the pollos asados (roasted chicken) places around town. Pollo Felize (pictured and mapped) is also a sit down restaurant but you’ll see (and smell) other pollos asados spots that are purely take-out—roasting their pollos practically on the street under awnings. The chicken is amazing—great potatoes, too. A very inexpensive meal that you can take back to your hotel, B&B or house on days when you just don’t feel like going out (or cooking). Pollo Felize, by the way, translates to Happy Chicken but I think not if they are roasted, although I am always very happy to have them for dinner.
The roast potato sides, they are great. So is the sauce for the pollo.
