    A Few of My Favorite Restaurants to Eat in San Miguel de Allende

    Did you know that Artelexia hosts weeklong craft & culinary tours to Oaxaca and San Miguel de Allende? Eat.Drink.Cook.Mexico., our sister company, just returned from one of our trips to San Miguel de Allende last month where we spent the week eating, drinking, cooking and shopping. Here are just a few of our favorite places to eat while in SMDA. Enjoy!
