23 Mar Recommendation Corner: De Temporada
After my recent article, How to Have a Smashing Weekend in San Miguel de Allende, a friend wrote to see if I had tried the farm to table gem De Temporada, a restaurant located on the organic farm La Trinidad. We were impressed to say the least. Not only is it delicious, well-portioned, gourmet food, but it comes fresh from the farm to your plate.
Apart from the beautiful ambiance of the farm itself, so green and vibrant, the restaurant is made from up-cycled palates and wooden crates, and the walkway lined with up-cycled wine bottles. Inside we met Iliana, the delightful woman behind the delicacies created there.
While waiting for our food we gazed out over the farm to the reservoir and mountains in the distance, sipping watermelon and ginger water. We tried two of their specials that day: Mussels in garlic butter sauce with fresh bread (120 mxn), and tender pork belly over a bed of lentils and spinach with homemade applesauce (110 mxn).
We only missed out on their in house French style ice creams because we were too full. That’s for next time. This incredible establishment is not to be missed!
On the road to San Miguel Viejo. Veer left after the train tracks instead of right to go to Cienenguita. Follow the signs to Otomi. Open 12 – 5.
