The same good old Zumo. But a whole new crowd.

It’s been happening for a few years now. The decline of 50+ expats out on the town. And their rapid replacement by 20+ nationals. But I really noticed it on Sunday. First, on the streets of Centro. And then at lunch at one of our favorite San Miguel restaurants....

Sushi a la Mexicana. A feel-good foodie flick.

My latest foodie film recommendation came from an unlikely source. My friend Dilia Suriel is a living, breathing version of IMDb when it comes to recommending movies, especially those little sleepers that often slip by unnoticed. But this was a film about sushi and...

Still lovin’ the lobster. But there was something missing from Mario’s.

“Lord thunderin’ Jesus, bye, those aren’t lobsters. Lobsters got two big arms.” I’m from north of the 49th parallel, from the country that eats more lobster, per capita, than any other country in the world. The lobster we Canadians eat comes from cold waters. It has...

Seven steps to a restaurant’s success. And one restaurant that has climbed to the top of the ladder.

It was our anniversary. Our first anniversary. An entire year since we had eaten dinner indoors at a restaurant. So, where to go? Actually an easy choice. We’d simply go to the restaurant that’s been San Miguel’s favorite for four of the last five years. And the last...
