Gourmet style buffet in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico
Rosewood Hotels is a global chain with 36 locations on four continents. However, this resort in Mexico has been rated as the best of all. Rosewood San Miguel de Allende is a five star luxury hotel with spectacular views over the city skyline. The sparkling pool is lined with cabanas and palm trees, an idyllic tropical paradise. Considered one of the more expensive accommodation choices in town, one way to enjoy the estate is to dine at one of its seven distinct culinary sites. I had the chance to experience a memorable outdoor brunch at his signature restaurant, 1826.
This buffetThe stylish restaurant is a wonderful place to celebrate Mexico’s rich history. The menu offers traditional and innovative Mexican cuisine made with local ingredients. Rosewood San Miguel de Allende kisses the from farm to table philosophy by partnering with nearby farms and suppliers who work with the culinary team to provide various fresh organic products. There are several stations to visit to appeal to all palates. The restaurant is scattered with nicely decorated food stalls. One option that caught my eye was a woman patting some handmade blue corn tortillas. Customers choose their meat-based or vegetarian toppings and meals are prepared right in front of your eyes. A huge honeycomb block is displayed above eye level, allowing gravity to flow the sticky golden honey into a bin placed below to collect it. It’s as natural as it gets. the goat cheese is delivered fresh every day. It is soft, but quite firm, with a mild taste and goes very well with wine.
Each dish requires interaction with the staff. This allows for personal customization as the meals are served by the chefs based on the customer’s instructions. Customer service sets the 1826 apart from any other buffet. Get a taste of Mexico through Rosewood food and hospitality. I am very glad I did.
