I live in San Miguel de Allende, a charming colonial town in the mountains of central Mexico (moved here from New York six years ago), where there are many restaurants, mostly quite undependable but often very seductive. Very fine home cooking, though, despite the difficulty of finding just the right ingredients this far south of the border. It's fun to try Mexican cooking, but since that's pretty easy to get here--street food is the best--I've tended try more Indian and Asian cuisine, since that's harder to find.
