On an article published by Maya Sankey-Black for The Culture Trip she takes us through six places to eat that won’t hurt your bank account.

San Miguel de Allende has become something of a gastronomic hub in Mexico; home to many high-end restaurants serving refined, gastronomic dishes. But for backpackers and those on a smaller budget, there are many eateries serving delicious, authentic Mexican food for a fraction of the price, you just have to know where to look. So, where can you find good food for less money in San Miguel de Allende? Here, we take you through six places to eat that won’t hurt your bank account, for whatever food you might be craving.

Taco van on Insurgentes
If you’re ever strapped for cash but want to try some real Mexican food, then head to a taco van. There are many of these dotted around the town, but the one on Insurgentes street, in the centre of San Miguel, is arguably the best. From the afternoon to early in the morning, these guys are open, catering to all your taco desires. Not only are they incredibly affordable, just ten pesos (60c) per taco, they are delicious. Why not try the al pastor taco? This is the Mexican version of shawarma: pork marinated in chili, spices and pineapple, and then grilled on a vertical spit. You can then top your taco with a choice of sauces: two kinds of salsa (red or green) and guacamole. You sit out on the street with everyone else and enjoy. The only problem you might have with this taco van is knowing when to stop ordering!

Los Burritos
Just up the road from the taco van, is a burrito and burger restaurant called Los Burritos. A family-run business, open for 30 years, they serve great food at a great price. These burritos are nothing like the ones you may know, stuffed with meat, cheese, rice, beans, etc. They are much simpler: a soft wheat tortilla, filled with a choice of meat or veggies, an optional sprinkling of cheese and served with pico de gallo salsa. We recommend the arrachera burrito, slow cooked beef, marinated in spices. You can get this and a beer for just 55 pesos ($3.25). They have other deals throughout the week such as two for one beers on Thursdays, two burgers and two beers for 120 pesos on Fridays, two burritos for 60 pesos on Saturdays and finally a double patty, double bacon and double cheeseburger for 59 pesos on Sundays. It’s hard to find a reason not to go.
