When I say that Fonda San Miguel is one of the best Interior Mexican Restaurants around, I don't just mean in Austin. It is one of the best in the country. Not only is the food impeccable, the decor transports you to another time and place. I alway feel like I am on vacation when I am there. I go there regularly to enjoy the tropical ambiance with resident parrot, food not only delicious, but beautifully presented, herbs grown on the premises, a great waitstaff and an amazing bar with incredible drinks. My favorite dish is the Ancho Relleno: an ancho chile stuffed with chicken, olives, capers and almonds, served in a light cilantro cream sauce. The guacamole is outstanding, as it everything else. I also love the gulf shrimp in chipotle cream sauce. The Pollo Asado, (widely known under the misnomer of chicken fajitas), is the best I've ever had. They also make my favorite salsa in town, homemade tortillas and the bar makes outstanding drinks. I love the SIlver Coin which is watermelon infused tequila, lime and Cointreau, served with a fresh watermelon wedge. They also make the best Mojito and Pisco Sour in Austin. The dining room is beautiful, with traditional Mexican decor. I enjoy sitting in the bar area, where you can order off the main menu or just have drinks and appetizers. If you've never been to Fonda San Miguel, you are missing out on a great dining experience.
