"My first stop in San Miguel proved also to be one of the best. At Chamonix, Chef Ana Lilia Galindo Chávez serves a sophisticated but unpretentious interpretation of Mexican cuisine. Her small menu, featuring lovely homemade soups and pastas, salads, appealing appetizers and entrees, quickly became my favorite lunch spot. The understated garden setting adds to the already charming dishes. Artichoke soup is simple, flavorful and light: a perfect pairing for Chamonix’s signature salad of pear, spinach, walnuts and Roquefort. The pasta, tossed in lemon sauce with prawns, is fresh, delicate and tasty. For a main course, try the Swiss Fillet, topped with blackened onions and served in a chipotle, sun dried tomato and rosemary sauce. To thoroughly revel in your meal, end with a slice of her delightful key lime pie."
N.B. Chávez opened Chamonix with her nephew, Chef Allen Williams, who grew up in Mexico and completed his culinary training in Switzerland. Now Chef Allen has his own San Miguel restaurant, Food Factory.
