Pátzcuaro's Best Eats?

¡Experimental!


While playing around with
Google Maps, I started a custom map. On it, I added locations and descriptions of some of my favorite places to eat in the Pátzcuaro area. The list is short, but I hope to add more places worth of attention. Maybe later, I will highlight them in some detail.

See the embedded map for my picks.

I see that the map is not centered over where I saved it. I'd also prefer Map View, not Satellite View. Needs tweaking.

Tweaks 1 and 2, accomplished.

Thanks for this. Now for the rest of Mexico!

Fer crissakes, don´t make this a science course. Just list the restaurants in good English, which you are excellent at.

Don Cuevas said...

Thank you, Rachel. It would be a very big job.

Thank you, Felipe. Think of this as a new medium for expression. But English first, maps second.

The real challenge is to find Pátzcuaro restaurants we've enjoyed. I thought of another earlier, but it slipped my mind.

Oh! El Camino Real, although lately it's slipped; but there's a handful more, IMO.

Also, La Surtidora and the Gran Hotel, but we've had few meals at those, other than breakfasts and frequent cafecitos.

Oops, I did mark La Surtidora.

Sr Don Cuevas,
You are a frustrated restaurant critic masked as a retired Gringo.

Shame on you! Come our of the closet!

Get yourself a web site, list the restaurants, invite reviews, sell banner ads, get sponsors, become a hacienda owner!
You can use it to sell your cookbook!

Don Cuevas said...

Tancho; you can be such a nudzh!

I like reviewing restaurants (OF MY CHOICE): I'd hate to have to cover all of them.

I loathe writing out recipes because it's tedious. So, I might write a guidebook but a cookbook, never.

Thanks for commenting.

Saludos,
Don Cuevas

Hope you´ve got Mistongo on there. I like Mistongo. The Spanish restaurant across from Priscilla´s is good. La Puerta Roja. Only ate there once, and had to wait a long, long time because when we arrived the cook was not, like Elvis, in the building.

I am a believer of the "squeaky wheel" dogma!

You may see the light at some point in time.
Besides you have nothing but time! No livestock, no fields to plow, no kids to feed, only a comfortable chair and twinkling fingers perched upon the keyboard!

Don Cuevas said...

I've been twice to Mistongo for dinner and once for a Men's Breakfast. It was good, but not on my "A" List.

I thought that Lady Zapata was not pleased with the paella at La Puerta Roja. I try to stay away from International Cuisine in Pátzcuaro, and perhaps in Morelia (Unless you count hamburgers as International.)

What might you know of the new Pizza a la Leña place off on a side street of the Libramiento?

Saludos,
Don Cuevas

T´was I who was disappointed by the paella in La Puerta Roja years back in its previous location. I have given up on paella in this country after three or four times of ordering it. They ain´t got no clue. But other items at La Puerta Roja have been great.

I generally dodge pizza. Bad for one´s health. Pizza without anchovies is a crime, and you´ll never find anchovies on pizza here. At least I´ve never seen it.

Don Cuevas said...

Felipe; maybe you can get good if not great paella at one of Mexico City's Spanish restaurants. I have a list of Spanish restaurants, very few of which I've tried and in none dd I order paella.

You need to go to a Spanish restaurant run by Valencianos, or Cataláns, at least. We are going to try El Racó, in Colonia Condesa, at our next visit. It's well recommended and Catalán.
Here's just one part of the menú:
