Reliable Restaurants Near Tzurumutaro
Restaurants in/around Patzcuaro would be good. With the exception of Priscilla's and a few around lake Zirahuen, I've been disappointed so far.
Here's a short list, all fairly close to Tzurumutaro:
El Camino Real, behind the Pemex Station, on the road to Pátzcuaro. Mexican, good value, extensive menu. Comida corrida, $55 pesos. Not everything is great. We like the conejo. Place gets extremely busy on weekend afternoons, usually after 2 p.m. Not recommended then.
Mariscos La Güera Campestre, at Km 46, on the north side of the road to Morelia. About 4 miles from Tzurumutaro. Huge seafood restaurant, nearly any dish with shrimp is good. Service and hygiene excellent. I avoid the more elaborate dishes, which are less successful. Whole fish al gusto is good, but the filet dishes tend to be boring.
Pollos Asados El Tejaban, weekends only, 1 p.m. until supplies run out; usually by 6 p.m. About 600 feet north of the RR crossing, on the right, heading north. Delicious charcoal grilled, adobo chicken, finished with fresh orange juice, served with cabbage salad and hot, handmade tortillas. El Tejaban is nearly in front of a metal furniture store. (Back on topic!)
Birrería Don Prisci del Parian (La Estacíon). Closer in on the libre road to Uruapan, on the right beyond the second class bus stop. Tasty birria, of beef or mutton, huge handmade tortillas. Also tacos de guisados at this location, and seafood cocktails. I stick with the birria, a meaty soup which will stick to your ribs. There are two other locations in Pátzcuaro, but this is the most comfortable one.
