Has anyone been to Uruapan recently? If so, any dining suggestions. I will be there from March 14 - 17th for the Fería and Concurso de Artesanias. I am traveling with a loosely organized group of people. The group has recommended these places so far --
- The Restaurant at the Masion Caputizio Hotel
- La Camelinas (upstairs at the Plaza Hotel)
- Restaurante La Terraza de la Trucha (somehow the part that says lots of tour busses arriving between 1 - 4 pm doesn't inspire a lot of confidence)
- La Pergola Restaurant
- La Lucha Coffee Cafe
I already know about the Purhepecha Fería de Gastronomia and plan to make at least 1 stop there. Hotel food isn't exactly my thing, but I do know that hotel food in Mexico can actually be pretty decent. I'm not particularly squeamish about eating down the food chain either. If it's regional, interesting or simply tastes good, I'm willing to give it a go. I'm also interested in perhaps visiting and checking out local mercados/tianguis.
I've only been to Uruapan once, for 8 hours, now I've got 3 days to get to know the city...and maybe finally learn how to pronounce it correctly ;-D. So I'm looking for food suggestion of any type. TIA
