Santo Huacal

Top choice mexican in Pátzcuaro

This tiny garden restaurant run by a young couple from Oaxaca is a wonderful find. From the weekly-changing blackboard menu, choose such delectables as root vegetable salad in a honey-mustard dressing, stuffed dates wrapped in bacon, and quiche made with poblano chilies and huitlacoche (mushroom-like corn mold). Desserts are to die for here.
