Restaurante La Mansión del Cupatitzio

International in Uruapan

This indoor-outdoor restaurant in the hotel of the same name can’t be equaled for setting; the alfresco part is sheltered under umbrellas in a pretty garden given extra zest by a swimming pool. It’s almost heresy to come here and not order the trout from the adjacent Río Cupatitzio river, done various ways, but best baked with chilies and macadamia nuts.

Steak with huitlacoche (corn fungus – not unlike sauteed mushrooms) is also good.
