Day by Day
Your Suggested Itinerary:
A Terrace with a Historical View & Tasting Menu at Los Juaninos
What Does Michoacan Taste Like? at Lu Cocina Michoacana Restaurante
Michoacán tastes like mezcal with the view of a thousand mountaintops; Like the Sierra de Jalmich pastures where Cotija cheese was born; Like the reflection of silvery charales (miniature fish) swimming in Patzcuaro Lake.
It tastes like the journey of the Monarch Butterfly; Like the silkiness of chocolate or the deep red color of passion fruit; Like cardamom awakening memories in your taste buds.
Michoacán tastes like mystical corn, and above all, it tastes like love in the hands of wonderful cooks –past and present—that allow us to enjoy and celebrate the many wonders of this magnificent land.
Traditional Tasting Menu and Charanda Pairing at Mansión Iturbe
