Los Asados de Patzcuaro Restaurant where everything is roasted Mexican style

Los Asados de Patzcuaro Playa Del Carmen

Do you want a really local place to have a tacos? Los Asados de Patzcuaro is about as local as you can get and it is kind of well known locally. It is far up in the Colosio neighborhood in Playa and way away from the tourist area, so you will be eating with the locals as well.

What makes this place good is the roast meat, original salsas and handmade tortillas made right on the comal. Handmade tortillas are always a nice touch and hard to find. We love the green salsa that is sweet and spicy at the same time. The restaurant is clean and basic and that is about all you need.

The place looks small from the front but there is actually a large covered patio in the back to eat on.

Check this place out for lunch and especially when it will be busy and they will be grilling up a lot of options, perhaps the weekend. This is not a huge tourist pilgrimage spot yet, and tourist do have some other options closer in the center that are good. For those more adventurous and living here, you might want to check this place out.
