Fodor's Review

You can gaze out over the lake and the town's red rooftops at the Michoacana, which is just a short walk from the zócalo. It's one of the town's best sources of regional fare and a great place for a family meal—and open from 9 am to 11 pm 365 days a year. You can't go wrong here—all the typical Mexican plates you'll recognize are available, but the house specialties include a terrific chamorro (lamb shank) and pre-Hispanic dishes that you won't find everywhere else, such as chapulines con cebolla y chili de arbol (toasted grasshoppers with onion and a spicy red chili sauce), and escamoles a la mantequilla (ant eggs lightly fried in butter).
