One of the best restaurants for Regional food, the decoration of the place is awesome. The best dish is "Aporreado" . 100% recommendable

Hard to find, but this fabulous little courtyard is worth the effort. Specializing is spicy stews, incredible tortillas, eggs a tu gusto, tasty fruit plates, and strong coffee -- this is a great place to begin you day in Morelia. Bring your Spanish along.

This place has a home made food, and it's only a few blocks away from downtown. I highly recommend this place if you are in town.

We were not familiar with Calentano food, and one of us is vegetarian, but the staff was really helpful and brought us samples of various dishes. You can't go wrong with any of the specialties from Tierra Caliente. I also really liked the building (on Abasolo) with its courtyard.

I spent a comfortable couple of hours with a dear friend from abroad in this delightful restaurant last week accompanied by the sweet song of love birds and a cackle or two of cockatoos. I ordered the mole, as I do whenever I get the chance to try a new and different one, but without pollo. I ordered a trio... More

Specialing in the foods of the Tierra Caliente. Be sure to have toqueras. Ilike the spicy pork in chile called "Frito". Service can at times be a little off hand and inattentive.

Bad attitude here! Really looked forward to this because we heard so much about it. They close at 6:00 PM, so we went for early dinner about 5:00 PM.. Plenty of time for a leisurely dinner, we thought. Others were just finishing and/or leaving. No one approached or seemed available.. Waited...Finally walked back toward the kitchen and found someone who... More

I highly recommend huchepos (local tamales made with fresh corn), cecina (similar to beef jerky), chorizo, queso fundido and jocoque. If you are lucky a tierracalentegno group will be playing folk music. Very clean and healthy food within a very nice colonial house.
