Dine on local specialties in lush surroundings…
Located at the edge of the stunning Uruapan National Park – a tropical rainforest and trails along the Rio Cupatitizio and the only National park in Mexico located within city limits — is one of the most special dining spots on the planet. Just above The Devil’s Knees, a mythic waterfall and lagoon, is La Terraza de las Trucha (Trout Terrace), a dining perch overlooking one of the park’s spectacular waterfalls.
As you ingest the breathtaking surroundings, sip on a Guacamaya – an avocado, grapefruit, lemon, cucumber, pineapple, mango and rum delight – created by owner Alejandro Bautista Villegas. Then, start with an avocado cocktail in honor of Uruapan, the avocado capital of Mexico.
For starters; Guacatas – ball of rice filled with avocado, rolled in breadcrumbs served with salsas. Or, the Pico Perico – a refreshing salad of pineapple, red bell peppers, jicama, guayaba and avocado. Then, move on to the “Trucha á la Macadamia” or Macadamia Nut Trout or served al Ajillo (chili guajillo and white wine), a la Diabla (with chili chipotle) or al moja de ajo (chilis and garlic). As your night winds down, finish with a delicious cup of Uruapan coffee coupled with ice cream and macadamia nut cookies. Afterwards, take either a romantic stroll or invigorating hike through the park to commemorate a truly memorable meal.
