Los Michoacanos : Cabo San Lucas, Mexico

In Cabos San Lucas, I stayed in a hotel on Calle Leona Vicario (Leona Vicario Street), which according to the Lonely Planet has been dubbed "Taco Alley" for all of the good, cheap and authentic taco stands.

Michoacanos was one of those places, particularly known for their carnitas.


And their carnitas were oh-so-very-good: juicy, tasty, what you'd want of pork. I ended up getting a couple of their tacos...


...and a tostado carnita (a sandwich), which was pretty great. The buns were essentially soft dinner buns toasted in butter, making for a delicious combo with the juicy pork.



Los Michoacanos and the entire taco alley area in general was refreshingly free of tourists, which is dramatically different than most other parts of Cabos San Lucas. But as a warning, this also meant that you need to speak at least some Spanish to get around. Particularly in Los Michoacanos, I'm still unsure as to whether I made any sense to my poor waitress.

One last tidbit, LosCabosGuide.com, gives some more info on Los Michoacanos. It's apparently a chain and can also be found in La Paz, San Jose del Cabo.
