Delicious and Filling

Posted on 02 / 16 / 2015

I don't speak much Spanish, so I let the hostess suggest a combination for me. I asked her if there was leche or queso, and she said only soy milk. About six different dishes came out, and none of them was a salad. Everything was very good, and cost fifty pesos for the meal.

This is the best restaurant in Morelia for non-meat eaters. There aren't that many places available in this city but this is tops. Great-tasting food, fast and dependable service. I ate hear twice while I was visiting this quaint city and will return again.

Pros: Great flavor in the food, Dependable, Fast Service

India not that far away from Morelia afterall

Posted on 03 / 11 / 2013

Govinda's is downtown Morelia but a few blocks from the main plaza. It is upstairs. For all that it is worth the walk and the climb. It is a treasure. Do not expect it to be Indian ie Hindu cuisine. But it is close enough for me to savor a taste of Asia. They also have hamburgers, vegetarian ones, and Mexican specialties without meat. Speaking just about the Lunch Special # 1, the closest in the menu to an Asian meal, you get: a soup, lentil, barley or vegetable; a mild curry; a mound of rice; a yogurt; a samosa (like an empanada) with a vegetable stuffing; a pakora (a vegetable fritter); a gelatin dessert made from a non animal source; a slice of whole grain bread; and a fruit drink. I have asked three times and was told that everything is made strictly (Indian) vegetarian in their kitchen. I love the quick service, the filling meal, the modest price.

Pros: fresh wholesome cooking, pleasant quick service
