Besides the traditional dishes like cabrito and carne asada, Monterrey has a gourmet side that is worth exploring.
For some years the city of Monterrey has been increasing its gastronomical level, becoming one of the most important Mexican cities in the culinary scene, transforming its home flavors into more contemporary concepts.
If you are looking for a different alternative for a family or romantic dinner, we recommend to visit El Barrio Antiguo of the city. Located east of the Macroplaza, this zone surrounded by beautiful and old architecture is characterized for being a meeting point for young people. Among the gastronomical spaces that are there you can enjoy a baked prosciutto pizza paired with a craft beer or a delicious pulled pork sandwich with gorgonzola cheese.
Now if you are looking for something more sophisticated, we recommend to go to San Pedro Garza Garcia, one of the wealthiest zones of the city where you will find gourmet establishments that offer delights like artisanal bread, French food, gourmet tacos, crepes, and Mexican delights with a contemporary twist.
After a long ride around the city of Monterrey and trying the dishes offered, we recommend to stay at Best Western Plus Royal Courts, with relaxing rooms and an excellent and centric location.
