Ejido Ajusco, mile north of the Palomar, in the town across from the Sto. Tomas vineyard.

Its not a cheap place - full tasting menu with wine is around $380 pesos. They have breakfast too.

If you haven't stopped there and you are looking for something different than tacos on the road, then you should check it out.

funny, Ill pay $380 for a nice meal at Zarcillo, but it peees me off that the Palomar charges double for a Magnum ice cream bar.

Ditto on Zarcillo. Very good food.

At Km. 47, take the signed road for La Bocana and Puerto Santo Tomás... Just west of Hwy. 1 as you come down to the Santo Tomás Valley.

Love their fried shredded beef tacos. Also their huevos rancheros.

I've stayed at Palomar twice. The first time was about three winters ago and the second time was just last winter. Both times were on my way home to the U.S. I stayed the first time because ... well, I just had to know. One of the worst hotels I've ever stayed in. My room was very run down. No hot water and of course no reception for the tiny old TV. It's the kind of place where you don't sleep well because you feel icky.

The second time was not planned. I was hoping to stay at Hotel Paraiso Colonet, but it was mid-week, so the manager had a sign with a phone number to call if you wanted a room. I don't have phone service so I couldn't get a room. So my last option was Palomar. It was just as bad as I remembered. Complete dive. The food in the restaurant is okay. But the place is pretty worn. Too many dusty trinkets strewn around. I'm not a picky person but that entire operation is pretty gross. Next time, I will sleep in the cab of my truck.
