No, despite what you may be thinking, Bucareli is not an Italian pasta, a European motor scooter, or  a secret enclave for Italians in Morelia.

Calle Virrey Antonio de Bucareli is a busy street that crosses much of the Eastern side of Morelia. I travel it often because I ride the Coral combie route to Centro. It is a vibrant, interesting part of the city and along its length are hundreds of family restaurants, stores and places to wander. Bucareli is not a tourist destination or well-known outside of Morelia, but it is an important part of the city and worth the time to explore.

“Eating Bucareli” is the name of a series of photos I will be taking that will include many places along this street that I have visited and tried. The photos posted today do include some places I have not tried yet, but think of them as placeholders for when I do get a chance. The name is also used for an album on the Facebook page for this site.
