Aquiles 744: Asian Cuisine in Downtown Morelia

The next best thing to traveling is having the opportunity to try food from a particular region or country.  Many local expats complain that it is almost impossible to find good Asian food in Morelia.  Let alone fresh and healthy Asian food. Yet when Rodrigo Vazquez opened Aquiles 744 he set out to do just this: fill Morelia’s quality Asian cuisine shortage.

the restaurant is small (seven tables and a bar). But what it lacks in space, the owner and chef make up for it in quality and service.  Friendly and efficient wait staff explain each dish while offering choices to those who are unfamiliar with the dishes.

The menu features food from different Asian countries like pancit from The Phillipines, bulgogi from Korea, nasi lemak from Malaysia, and pad thai from Thailand. Vazquez offers a variety and selection of Asian dishes and he insists on staying faithfull to the original.  

For those who want something different that features freshness and flavor, visit Aquiles 744. Check out their Facebook page for more information on hours, menus and specials.
