La Cucina de Michele | Pasta Tasting | Las Canitas

This place reminds me of Flour + Water ‘s pasta tasting without the expensive bill that comes in the end. I love their pasta tastings, because it allows me to have a bit of everything. When you sit down at La Cucina de Michele, this is what you have to do : 

  1. go on a Sunday lunch and sit by the window
  2. skip looking at the expensive menu selections and just order the pasta tasting that comes with 1 plate/person of do-it-yourself antipastos (150 pesos/person)
  3. go to antipasto spread and try to fill it mountain high (because you can only do it once).
  4. sit down and enjoy the tender bites of filled pastas
  5. roll your eyes when you dig in the cheese-filled gnocchi
  6. regret that you ate so much of those antipastos when you come onto the 4th course
  7. force stuff the delicious sweet crepe into your mouth and roll back home into a pasta coma

This is so helpful! My wife and I have wanted to go there for a while. Now that we know how to do it, we have no excuse. Thanks!

Doppio Zero has great little nibbles, ambiance, and wine list. For just pasta I have to say LCdM is very good. I can never get over their gnocchi ! It took us 3 tries to perfect the way to eat there without having the feeling of being not worth it – so yes, in the end, we concluded the pasta tasting meal is the best for the value and quality.

I’ve eaten there a couple of times and never found it to be close to Doppio Zero, but maybe I should follow your instructions and give it another whirl…
