Restaurant equipment house in Morelia or Mexico City

Anonimo Sep 9, 2013 04:40 AM

(Hope that this is the right place for this post.)

I'm looking for a large, commercial grade (heavy duty) stainless steel bowl, about 12 liter capacity. I already checked Cristalería Corona in Morelia. They didn't have what I wanted.

I need to find other restaurant equipment stores in Morelia, or failing that, in Mexico City. I already know of a small shop on Calle Revillagigedo, near Arcos de Belén, Mexico City.

    Mercado de la Merced. You'll find an enormous quantity of restaurant equipment,

    Need a salt shaker? Want a stove built to your specs? A bowl should be easy.

      Thanks, Cristina. I'll put La Merced on my shopping map.

      So far, I've located three different restaurant supply stores in the area of Calle López-Ayuntamiento-Revillagigedo of Centro. Mercado San Juan is pretty much in the center of that compact area.

      We'll be making a visit soon. The bowl is just an excuse for another visit to el DF. ¡Viva México!

        Yep, there are a lot there with really basic stuff - restaurant supply, but for hole in the wall restaurants and fondas. If you need something more upscale, or something that a fancier resto would use, like big plastic storage tubs or crazy tart pans and the like, try Central Gourmet on Moliere just south of Rio San Joaquin.

          Update: it happened that a Morelia amiga had a very large, used but good condition stainless steel bowl that she was willing to sell me for a pittance of pesos. I've already happily mixed huge, heavy bread doughs in it by hand, as well as ice brined batches of Bread and Butter Pickles in it.

      here you go:

      "This monument to Giuseppe Garibaldi, by a sculptor named Brooke Wright, was unveiled on April 10th, 1864, on Avenida Chapultepec...The statue is a block from Avenida Cuauhtémoc, next to a down-market shopping center, in an area where stores sell gargantuan refrigerators and other restaurant equipment"

      Finding the right 3 gallon stainless steel bowl should be a snap. Send pictures!

        Thanks! I'll check it out on our next trip to Mexico City.
