Milagros Mexican Restaurant

By Katerina Gasset

In my neighborhood in Indian Hills in Provo, we are a close-knit community. We get together frequently to go to events, restaurants, museums, and other activities together.

Last month, we had our Literary Guild meeting. We chose to go out to lunch together. One of the ladies said we should try Milagros, a Mexican restaurant in Orem, Utah. 

The food was delicious, and the service was top-notch. Altogether we were  a group of 17 ladies. The staff connected several tables together, so we could all sit together. 

The decor was traditional and festive. Here are some photos I took:

I had a wonderful time. 

The food came out quickly. I was actually surprised. 

One of my friends ordered the seafood ceviche, which was absolutely delicious. 

Milagro’s offers a variety of vegetarian menu choices.

I had a tough time choosing between the Happy Enchiladas and the Spinach Enchiladas. 

I ended up choosing the Spinach Enchiladas. 

And that was a great choice! The spinach was fresh too! 

Several of the ladies chose the Chimichanga, which seems to always be a hit at Mexican restaurants, and Milagros was no exception.

Milagros Mexican Restaurant in Orem, Utah, differs from your average Mexican restaurant. It all started with a genuine passion for authentic Mexican cuisine.  

The talented chef behind Milagros, Dave Tuomisto, embarked on an incredible culinary adventure spanning months with one goal: to showcase the rich traditions and flavors of the Bajio region of Mexico to Utah. 

Chef Dave’s journey to bring the essence of Mexico to Utah was a story of hard work and sacrifice. He dedicated countless hours to researching and testing recipes from the women of the region, who generously shared their culinary secrets. 

Chef Dave’s commitment to finding authentic recipes reflects the high standards of quality he upholds at Milagros. What sets this restaurant apart is its dedication to using locally sourced, fresh vegetables and fruits. With a passion for the freshest and highest quality ingredients, every dish at Milagros bursts with flavors and nutrition.  

One of Chef Dave’s specialties is slow-roasted meats, inspired by the Spanish influence of the Bajio region. These meats are marinated in a blend of spices and fruit juices, resulting in a unique and incredible flavor. 

Milagros also offers signature items like Mata Hambre, which features oven-roasted pork, grilled steak, and tender chicken breast. The baby back ribs are marinated for two days in freshly squeezed fruit juices, showcasing Chef Dave’s innovative approach to Mexican cuisine. 

A culinary masterpiece at Milagros is their chile relleno. A large, fresh poblano pepper is expertly stuffed with Fundido cheese, then batter-dipped and deep-fried to create a golden, crispy perfection. 

Milagros also serves mouthwatering seafood enchiladas and other ocean-inspired dishes.

I give Milagro’s Mexican Restaurant 5 stars. This is based on the timeliness of the food getting to our tables, even with 17 people ordering at one time. 

It is based on the quality of the food and the amazing customer service.

About the author of Move to Provo Utah Website 

Katerina Gasset

When I moved here I was blessed to have my daughter to help with different things you need to know when you move to a new place. I had background from living here before but things have changed a lot too since the '80s. 

We were able to get all the good places to eat down fast - since she knows all that and we have a lot of the same likes in food. But things like how to turn on my electricity or what power company services my home... well... I was at a total loss! 

I know that other people moving to Provo don't always have family here to guide and help them. And most people don't have a real estate agent who gives them a welcome package on all the important numbers and places they need to know. 

My goal is for this website to be your go to resource for everything you need to know before, during, and after you move here to Provo, Utah. I want you to have the best experience and love living here as much as I do
