Dia de Muertos is a trio of days honoring ancestors and remembering the souls of the dead. It is celebrated from October 31st to November 2nd. The Mexican holiday has evolved from its original, Aztec origin, but still involves feasting and dancing, as well as visits to graves and cemeteries, costumes and decorations.
We’ll be celebrating the Day of the Dead on November 2nd, with foods that speak to Puebla and Mexico City – the traditional home of the holiday and its Aztec roots.
Join us on the 2nd and try one (or all!) of these special dishes:
Classic Pumpkin Soup $10
with crispy onions and parsley
Savor this Sopa de Calabaza, knowing that pumpkin comes from Mexico.
Lomo de Cerdo $15
Pork loin served with a sweet potato puree and swiss chard
Spaniards brought pork to Mexico, but defeños make it all their own
Romeritos de Branzino $14
With mole, red bliss potatoes, watercress
Enjoy romeritos – a needle-shaped green with flavor similar to spinach – with its classic counterpart, mole.
