Pan De Muerto aka Bread Of The Dead – Day Of The Dead – Mi Rinconcito Mexicano

Pan de Muerto Sign

Day Of The Dead (Dia de los Muertos) celebrates the lives of those near you who have passed. It takes place on November 1st and 2nd (same days as the Catholic holidays of All Saints’ Day and All Souls’ Day). Part of this Mexican tradition involves building small altars to those who have passed with their favorite foods. If there’s a Mexican restaurant near, you might be lucky to come across some “Pan De Muerto” which translates into Bread Of The Dead (I’m surprised George Romero has not capitalized on this title).

Mi Rinconcito Mexicano, which has probably the best Mexican food I’ve had in Miami happens to have some through Migaja (the bakery at the back of their restaurant). It’s a sweet bread with sugar on it. Try it because it’ll be gone soon.

About Burger Beast

I started writing the Burger Beast food blog to tell folks about those little forgotten gems in South Florida. Over the course of the last 5 years or so I've added News, Opinions, & Tips on a variety of Food related subjects. My first love will always be Burgers but Comfort Food is where it's at. At the end of the day I’m a regular dude who writes about a bunch of things I think you should know about.
