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.
