Day of the Dead: La Migaja Mexican Bakery Offers Pan de Muerto and Sugar Skulls (Photos)
Day of the dead, or Día de los Muertos in Spanish, is a Mexican holiday that lasts a total of three days -- from October 31 to November 2.
Photos by Carina Ost It's the circle of life -- sugar-dusted.
It's all about hanging out with friends and family, enjoying good food and colorful decorations, and remembering those that have passed. It's celebrated with sugar skulls and a specialty sweet bread called pan de muerto (bread of the dead).
We recently visited La Migaja Mexican Bakery, which is located inside Calle Ocho's Mi Rinconcito Mexicano. Not only is it one of the best Mexican restaurants in this city, it also has great sweets for Día de los Muertos.
When you enter the restaurant, head to the left. The aroma of sweet treats will intoxicate you. In honor of the holiday, beautifully-designed sugar skulls will welcome you by the counter.
Pour some sugar on my cranium.
Jaime Reynoso, the baker behind the pan dulces, is originally from Mexico. He takes great pride in sharing this tradition with his customers.
