The previous time I visited Madera, I was drawn by the wine.

For my stop in October, I was here to check out a Oaxacan restaurant, Sazón Zapoteca. Checking its FB page today, I'm saddened to learn that it shuttered the restaurant last month and is converting to a catering and dinner event model. So I suggest keeping an eye out for special events on Facebook.

Since I was there a few days before Halloween, the place was decorated for Day of the Dead and had special calaca-decorated pastries for the observance. Atole blanco spiked with canela and piloncillo has a satisfying rough texture of hand-ground maiz. Memelas for breakfast spread with black beans, asiento and quesillo were delicious. They make all seven moles here but usually three kinds per day. I was given a complimentary taste of Coloradito, it’s beautiful.

The Zapotec family owners partnered with a local organic farm to market produce boxes. I hope they get back on their feet soon.
