Café Ynez is Serving Grasshopper Tacos to Celebrate El Día de los Muertos

Día de los Muertos is often confused as a Mexican version of Halloween, however, Day of the Dead is actually a festive and colorful celebration of deceased loved ones boasting costumes, parties, parades, and traditional food and drink.
In celebration of the holiday, Café Ynez General Manager, Ricardo Hernandez-Lorenzo, and Executive Chef, JC Piña — both hailing from Mexico City — are collaborating on three special Day of the Dead features, including three Tacos de Chapulines ($13) — yup, that’s Spanish for crickets or grasshoppers — in addition to Pan de Muerto ($2), a bread traditionally prepared and eaten on Day of the Dead, and Mexican Hot Chocolate ($3).
On Wednesday, October 31st and Thursday, November 1st at the Point Breeze Mexico City-inspired all-day-dining BYOB, guests can enjoy a trio of critter tacos, boasting sautéed grasshoppers, onions, pico de gallo, red cabbage, radish and guacamole. Chapulines are grasshoppers that are commonly eaten in Mexico City — typically served as a snack or as a filling, similar to Café Ynez’s Tacos de Chapulines.
For the less adventurous, Café Ynez will also be serving Pan de Muerto, a traditional Day of the Dead sweet bread with roasted poppy seeds as well as creamy hot chocolate made with Mexican-style Abuelita Chocolate.
