The Latin Kitchen has published a profile of Zapoteca.
Almost immediately, the orange-spiced aroma grabbed me as I gazed into the steaming squash soup. It was topped by a slowly melting square of chocolate brittle that was filled with pumpkin pepitas. I put my spoon in, careful to fill it with both equal parts soup and chocolate. The taste: sublime, both with earthy squash and rich cacao flavors, and savory, with crunchy and smooth textures.
I choked on my words, turned to my friend and said, “Have you ever tasted anything like this? It’s insanely wonderful.”
