Sazon is a closely held local secret, cherished for its home-style cuisine as well as for the rich hot chocolate it serves. (Some even claim drinking the pure, thick stuff elicits an almost out-of-body experience.) Sazon features a full menu of drinking-chocolate choices. The blend called El Azteca is made from pure Mexican cacao and infused with five chili peppers, blue corn, agave, achiote, and cinnamon. The Calabaza King is crafted from chocolate, fresh pumpkin, pecan, nutmeg, cardamom, and cinnamon, then topped with pumpkin cream. If you are interested in solid food, Sazon serves Venezuelan cuisine: empanadas and arepas (authentic corn-flour patties) that are whipped up fresh daily. The extensive menu includes many vegetarian options as well.
