What is Cacao?

I recently went over to the only authentic Venezuelan restaurant in the state of Pennsylvania, Sazon restaurant on Spring Garden Street in Philadelphia. I first heard about Sazon through a friend I do Capoeira with. He was raving about this place that served these authentic cacao drinks. At first I didn't believe him. I mean Philly isn't exactly on the map when it comes to healthy options!

I had to check this place out for myself and was delightfully surprised to learn that it was beyond what I could have expected. Robert is a mad scientist when it comes to the creations of the twenty uniquely concocted authentic cacao drinks he offers. If you're eating a vegan diet be sure to ask ahead of time for them to make your drink that way. They also have the most amazing vegan truffles with flavor combinations you couldn't imagine.

I was blown away by the quality, knowledge and passion Robert has for this medicinal plant. Robert and his wife are great down to earth people. Whether you want to pop in and sit at the bar to have a stellar cacao drink and nibble on a truffle, or would like to sit down and have an authentic Venezuelan dinner--stop in and tell them Michelle sent you. You won't be disappointed!
