Elote, a popular Mexican snack, takes your regular corn on the cob and takes it to a level you will savour, every last bite. Fresh ears of corn are grilled, then topped with mayonnaise, fresh cotilla cheese and chili powder. Sometimes smoked paprika is used as well. As snacks go it is satisfying and filling, for a very reasonable price tag.
So where to find it if you’re not in Mexico? In New York, Cafe Habana makes what I think is the best elote in town. Don’t believe me? Photo below.
