"A New York Treasure" --Village Voice

Taster’s Cherce

It might be way too early in the season for the good, fresh corn, but it’s never too early to think about Mexican corn on the cob.

Saveur has the recipe.

Elote, staple of NYC street fairs. Always get one, loaded with everything.

And here I thought elote was a So Cal thing. Street vendors walk the neighborhoods around my school constantly in the spring, summer, and fall hawking this stuff, complete with butter, mayo, and chile powder. I've never tried one though -- I love corn on the cob, but prefer it straight out of the pot or off the grill -- no butter, no salt!

Every summer I bike out to the ballfields at Red Hook where they sell this from the vans. One van in particular does a splendid job with the corn. Get an orchata with it. Great combo. You'll know the van because it will have one of the longer lines.
