I’ve mentioned it before, but Pico has the Elote Man (and this is why Pico is better than most places). The elote man pushes a shopping cart around honking a horn to tell you he’s in the neighborhood.
The shopping cart holds a huge pan with corn. He puts it on a stick and slathers on butter, mayo, parm cheese and chile. For a dollar (okay, now it’s two dollars, but worth every penny).
This is the Elote Girl, but not because I make them, because I eat them.Yes, I eat corn I bought from a shopping cart covered in butter and mayo. What of it?
It wasn’t the same, but Ben made elotes tonight. I put butta and parm cheese on mine. I considered mayo (like a traditional one has) but thought better of it. That or I was too lazy to get up and get it.
Review of the Elote Man on Yelp. I concur.
Play by play post of an elote being made.
And this my friends, is why Mexicans are chill – because we buy and sell elotes (corn on the cob) and raspados (snow cones) from a shopping cart for a dollar.
“Si Se Puede eat corn with mayo and chili!”
