Corn on the cob from street vendors

LARaven | Jan 16, 2007 06:39 AM

I don't know what these are called besides elotes but I love the corn they sell on the streets here in LA.

At first I thought it sounded disgusting. mayo, butter, shredded cheese and chili powder on corn but it tastes sooo good. Many times I have gotten it the corn itself was nice and sweet.

Anyone know of good areas for this? A guy used to come around my street but I got kinda leary seeing the guy pushing a shopping cart with a pot of corn and jars of mayo laying in the cart all day in the summer.

There used to be a guy on Florence and Mountain View in Huntington Park who had a nicer set up and seemed cleaner at least the cold stuff was on ice. But I guess he was kicked out of the area.
