Explain something to me ...

Why don't more (or any?) restaurants still do a respectable corn-on-the-cob with a big stick running down the center of it so you can pick it up and eat it like a vegetable lollipop?

Well, I found one. In Huntington Park (you listening Mattapoisett in LA?)

It's Johnny's Chick'n Arroz.

Johnny's Chick'n Arroz is generally a laughably funny place to eat. It's basically selling bad Chinese-American food with a dash of Taiwanese-Japanese pop culture thrown into the mix. It's biggest clientele appears to be bargain shoppers after a visit to Fallas Paredes.

But whatever. For me, it's raison d'être is the sweet grilled corn. Whole. With a stick. Sweet, crunchy, a bit salty, and with nice bits of charred niblets scattered throughout -- it's really why god made portable dental floss.
