Atole at La Texanita in Santa Rosa

With the cool down in the weather, I thought that champurrado and atole drinks might be returning to taco truck row. Cruising Sebastopol Road last night, I soon spotted the sidewalk sign in front of Antojitos La Texanita promoting atole.

Get your hot atole -

While the street scene was relatively quiet, the restaurant was packed to the gills with Mexican families at 9:30pm on Friday. I went up the counter to get a big cup of atole to go. The proprietress warned me that it was VERY hot . . . no kidding, it was a good 30 minutes in the car before it cooled down enough to not scald my mouth. She said they'd started making atole again as of Thursday. The scent of canela, but less vanilla tones than I remember here, and still warming through and through.
