Cold Michoacan Treats in San Diego

Masa Assassin | Sep 17, 2008 12:17 AM

I found it finally!!!!!

While doing some recon on Market St just east of the 805 I found the Nieve de Elote (Corn Ice Cream) I’ve been seeking! Nieveria Tocumbu is going to be my new spot for Ice Cream. The owner hails from Tocumbo Michoacan and started his modest business 4 years ago.

All Ice cream is homemade, and they have a huge selection of some interesting flavors. I opted for the Mamey and Elote. I was so focused on the Elote I did not get to sample more of their extensive flavors.

Its all about the Nieve and Paletas here however they offer so much more
Raspados, Tostilocos, Diablitos, Mangoneadas. Licuados, Aguas Jugos, Smoothies, Escamochas, Fruit Salads, Frutilocos, Takilocos and even Tostadas de Cueritos

I sampled the Mageoneados which is two scoops of mango ice cream, chunks of mango, chamoy, chili and chile powder, liquid chile and a stick of spicy tamarindo.

I also tried a Strawberry Coconut Raspado which I probably won’t be ordering here again. Honey Banana in National City has the lockdown on Raspados for me.

If you’re looking to experience some interesting flavors of Ice Cream this is your spot. Service is great and the place is super clean with ample seating.
