Tostilocos and Mexican ice cream in Hayward

escargot3 | Oct 10, 201403:43 PM     9

Stumbled into a Mexican ice cream parlor while waiting for service on my vehicle this aft. United Paleteria on Mission.

My jaw dropped from the variety of options, and then, the delight in a generous serving of guanabana ice cream for $2. Replete with seeds to add texture, color and to show it's authentic, I assume.

But what really caught my attention was the wild notion of tostilocos (a base of Tostitos heaped with pickled pork skin, hard shelled peanuts, tamarind, jicama, cucumber, chamoy, chile). I woulda given it a try 'cept I was full from filipino lunch across the street at Restaurant Kubo (everyone else's lunch seemed better than mine...)
