BEST CORN, EVER *Confessions
Besides Oprah, beauty/cosmetics, bacon & soup my next obsession would be CORN. I love corn anything/everything. Corn salad, corn soup, corn on the cob, cornbread, corn cakes, corn candy even!
Some of my fave spots to get corn:
+ The Alley- downtown Los Angeles (That added lime juice is so damn good y’all, extra paprika on top please)
+ Corn on the cob in your bag at Boiling Crab (Best part of my meal)
+ Elote man on Elden Ave + Olympic (I MISS LIVING ON ELDEN FOR THIS REASON ALONE)
+ Café Habana
+ My moms Vietnamese corn recipe // Grilled Corn Green Onion Oil Recipe ('IM CRYING NOW BECAUSE I MISS MY MOM AND HER COOKING SO MUCH RIGHT NOW LIFE IS NOT FAIR) *dramatic tears
Yea, the obsession is deadly & I’m not sorry about it.
Well if you’re in the Los Angeles Area & want to get your hands on some premium corn … here are some options if street corn isn’t your style :)
1) Cha Cha Cha
Elote Con Ajo: Corn Grilled on the Cob and Smothered with Garlic Butter
You get 4 little cobs & it’s perfection. I got the Sangria which is a favorite at Cha Cha Cha but I think Sangria at Bacaro LA is so much better. I want to try the blueberry mojito next time. 4/5
2) Short Order
Grilled corn smothered in avocado sauce. I didn’t like the feta on top. True Elote should be topped with cotija cheese instead( I know, I know…it’s not an elote style dish, whatevz). This corn/dish was a-ok, my coffee malt just outshined this entire meal. Whoops. 2/5
3) Café Habana
The only restaurant that hits a home run with the Elote Style Corn-hands down! Best I’ve Ever Had. 5/5
