Try this wintem: http://allrecipes.com//Recipe/mexican-corn-on-the-cob-elote/Detail.aspx http://allrecipes.com//Re…-cob-elote/Detail.aspx They don’t specify a spice but I would try starting with your basic Lawry’s and expanding from there. When I make tacos without the packet I use equal amounts of chili powder and powdered adobo, maybe a little bit of cumin and salt and pepper. That should get you there too.
I’m guessing mayo with grated parmesean, salt, pepper, red pepper flakes or maybe some cayenne. Was there some heat to it? Or was that intended as sarcasm?
Whew. I dunno …

Exactly! You weren’t one of the cowboys in that ad were you??
NEW YAWK CITY?! Git a rope…
Hey Billy, nice work here!
I know it may be sacrilege to some to suggest that a great Key Lime pie is being made in New York City (I was thinking of that Pace salsa commercial as I typed that) but those pies are the real deal. I love Key Lime Pie and they are very near the top of my list of best ever. Not cheap, but worth it!
I’m sorry, I passed out a little thinking about what if you made that roasted corn diggly with Minnesota sweet corn. And then you had to go and pull out *chocolate covered* key lime pie. Jeeeesus. Wonderful report sir!
Anyone know what cheese and spices they put on that corn? I’d love to try that at home.
I really enjoyed this report……………………..what a fun “eating day” for all of you!

I know I saw this place on TV, was it Andrew Zimmern?

Some very unusual food,,,,great report…would love to try that corn on a cob….amazing!
Billyboy, looks like a great day, Elote, Pupusas and dipped Key lime pie, why leave NYC. I am still working with my employees on making fresh Pupusas, its a work in progress……………Thanks for the post…………..Bill
Pupusas, curtido and key lime pie.
You’re talking about my own heaven!
Guess I still have time before I get there.
I really would drive that 3000 miles to get there if I could. Those are a few of my favorite tastes!
I try to keep up with what’s happening in the food community by reading some of the local food blogs every day. One of my favorites is SeriousEatsNY.com. Ed Levine and his crack team of bloggers explore all kinds of eats throughout all of the New York City boroughs and throughout the U.S. When they posted about a meet-up at the famous ball fields in Red Hook I knew I had to go. For decades there have been a dozen or so street cart/food truck vendors who have set up shop at the ball fields all summer long. Here is a how-to list for traveling to Red Hook for some awesome Latin food: http://newyork.seriouseats.com/2008/07/red-hook-vendors-soccer-tacos-guide-how-to-get-there-what-to-eat.html http://newyork.seriouseat…there-what-to-eat.html
Anyway, I took the subway to:
And after getting lost walking in Brooklyn I asked for directions and finally made it here:
there are usually baseball and soccer games taking place, but today it was only soccer. I found the Serious Eats team at a picnic table and met Ed Levine, Adam Kuban, Alaina Browne, Erin Zimmer and Leah Douglas. Their bios can be found here: # http://www.seriouseats.com/bios/ They guided me to which vendors I should seek out.
I started out with an order of the revueltas with all of the trimmings.
These were excellent and very rich. Toasty, cheesy, crunchy, spicy, creamy with lots of soft shreds of pork. Just a whole lot going on with this dish and the Salvadorian cream, pickled cabbage and sauce were excellent and like nothing else I have ever tasted. I’m not sure what words to use but it all came together for me
My Maranon (cashew drink). I’m not sure if this is a cashew “water” or “juice” but I really liked it and it was thin with an assertive cashew flavor. Cold and very refreshing on a hot summer’s day.
After taking a food break to chat with some of the people at the meet-up I made my way to the next cart of choice for a watermelon agua fresca
As much as I liked the cashew, this was amazing! Very fresh tasting and lots of pulpy watermelon mixed with with very cold water.
