Mexican Foodventure #1: Corn on a Stick!
I just spent an unforgettable week in Mexico City. I was staying with some dear friends of mine and since they are locals, I had the opportunity to see, try and do things that a tourist wouldn’t necessarily have the chance to do in another circumstance.
Along with all the sights and debauchery, it was my mission to eat as much of the local fare as possible. I will admit that it was a hilarious week of good, spicy and downright nasty! On every street corner you see a vendor of some sort and quite often you see people grilling corn. This past summer in Veracruz, I witnessed a disgusted attempt at corn in a cup: (which is the same as corn on a stick…but in a cup!) and was a bit weary but figured i might as well try it for myself…

In the end, I never finished my corn on a stick. I will admit that the concept is cool and I would order it again BUT without the Queso Blanco, as a cheese lover I was appalled….I mean, don’t call this stuff cheese…It’s more like dehydrated rotten feta. Okay, i know i sound harsh but i take my cheese very seriously. I wish that i could order corn on a stick in Toronto; what a perfect snack on a summer day.
Speaking of summer….i hope everyone is staying warm.; It was quite a shocker getting off the plane last night. But I have the perfect remedy and will post it for y’all this weekend.
