Random delicious things
Esquite: corn kernels that are grilled then boiled right on top of the grill, served in a little Styrofoam cup with lime juice, salt, chili powder, queso, and a little mayonnaise if you like, which I do.
Pepe y limonada: no idea if it’s Mexican, but my favorite café, owned by an American, serves fresh limeade and cucumber juice in a massive beer stein, which I like to order with carbonated water.
Queso de Tehuantepec: a bucket of fresh, salty cheese from the Tehuantepec region of Oaxaca, in the isthmus of Mexico, that someone brought to my family’s home, and which I was lucky to eat a lot of.
