Elotes and more from street food vendor Dona Tere in the Mission
Elotes are a very popular street food served all over Mexico. It’s roasted corn on the cob, slathered in butter, mayo, cheese, and chili. The type of cheese used is cotija cheese, which is a dry, grainy cheese from Mexico. It’s fairly salty and is used in many traditional Mexican dishes.
The thought of eating something so artery-clogging may not sound ideal, but if you’ve never had elotes before, you are missing out on a treat. I wouldn’t eat this everyday but when I do have it, I enjoy every single bite.
