Best Up-and-Coming Sonoran Treat

Coctél de Elote

Staff Pick

Remember back in the early '90s, when you'd never heard of a Sonoran hot dog, and you read about them in Best of Tucson® staff picks? Now we have a whole official voting category devoted to them. As always, you heard it here first. So, psssst! Listen up: The next botana riquisima you never heard of that you're going to love is coctél de elote: fresh green corn shaved off the cob and served up in a cup with butter, mayo, cotija cheese, salt, salsa and a squeeze of limón. Slurp it up with a spoon. To find it, cruise South 12th Avenue, and keep your ojos peeled for signs at the food trucks.
