Elote is a Mexican preparation of corn on the cob, made with freshly roasted corn slathered with spicy mayonnaise and sprinkled with white cotija cheese. Squirt on a little lime, and you have the ultimate south-of-the-border street food. Here at this treat’s namesake restaurant, the elote is sliced from the cob and served as a sort of dip. This dish alone, maybe with a side of guacamole and a margarita, is reason enough to eat at this highly creative Mexican restaurant. For an entree, try the braised lamb in sweet-and-spicy ancho-chili sauce. This casual and colorful spot feels a bit like a Mexican beach bar. Some great views off the back patio, too.
