L.A. Notes

L.A. Corner On The Cob

Also known as elote.

Classified as goddamned street food.

Found with a strong sense of exploration and don’t-give-a-fuck-ness.

Eaten under the L.A. sun.

Made of hard work, resilience, and flair — with a dash of L.A. smog.

The recipe according to Chef Roy Choi:

  • Corn (shucked)
  • Vegetable oil
  • Butter (softened)
  • Salt
  • Mayonnaise
  • Cotjia cheese
  • Cayenne
  • Lime
