Street Corn and Garage Sale Meat

My first video!  I put gel in my hair thinking it would help with the wind but ended up looking like I've been living on the streets for a few weeks. It is what it is.  :D  I'm showing you guys a street corn vendor and a dude selling cooked meat from the side of his house.  Explanation in the video!  (omgomgomgomg can't-belive-I-did-this but also squuueeeeeeee!!)

Oh shit, I died laughing! I dare you to walk up to the vendors and really show them what the food looks like next time!! I miss elote....slathered in mayo and sprinkled with cheese. I wonder if Parmesan would work in a pinch here. Mia won't eat it any other way now.

Krystal I actually DO start to get brave in the future videos. I figured out that as long as I ask "Can I take a picture/video for my mom?" that they always say yes :D I got a corn cart one for later in the week, the guy was laughing at me :D

Have you noticed that the vendors and restaurants do not refrigerate the mayonnaise?

Gringa-n-Mexico said...

Tony yes but it never crossed my mind :D But it's true, none of the cheeses, the cream, the margarine or the may is refrigerated. And yet we all somehow survive, I'd say it's the chile that kills off the bad stuff but my little guy doesn't get it on his, nor kids everywhere. I believe a actually read an article months back about how people at family get together's blame mild family-wide food poisoning on mayo in salads left out but that it's normally something else, like the turkey or dressing (examples, I can't remember) and that mayo is pretty stable for longer periods of time. Anyhoo, I guess that could explain it. ALSO, the products they use here on the carts are all the cheapest available so I don't imagine that there's a lot of real animal fats/eggs/milk being actually doled out. More likely a lot of oil and salt. :D

Good observation btw! I do like a sleuth :D

Tony M said...

Yeah, it's confusing. On the USA side mayo has to be refrigerated, on the Mexican side it can be left out.
