We wish we could walk into any convenience store and come out with a cob of Mexican street corn. La Tienda Mexicana El Oaxaque is a tiny bodega with hand-painted signs and a big rainbow umbrella that sells mostly groceries and dried grasshoppers, but they have a cart in the front where you can order elotes on a stick or in a cup. It’s $3, incredibly satisfying, and goes perfectly with a few slices of fresh mango topped with chile, which you can also get here.

Suggested by our writers
You know Paseo, but Un Bien is where you want to be. It’s where the old owners work now, and the Caribbean sandwiches in Ballard are the city’s best.
Tacos Chukis isn’t a secret anymore, but it’s still great. Hit the Cap Hill spot for fast, cheap Mexican food.
