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.

(Sorry, no information is currently available for other years in this same award category.)
