Get me CORN!

My new favorite go-to restaurant to take visiting guests of NYC, is Cafe Habana.  A Cuban eatery deep in Nolita with an 'outpost' in Fort Green, Brooklyn.

The savory secret of this wonderful land of nosh?  The corn.

Oh god.  The corn.

The menu describes it as:
Grilled Corn Mexican Style, served with chili powder, lime & cheese

My mouth describes it as flavor heaven that induces moans, groans, and cheese dripping down my chin.  I may have licked the plate.

I believe there is a mayo concoction buttered on the corn, but it's not gross.  No.  It's amazing.  With the cheese.  And the chili.  And the grilled, good corn goodness.

I can't even do it justice.

I am not kidding you, I just felt compelled to lick my computer screen.

Lesson here?  When in New York, head to Prince and Elizabeth for some corn heaven.  Be prepared for a wait though, so avoid rush times.  Plus you might run into a celebrity!  If that's your thing.

Oh.  And the other stuff is pretty good too.  Very strong frozen mojitos.  Gooey Cuban sandwiches full of pickles, cheese (theme here?) and ham.  Rice, beans and spicy chicken.

Trust me, you won't be disappointed.  And if you bring your friends, they will think you are super cool and in the know . . .
