Corn from San Antonio's Market Square

Elote en Vaso

Man, I must be visiting all of the wrong places in San Antonio. I came down to Market Square, or El Mercado, as it was supposed to run some kind of Hispanic festivals. But it turned out to be just as touristy as the River Walk, with store after store of souvenir shops lining the walkways.

There was some food, but one had to pay tourist prices too, like this $4 cup of Elote en Vaso. Granted, it tasted great as it was dressed up with butter, cheese, cayenne pepper, and lemon juice. But I noticed thus stuff for sale at local supermarket chain H-E-B where the same sized cup would have cost maybe just a dollar or so.
