For me, one of the quintessential summer foods is roasted corn. And now I don’t have to wait for the next barbecue or summer festival to get some. I’ve found three roasted corn stands in the Seattle area that make succulent summer corn even better by slathering it with margarine, mayo, spices, lemon and parmesan cheese.
The first stand I encountered is located next to Tony’s Market in West Seattle (9050 35th Ave. SW, Seattle 98126). Check out pics on the West Seattle Blog.
A few miles east in White Center, there’s another roasted corn stand next to Taqueria La Fondita #2, one of the best taco trucks around (9811 15th Ave. SW, Seattle 98106). Some of the workers at the corn stand were eating watermelon with the same spice mix they put on the corn. I’ll have to try that!
On Beacon Hill, there is Roasted Corn El Oaxaqueno located in the parking lot of MacPherson’s Fruit and Produce (4500 15th Ave S., Seattle 98108). The Tofu Hunter has a good review and photos of this stand.
