Corn Soup w/ Poblano and Fish Taquito

Celia Sin-Tien Cheng

The soup special when I went to the Itzocan Cafe was corn with poblano peppers. I wasn’t going to order it but when I passed by the kitchen on the way to the restroom and saw the fresh ears of corn I knew I had to try it out. The soup arrived as a light creamy green with speckles of poblano throughout. With every sip the poblano kicks in toward the end of the taste so it comes as a pleasant surprise in every spoonful. The overall effect was very refreshing and kept me wanting more. This dish really reflects the food at Itzocan – always an unexpected sensation that keeps you wanting more.
