Everybody loves corn like they serve it in Mexico City. Almost anywhere in the center of town, or near most markets, you can smell the seductive aroma of charred cornhusks coming from vendor carts. No matter where you’re from or who you are, the grilled sweet corn painted with butter and a little mayonnaise and salty Cotija cheese will seduce you.
