Flor de calabaza/Zucchini flowers

Anyone know a place to get quesadillas de flor de calabaza (zucchini flower quesadillas)? 'Tis the season and they are oh so delicious, and although I've occasionally seen them on menus in NYC, I've never actually seen a zucchini flower quesadilla.

  1. cafe el portal on elizabeth st usually has them.

    1. I've had those at tehuitzingo, the mexican deli/taqueria on west 48th and 10th avenue. they also have a great tongue taco if you're interested and also a huitlacoche quesadilla as well.

        The ones at Tehuitzingo are delish but they are from a can. Crema on 17th between 6th and 7th sometimes has them on their vegetable plate. Also, the union square market was full of them this week.
