Where to go for Champurrado

I have heard about this delicious chocolate-based atole for some time and would love to find some authentic Mexican restaurants or delis or sidewalk carts that sell it. I searched this site and only found one reference to Tulcingo Deli. Does anyone have any secret spots or hints on where I can find it?

  1. It's summer, when it gets cold again it will most likely show up at your favorite taqueria.

    1. Fast and Fresh Tacos on Hoyt north of Atlantic has a handwritten sign taped to the register saying they have it.

        i like the champurrados that they sell at the hawaiian pizza/taco joint on the southwest corner of northern and 84th in jackson heights. but they only sell it during cold weather months. also try the api, which is a bolivian purple corn hot drink and is available at any bolivian place. there's also a nice hot drink from ecuador, called morrocho, i think, available during the winter from any ecuadoran place, made with raisins and rice and milk and cinnamon.
