Where to go for Champurrado

lissa Jul 13, 2008 03:17 PM

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?

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

      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.
