Cold Michoacan Treats in San Diego
I found it finally!!!!!
While doing some recon on Market St just east of the 805 I found the Nieve de Elote (Corn Ice Cream) I’ve been seeking! Nieveria Tocumbu is going to be my new spot for Ice Cream. The owner hails from Tocumbo Michoacan and started his modest business 4 years ago.
All Ice cream is homemade, and they have a huge selection of some interesting flavors. I opted for the Mamey and Elote. I was so focused on the Elote I did not get to sample more of their extensive flavors.
Its all about the Nieve and Paletas here however they offer so much more
Raspados, Tostilocos, Diablitos, Mangoneadas. Licuados, Aguas Jugos, Smoothies, Escamochas, Fruit Salads, Frutilocos, Takilocos and even Tostadas de Cueritos
I sampled the Mageoneados which is two scoops of mango ice cream, chunks of mango, chamoy, chili and chile powder, liquid chile and a stick of spicy tamarindo.
I also tried a Strawberry Coconut Raspado which I probably won’t be ordering here again. Honey Banana in National City has the lockdown on Raspados for me.
If you’re looking to experience some interesting flavors of Ice Cream this is your spot. Service is great and the place is super clean with ample seating.

The more I go to this place the more I love it. This weekend I ordered my usual elote, but after tasting KRs guayaba it was either fight KR for his or order my own. The guayaba is out of control. I get cravings for this now.
I also had an amazing paleta de cajeta
We keep begging the owner for rose petal flavor so he said he is going to make some next weekend!
If you check this place out they let you try before you buy, don't be shy. .
This place rules!
One of the greatest new finds in SD courtesy Masa Assassin in our journey to find authentic Mexican regional cuisine.
The place definitely is just as good - if not better in many ways - than TJs Tepoznieves only a smaller selection.
The elote is the best I;ve had - creamy corny soo good. The guayaba scent and taste is near as sexy as the rose petal of tepoznieves. Cucumber agua fresca is even offered.
Don't miss out on experiencing this jewel. Its fantastic - thanks MA for bringing me along!
I checked this place out with my girlfriend yesterday. We were very impressed. I tried the mamey, elote and a yellow cherry flavor. I think I liked the yellow cherry the best, but they were all good flavors. My gf was crazy for their pistachio. While they were rich, the ice cream didn't seem as heavy as I was expecting, which is a plus. This place is a great find. Nice Job!
I went back this weekend. They don’t make Garlic or Mole Rojo. They actually make Rose Petal but only seasonal, the owner said he would have some in December. I recently tried some Rose Petal at Tepoznieves in TJ and it’s definitely an intriguing flavor.
I had Rompope and Elote. The Ice Cream here is so Rich and Creamy you can’t go wrong with any choice.
Most people seemed to be going crazy over the paletas, which seem to be their specialty.
Can you comment on the other flavors available? I'd like to know if they have anything that's not found at the nieveria/paleteria in Escondido (theirs include elote, arroz, queso, mamey, guayaba, coco, menta, nuez, mango, vainilla, fresa, and a couple other standards).
