      Jeff, I've got a paletas place for you (not homemade, but commercial and pretty good).

      LOTS of flavors too ... probably about fifteen or twenty flavors to choose from -- $2 or so each IIRC.
      It's an Italian pastry shop run by Mexicans. The awning that adorns the place is from a previous owner and these new folks have no ties to the name. The location is the former Zeppieri Bakery / La Dolce Bakery space on East Tremont Avenue at Westchester Square. I think they are dba Lazaro Bakery Inc. Their Mexican bread (conchas) is cooked fresh daily.
      The Italian pastries are very good also.

        Tortilleria Nixtamal has, though they're not homemade. I think they're imported from Michoacan. They're pretty good though, and they have a wide selection of flavors - during the summer at least.

          That's right! I did have one from there a long time ago. but you know I'd love to find one at a place taht's more of a find. Nixtamal isn't challenging enough - what a loser I am....

          Cholula Bakery on Roosevelt Ave 88-06
          They sell the exact same ones from Fernandez, PLUS they sell others of the Sley brand.

          I also found nieves today (which are essentially mexican slushies), it was 3764 90th St at Miravillas. I had Limon. It was awesome.
