With the internet being the place where all things meet, it's sometimes hard to discover a totally new and unique place to go visit in your city. The good thing is that it's not impossible for DFW! The Piña Loca Fruteria in Dallas has different elote creations that will blow your mind. The shop also has loaded fruits like tasty pineapple halves that are filled with candies, nuts, and gummies, taking snacks to a level that you would have never even imagined.
The shop veers away a little from the traditional elote. While they do offer the original elote with chili power and mayonnaise, you also get the option of having your corn dipped in a variety of crushed chips. some of those chips include Hot Cheetos, Doritos, Takis, and Tostitos. They also offer elote chorreado callejero which consists of corn, Doritos, Hot Cheetos, melted cheese, and lime!
You'll find that the shop also has a selection of alcoholic beverages with a twist. One of those is their heavenly Smirnoff Green Apple in a jar with pieces of mango and tons of both Mexican and American candies. Treats at this shop range from $2.50 to $10. The elote falls at around $5 but can be more or less depending on the type and size.
The shop is open from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday through Friday and from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. You can visit their Instagram page where they have a number you can text to place orders before you even arrive.
