Toloache

Discover the taste of mold. 

Every day, probably even every minute, some food item with mold is thrown out.

Just how much kitchen clean-up is necessary is a question Toloache has begun to ask. This Mexican restaurant serves up a delicacy punctuated with a growth most people are not accustomed. The corn-mold tacos, called huitlacoche, have become a crowd favorite and draw visitors for a quick bite and a drink.
