Foodies can’t seem to get enough of chamangos, which is a chilled Mexican food drink that combines sweet and spicy goodness. While this drink may be rising in popularity, authentic chamangos is hard to find. Luckily, there’s Las Palmitas Fresh Fruit. The small shop, which sells other Mexican food favorites like esquite and tamales, is easy to miss but worth the trip.
