Pam's Playlist: Rum Raisin Paleta at La Michoacana



Justin Fox Burks

I’m going out on a limb to say that the rum raisin paleta is the best Mexican ice pop at La Michoacana on Summer near Graham, but I’ve only tried three other flavors: lime, kiwi, and strawberry and cream.

On any day of the week (52 weeks a year!), about 60 flavors are in rotation, and owner Rafael Gonzalez is happy to run through the list: cream pops like butter pecan, mocha, and pine nut, or icy pops like watermelon, pineapple, and cucumber and chili. Made only with fruit and cream, paletas are refreshing and natural. They also are a great deal: $2 for a regular paleta or get one dipped in chocolate, sprinkles, or chopped nuts for an extra dollar.

The August issue of Memphis magazine is the annual City Guide, a compilation of entertainment, people, and places that help make Memphis a great place to work and live. Highlighting a single restaurant for the issue seemed impossible, so I came up with a playlist of my top-10 dishes of the year. To help plan food-friendly weekends, I'll be posting my picks on Memphis Stew. The photos for the playlist were taken by Justin Fox Burks, who also writes a great food blog called the Chubby Vegetarian.
