This cantina originated in Ensenada, Mexico, and it is the birthplace of the margarita. The dish that goes best with that famous beverage here is the one that chef Noe Alcala says gets its name from “the street carts in the corners of the plaza selling corn” in Ensenada. The appetizer/side is grilled white corn brushed with mayo butter and covered with cotija cheese, and it’s quickly gaining its own fame. $4.95, Mandalay Place, 553-0123.
