Antojitos is jam-packed with Mexican small plate ideas, gathered from the homes and the streets of Mexico, where the authors have traveled. These “snacks” that were designed to be the bite that holds you over in between meals are perfect for parties—especially because they provide a good base for holiday cocktailing. At La Palapa in the East Village I tried the Crepas de Huitlacoche, which are corn fungus crepes—hearty, filling and delicious (photo). Head over to their east or west village locations for a NYC escape to Mexico City. Go with a crowd, the portions are enormous!
