Disneyland is not the happiest place on Earth. This is:
Welcome to La Michoacana Premium. Want to feel like a kid again? Just walk through the door.
Homemade ice cream? The best ever in so many flavors you could spend a year just tasting them. Mexican fruit pops? They will change your life. But the best, most improbable, guilty pleasure is not made of cream and sugar. It’s made with Doritos. Welcome to the Doriloco.
It is a party in a plastic chip bag. Long enjoyed as a street snack in Mexico urban areas, the Doriloco is a wildly inappropriate Mount Vesuvius thing of beauty beginning with Dorito nacho cheese chips as the foundation. Layered on top are shredded cabbage, avocado, Mexican crema, pico de gallo, pickled pig skin, hot sauce and Japanese peanuts (which are peanuts in a crunchy wheat flour shell flavored with soy sauce).
That’s the classic but you can get Dorilocos with any chip and any toppings. I am so committed to the Doriloco I have been to La Michoacana Premium twice this week. And today two of my boys joined me — King Daddy and the Millennial, the assistant director at the Community Resource Center.
I kind of giggle when I dive into the Doriloco but Mark and Jay were all serious. Or maybe they just had their mouths full.
And I am now miserable, partly because I ate almost an entire Doriloco and partly because when I go to La Michoacana Premium I cannot resist the ice cream and I’m not even a big ice cream fan.
But look at this!
That is their version of a banana split. How can you not want that?
If you live in the Nashville area and you are not eating your way up and down Nolensville Road you are missing the best food in this city at the most affordable prices. La Michoacana Premium. You don’t have to know how to pronounce it. You just have to go there.
