This Mexican-style seafood cocktail of shrimp, octopus, and squid (small, $5) was soaked in clam juice, tomato juice, and a half-lime squeezed a la minute, garnished with cilantro, raw onion, and hot sauce, and crowned with avocado. Like many customers, even before I crossed to the shady side of the street, I didn't wait to dig in.
Note: At the time of my visit this street vendor was doing business under the awning of Elmhurst's Glober Market (sic), across from Clement Clarke Moore Homestead Park and its ample seating. Reportedly he's since moved to Roosevelt Ave., where there's much more walk-by traffic, to be sure, but standing room only.
