Review: El Pollo Loco - Sweet Corn Cake

Another new premium side at El Pollo Loco, the Sweet Corn Cake is a corn meal cake with corn kernels baked in. The price is in line with the other new premium sides at $1.79 for a small and $3.99 for a large.

I would best describe El Pollo Loco's Sweet Corn Cake as similar to corn bread but mealier (like a tamale) and not as cohesive. It's generally sweeter than most corn bread I've eaten with a little bit of honey flavor.

As you can see from the picture, it's not really a cake; it doesn't hold together at all really and you couldn't pick it up and eat it except in very small pieces.

It's not bad and interesting enough but I think I'd rather just eat some corn bread.

  1. Someone sure likes their corn! Also, what COULDN'T be turned into "cake"? Haha.

  2. Its actually a common side in Mexican dishes. I think the review might have had a little bit of an ignorant stand point

  3. True but there are certain things I don't think I'd like so much in cake form such as meat or spinach.

  4. what the hell is the point of that?

  5. my kids like it thanks for the recipe.
