About Us / La Newyorkina History: Paletas are an enormous part of Mexican food culture. Every town, no matter how small, has a paleteria! Since paletas were developed in the 1940s in the state of Michoacan, most paleterias in Mexico bear the name La Michoacana (The Girl from Michoacan) or some variation thereof. Our name, La Newyorkina (The New Yorker), is a reference to that tradition.\n\nWe prepare our products in an artisan way, using the best ingredients we can find utilizing seasonal, local ingredients whenever possible. We believe that New Yorkers will appreciate the full, intense flavor of our preparations and our commitment to quality.
