El Huarache Azteca

One of my coworkers needed some work done on his truck in Highland Park. We coordinated a carpool that took us past El Huarache Azteca on York Avenue, and we got to experience this novel new dish and restaurant.

A huarache (yes, shaped like the sandal) is a masa-base shell topped with roasted chicken, beans, cilantro, crema, cojita cheese and onions. This is the Super Huarache Mojado with both salsa verde and salsa roja for a dual flavor explosion. YUM!! Now I know why Jonathan Gold picked them as one of "LA's 99 essentials!"

There are several other Highland Park spots I'm curious to try. Who wants to explore with me?!
