Every since my graduation party in Baja, I have been on a quest to find huaraches that are as amazing as the ones I ate in Mexico. My search brought me to El Huarache Azteca, a Jonathan Gold recommendation. In fact, there are plenty of high profile reviews up on the walls of this small establishment.
This place is definitely a hole in the wall (my favorite) and it makes you wonder how it even managed a B rating. However, it is crucial to look past that in order to enjoy your meal. With Maná, Chente, and Gloria Trevi on rotation in the background, I ate a carne asada huarache, agua de melon, and a taco de tripas.
The huarache was very good, and only cost $2.50! The taco was very good as well.
The huarache was on the small side, so you’ll probably have to order more than one to get full. Overall, it was a very good meal, and I enjoyed everything, but they aren’t quite on par with the ones I ate in Baja, so I guess I will have to keep searching. Having said that, I will definitely be back to El Huarache Azteca.
