LA Weekly's Description

In Mexico City restaurants like El Huarache Azteca may be thick on the ground, but in Highland Park, there is nothing like it on a Saturday afternoon, a cramped storefront filled with families guzzling house-made horchata, tepache and watermelon drink out of huge foam cups, hovering over the few oilcloth-covered tables inside, gathering tacos and sopes by the dozen to bring home to their families, and coaxing burning-hot huitlacoche quesadillas - fried turnovers stuffed with musky, jet-black corn fungus - out of the stone-faced woman who mans the fry cart outside the entrance. What you have come for is, of course, the huarache, a flat, concave trough of fried masa mounded with beans, cultured cream and meat. See full review.

    authentic mexican food, that is a amazingly tasty. Every thing on the menu is good, but on Sunday's they have a grill outside were they make fresh fried quesadias that are to die for.

    The Tinga tostadas are just as great as the huaraches.
