The 25-year-old Mexican spot on York Blvd. in Highland Park has a fantastic menu filled with everything from tortas to tostadas, but our favorite dish here is the namesake huarache. It’s a long piece of fried masa dough with smashed pinto beans in the middle and topped with grated cheese, a slightly bitter cream, and your choice of meat. We particularly love the buttery carne asada, but you frankly can’t go wrong with any choice here.
