Who knew that a masa patty shaped like the bottom of a leather woven shoe could taste so divine? Apparently, the patrons watching huaraches being made to order at this tucked-away Mexican outpost do. In this cafeteria-style dining room, regulars pounce on blistered chile rellenos, giant meat-stuffed tortas and hand-slapped sopes. Chicken soup and savory chicken mole keep them traipsing back for more.
