$10.25 • Huarache al pastor

Although you might be more familiar with huaraches as a leather sandal made popular during the hippie generation, these days I prefer to eat my huaraches. El Morelense in West Valley delivers a tremendously good huarache al pastor. The fried, shoe-shaped dough is similar to sope and comes topped with a generous portion of tender, slow-roasted pork (al pastor) that's sliced off the pineapple-topped spit and crisped on the flattop grill before being loaded with shredded lettuce, avocado and crema and a sprinkling of concha cheese. It's a meal for two, if not more, that's as visually memorable as it is delicious.

El Morelense • 2470 S. Redwood Road, Unit #104, West Valley City; 801-347-1378. Open Tuesday-Saturday, 10 a.m.-8 p.m.; Sunday, 10 a.m.–6 p.m.; closed Monday. For more information, visit http://www.elmorelense.com.
