Dish of the Week: El Morelense’s huarache al pastor

First Published May 23 2014 01:01 am • Last Updated May 23 2014 09:18 am

$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.
