At this point it feels like Highland Park has a new restaurant opening every week, but plenty of old standbys also remain. Case in point - El Huarache Azteca. The 25-year-old Mexican spot on York Blvd. has a fantastic menu across the board, but the move here is the namesake huarache. Essentially a giant Mexican flatbread, this doughy surfboard from the gods is layered with a meat of your choice (get the carne asada), beans, grated cheese, two sauces, and a fistful of shredded lettuce. Surf’s up.
