Historic Huaraches in Stafford

A taco stand yields an awesome breakfast and the solution to a Mexican food mystery

The huaraches all have names here, which I imagine were borrowed from the Mexico City restaurant. The "Paisano" has simple avocado slices on it, and "el Hijo del Jefe" (the boss's son) is covered with steak. The prices range from $3.50 to $6.50, depending on the topping.

El Huarache Azteca in Mexico City is also famous for its consommé. Huarache Azteca Express in Stafford has that, too. The restaurant also sells aguas frescas on weekends, as well as broth by the cup.

The falling-apart-tender stewed lamb is sold by the pound, and it's not to be missed. You wrap the steaming, shredded meat in hot corn tortillas, garnish with a little onion and cilantro, and dip your tacos in lamb broth. The meat is as soft as butter, and the flavor is spectacular.

For more authentic huaraches, you'll have to travel to Mexico City.
