El Hub and I were in the mood to try something new last weekend, so we hit up El Huarache Loco, a Mexican restaurant in Larkspur in southern Marin.
I ordered a hurache (a sandal-shaped corn masa cake filled with beans topped with salsa, cilantro, crema, queso fresco and onions) with nopales (cactus) and a jicama salad (jicama, bell peppers, cabbage and onions with a pineapple vinaigrette).
El Hub ordered the chicken mole “El Huarache Loco.”
We also ordered chips and salsa to share.
Two-second roundup: meh, just okay. El Hub wasn’t crazy about his dish (the sauce to him tasted “off”) and my hurache was pretty bland. I did like the jicama salad. Crunchy and light, and the flavors were on point.
It surprised me that they actually charged for chips and salsa (really, now?). It would’ve been nice if it was complimentary.
I may go back for the jicama salad if I’m craving it something fierce and too lazy to make it myself. Maybe.
