Rudy’s Gourmet Mexican Cuisine

I  frequent Rudy’s Gourmet Mexican Cuisine year-round, but I especially like going in the summertime when it feels like a cool oasis away from the heat. On my last visit, Rudy himself suggested I try Los Huaraches del Salto del Agua. As a rule, I always take advice from restaurant owners and employees alike, so I complied and ordered it, along with a Jarritos Lime soda. After loading up at the complimentary chips and salsa bar and taking a seat, my traditional dish (authentic to Mexico City) arrived. The large portion featured cooked, crispy corn dough (the “huarache”) with refried beans, green sauce, queso fresco, sour cream, salsa and meat (in my case, al pastor) piled on top. After one bite, I knew it would become my new go-to order. The crispy corn dough was a substantial part of the overall taste, as opposed to solely being a vessel for the dish. The al pastor—sweetened with pineapple juice and cooked over low heat for hours—complemented the other ingredients perfectly. I sipped my Jarritos and said an inner thanks to Rudy for his suggestion.
