El Huarache Loco stand in the Alemany Farmers’ Market provides a taste of home–if you’re from Mexico City, that is. Huaraches, handmade from fresh masa before your eyes, are fried up with just the right touch of grease, says marlon. Quesadillas made with squash blossoms are wonderful, melty and hot. Everything tastes right to folks from Mexico City–even the mole is reddish and tastes of almonds, like it does back home. Try one of their aguas frescas with your food, or check out their cafe de olla, made with piloncillo for a nice molasses flavor.
