Kool Tortas, a Mexican sandwich and taco shop at 4547 S. Sixth Ave., has closed and a new restaurant called Los Guarachez de Don Shuy has opened there. It serves Mexican food and is decorated sort of like a taco stand.
Gurarachez (which means "sandals" and is also spelled huaraches) are a popular street food in Mexico City. They are made by frying masa formed into the shape of a sandal and topping it with beans, meat, sauce, cheese and vegetables.
We haven’t eaten at the new restaurant yet, but will be back soon with a full report.
