BEST new restaurants of the decade: Honorable Mention, Huaraches Moroleon

From our BEST new restaurants of the decade feature:

Opening on the edge of East Urbana in an unassuming restaurant space previously home to Sweet Betsy’s a million years ago, Huaraches Moroleon is now truly a neighborhood staple. It serves a menu not dissimilar from any in this particular category around town, but it’s just that the food here is better than the rest of them.

Plus, when you sit down, you are greeted with warm chips and not one or two salsas, but four housemade salsas. The service is friendly and precise. The place is quaint and weird, but in all the right ways. And, they serve American breakfast too — a good one! — alongside traditional Mexican morning stews like pozole and menudo. It’s truly a very good restaurant, and makes the east end of Urbana feel more cohesive because of it. (Seth Fein)
