The Review

Reviewed by: Jake and Jason de Paul

Juan and Rossy Murgula opened theird second market (first one in Kent) in the spring of 2008 featuring aisles and aisles of Mexican products, produce, meats, bakes goods, videosd and a restaurant. The dining area is the size of an office cubicle, the TV blares telenovelas, and silverware is scarce. But oh, the food. You won't find gooey moats of cheddar cheese here, or anything else distorted for the American palate. The tacos are soft corn tortillas topped with meats such as carne asada, chorizo, and tongue. Homemade salsa come on the side. The Jalisco-style gorditas are delicious, the huevos rancheros a revelation. Just close your eyes, point at the menu above the grill (currently don't have paper menus), and enjoy.

This Mexican market opens at 8 p.m. (sometimes 9 a.m.!) with chilaquiles and huevos rancheros on the menu, among other authentic delights. The huevos rancheros are a revelation with fried eggs sunny-side up, a thousand sliced jalapeños, tomato sauce with hot chilies and onion, served over two fried corn tortillas with homemade salsa and additional, soft darn tasty corn tortillas on the side. Exit the tiny dining space to the right if you don't want to see the meat counter in all its splendor.

La Huerta #2 made it all the way to the Spicy 16 in our Tournament of Tacos contest.
