Nicolás Lizares – Maker of Fine Huaraches from Tapalpa, JaliscoPosted: July 22, 2013
Probably the most well known Huarachero in Mexico, with a client list of many famous “Tapatios” (Guadalajarans); Nicolás Lizares crafts Huaraches from his richly decorated ‘Taller’ in the historical mountain resort town of Tapalpa, Jalisco.
Like all fine Huaracheros you cannot find Sr. Lizares’s Huaraches in stores. He only makes Huaraches to order and during my brief visit he had some “Recargado” and “Petatillo” Brick Weave Huaraches awaiting pick-up.
If ever you’re near Guadalajara, be sure to visit the beautiful cobble stoned mountain town of Tapalpa and the workshop of Huarachero Nicolás Lizares.
The workshop is located on Zaragoza 16, Tapalpa, Jalisco, 049340, Mexico. Tel. 343.432.0376
Although I did not ask him about it, its worth noting that if you would like to purchase/order a pair does of Huaraches, but do not have time to return to pick them up most Huaracheros offer 2 options:-
1. To ship the finished Huaraches to the customer.
2. The unspoken option of selling an already finished pair which is awaiting pickup by another customer. Because the poached pair can be made again the following day.
