Antojitos, literally "little cravings", are masa-based fried appetizers typical of Mexican cuisine. Masa is dough made from corn or wheat flour. Jonathan Gold savors tasty antojitos around Los Angeles. He raves about the delicious huaraches (the word used in Mexico for "sandals"), fried masa layered with beans, meat, lettuce, cream and homemade salsa at El Huarache Azteca #1 in Highland Park; wonderful potato tacos at El Atacor #11 near Dodgers Stadium; avocado salsa and flautas (corn tortilla bigger than taquitos) at Ciro's; mulitas (hand-made tortilla sandwich filled with cheese, guacamole and meat) at La Taquiza near USC; and fantastic breakfast chilaquiles (tortilla wedges sauteed in various sauces) at La Casita Mexicana.
