A Taste of El Salvado ... – My husband and I have been huge fans of Pupuseria for about three years now. We tried it on a whim one evening and have loved it ever since. Our favorite menu items are the carne asada torte which is HUGE and comes loaded with fresh cut avocado, lettuce, tomato, cheese, jalapenos, fresh lime, and their own homemade hot sauce (You can have yours made to your own taste though), If you order taco's, you'll be in for a nice surprise. This isn't your Taco Bell taco! Very fresh flavorings including cilantro, white cheese, avocado, onion and a splash of lime. You can get a variety of meats in them as well. Wonderful! A staple of El Salvador is the traditional pupusa which is made of a thick, hand-made corn tortilla that is usually filled with a blend of cheese (queso). Theirs is mouth-watering. The fried plantains are to DIE for. Served with fresh sour cream it's a fruit dessert made in heaven
PLEASE try this little place. I overheard someone say "It's a dive, I'm not going there." Rest assured it is clean, neat organized and the have all the inspection permits proudly displayed. They took over an out of business Dunkin' Donuts shop so some of the strikingly pink marketing props are still evident.
You will not be dissappointed, I promise you!
Delicious! This is a fun place to try new things! – At first my husband and I were a bit nervous to go in, because we didn't know whether or not we would need to use our very meager Spanish so we could order. Silly us! The lady at the counter spoke perfect English. We got two pupusas each, plus a big order of fried plantains with sour cream and two fresh Mexican juice beverages (Agua Fresca de Melon and Tamarindo juice). Total came to $15.08 with tax. We took them to go back to our house to eat on the back porch. It was so fun! By the way, there is plenty of table space to eat inside the restaurant, and the decor and stuff offered for sale in the store is super entertaining. RECOMMENDED!
