The El Salvadorans who live in the Mission head here for pupusas, stuffed cornmeal rounds that are more or less the hamburger of their homeland, usually filled with beans, cheese, or meat—sometimes in combination—and eaten with seasoned shredded cabbage (and is less than $2 apiece). The kitchen at this friendly, family-run place also makes the more unusual rice-flour pupusa, as well as other dishes popular in Central America, including seafood soup, tamales,
chicharrones (fried pork skins), and yucca. Pupusas are made to order, so don't come here when you're in a rush.
