Yummy local Mexican-Salvadorian find!

Price:  $7-13

Food:  Mexican-Salvadorian cuisine is made just a few feet away from your table in this open diner-style cozy restaurant.  Everything is made fresh.  We had no idea what to order, and one of the two owners (both the sweetest ladies) gave us some suggestions.  I had a Horchata, which is a milk-cinnamon-chocolatey drink that’s sent from heaven.  They’re known for their pupusas, which are like thick tortillas stuffed with cheese and other goodness (beans, meat, or loroco).  We tried some of each kind.  Loroco is an edible flower, and those were our favorite.  We also tried the tamales and tacos, which were delicious!  The beans and rice are fabulous as well.  Oddly enough, there was a slaw-like side garnish which was very spicy–and was yummy enough to have as a meal itself.

Atmosphere:  The diner is very small, perhaps 5-6 tables.  It is very casual, and they also have take out available.

Service:  We’ve been a few times now and one of the owners (if not both) have always been there and wait on us.  They’ve offered different things for us to try and are eager to share their food and culture with anyone who will let them.  We will definitely be frequenting this place!

Tidbits:  Private parking.  There have been coupons on Restaurant.com for this place, if you’d like to try it out with a little less $ risk.  You’ll be back.  :)
