La Casita Pupuseria
The chefs at La Casita Pupuseria pull their recipes from El Salvador, a country where fresh shrimp and savory meats are in no short supply. To craft their signature pupusa—a traditional Salvadoran snack that enticed the palate of reporters from the Washington Post—they sculpt masa into perfectly round balls before packing it with cheese, meats, and veggies. They carefully pinch off excess dough so they can procure an ideal balance of masa and filling, as well as secretly help the Pillsbury Doughboy gather enough material to eventually build himself a wife, finally. The skilled cooks sizzle the plump discs on a griddle before plating them with fresh pickled cabbage and tomato salsa.
Once plates of warm pupusas have been delivered to hungry diners, chefs turn their attention to orders of crisp enchiladas and fresh seafood ceviches. They also whip up a variety of natural juices and fresh licuados, favoring juicy slices of mango, papaya, and mamey.
It was DELISH! Beyond, reminded me of my Abuelita's cooking and that is pretty fantastic. I've recommended to many and they keep thanking me too!Yamileth E., Yelp, 6/1/12
I really like the Carne Asada and the fresh made Horchatas. But you can't go here and pass up the Pupusas, they have a lot of varieties to chooseTJ B., Yelp, 5/17/12
