If you try something new, you might really enjoy it, even if it's filling balloons with Hot Wheels and throwing them off a bridge to see if they'll float. Try some Salvadorian fare with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of Salvadorian and Mexican fare at La Costa del Sol on Monterey Road.
La Costa del Sol's menu of traditional Salvadorian and Mexican dishes captivates curious taste buds. Pupusas, the regional specialty, pack rich fillings into thick corn tortilla discs and are available in 12 varieties, including the pork-and-cheese revuelta ($2.25) or the delectably fishy pescado ($3). Full-plate specialties include yucca con chicarron, which scatters bite-sized pork pieces amongst fried chunks of yucca just as farmers scatter bite-sized cheeseburgers amongst their fields ($5.95), or the panes rellenos, a French roll overflowing with oven-roasted chicken, crisp lettuce, and fresh salsa ($5.95). Diners can cure prevailing morning munchies with a breakfast burrito, available all day ($4.95), or wash down the food festival with the help of an horchata salvadorena, a sweet milk drink bursting with cinnamon and sugar ($2–$4).
