  1. hi mary – this is one of those places i’ve been meaning to try but haven’t yet…

    i really like pupusas…my favorite is the revuelta (mixed with pork, cheese and beans and loroco).

    your food photos are fantastic and i love the “above” shot!

    you should also try el salvadoreno (on imperial ave)…i’m sure you’d like their stuff there too.

      Hi CC – Mmm, pupusas are maybe my new favorite thing. I totally want to check out a few other places! Thanks for the tip! I read about one in Golden Hills, too, I think but don’t remember the name of it… I think I saw it on Yelp.

      Okay, I just looked it up, it was El Salvadoreno I read about it! Grant Hills, not Golden! I’ll definitely check it out!

  2. sometimes you can get pupusa in the mexican markets. one of my friends got some in northgate (don’t remember which one), and they also sell it at the food window at mercado internacional 2000 (in CV).

    Definitely at the Northgate on 43rd at the 805.

    There is a pupuseria in El Cajon; it is very good, tiny and has one Yelp review in 2012, after having been there forever:http://mmm-yoso.typepad.com/mmmyoso/2010/12/pupuseria-salvadoreña-mexican-food-a-re-visit.html
