  1. I really like this place. We haven’t been there in a few years. Looks like they fixed up the front too. My favorite pupusa is the ‘revuelta’, which has everything in it – cheese, pork, beans, loroco. I’m excited that they have mushroom now too! My daughter really likes that chopped up fruit drink. We just might visit this place again soon (two week fall break coming right up!). I’m glad you guys tried this place. I have to try the other place in City Heights and Escondido (got a coupon for that one!).

      Jake likes the one in City Heights a little bit better, I would say that they are pretty darn similar. This place has mushrooms though, so it gets a slight edge in my book. If we ever get our butts up to Escondido again we’ll have to check out the other El Salvador places. Good stuff!

    It’s been there forever and sort of a taco shop in that you walk up and order, but things are brought to your table.

    I love pupusas but never have ventured looking for a place here in San Diego (I usually buy them premade and reheat them at home) so I think I’ll have to check out this restaurant. And the drink sounds fabulous. Nice post!

  4. Went here a month ago and loved it! Pretty much ordered the same things you did haha.

    Pupusas !!! I don’t think I’ve ever had them in SD – or actually, I am not sure if I’ve ever had one EVER! I’ve seen them on food tv in competitions and stuff and have always wanted to try one. I don’t know where Grant Hill is though. Is there parking 🙁

      Grant Hill is like, just east of Downtown (in the ‘hood, yo!). It’s just street parking there, but it wasn’t too bad. There’s another place in City Heights off Univeristy next to the 15 that has it’s own lot if you want to try that place too. Both places are good! I care about if there’s parking, too. If parking is too difficult then I don’t want to go haha!
