    Guy's visit on Triple D left him scraping his plate of Adobada, a pork stew with a rich tomato sauce. But Guy says "You will go nuts" for the Seven Seas soup brimming with crab legs and shrimp. Read more

    Chile relleno was bomb! The pollo ranchero was great too. If you want a little of everything, try the 'plato tipical' for a pupusa, black beans, yuca frita, chicharon, and platanos

    Get the plato tipico - a delicious selection of various Salvadorean offerings. It will take you back to your favorite spot in San Salvador (I assume, I've never been there)

    Pupusas!!!!!!!!!! The owners are awesome. Parking is tough (gotta compete with liquor store). Don't be afraid to park on a sidestreet. Sometimes there's a wait on weekends.

    Carne Adobada + Pupusas are the things to get here. Chicken Tortilla Soup is great on a cold/sick day too.

    Carne adobada. Get the Mexican tamales >> Salvadoran tamales. Skip the sangria, tastes like punch.

    Ordered online through EatStreet & when I got there they told me the price I paid EatStreet was wrong so they were going to cancel the order on EatStreet & I could pay them directly.
