Pupusas

One of our most popular dishes! A friend described this to one of our staff members as the southern version of a cornbread sandwich. Well, it’s kins like that! A pups is a tradition Salvadoran dish made of a thick, handmade corn tortilla dough. It’s filled with cheese and other goodness (pork, chicken, beans, etc.), then riddled and served with a hot sauce and curtido, a slightly fermented cabbage slaw. By the way, every November 13 is National Papusa Day in El Salvador.
