La Casita Pupuseria #DCEATS

On this second visit , I decided to take a bunch of out-of-towners to sample Salvadorean food. This place fits the bill for a hole in the wall mom and pop store that knows what they are doing. The area is flooded with latin american options and many have gotten used the plethora of options when it comes to food from the C4.

Its always fun to watch your food being made live ! Make sure you stand near the counter while your pupusas are thrown (yes literally) on the grill.

I ordered the loroco bud , beans & ayote squash options. I also ordered the corn tamal and the bean tamal along with some coconut macroons , salvadorean cheesecake & what could only be described as caramel fudge (on the left of the counter in a plastic box).

The loroco & squash pupusa’s are have a nice bite to them. The pupusa cover itself is thin enough to tear at places yet strong enough to hold most of the stuffing. The leaked cheese gets griddled and crusty 🙂 The slaw served with these pupusa’s didnt quite hit the mark and needed a dash of vinegar / lime.

The staff here are really friendly & the food nice & cheap ! a huge atol-de-elote , 2xmacroons , 2xfudge, 4 pupusas , 2 tamals cost about 20$
