Happy National Pupusa Day! November 10th is the day, and there’s only one way to celebrate, and that’s with a pupusa in each hand, or two! To help you out, we’ve put together a list of a few places where you can find pupusas in the Bold City.
If you’re unfamiliar with this Salvadoran delicacy: a pupusa, not to be confused with an arepa, is a Salvadoran street food made with cornmeal or rice flour then stuffed with a savory filling. The fillings you’ll typically see are beef, beans, cheese, and pork. When served, the pupusas are topped with a red salsa and curtido, which is a fermented cabbage relish that includes carrots, onions, spices, and garlic — a must-have!
All you really need to know is that pupusas are like a heartfelt hug from a stranger on a day when you didn’t even know you needed a hug. Let us know where your go-to pupusa spot is.
