Cheap Eats 2011: Sabor Salvadoreño

     
Tags:

Way out in Aloha, off a nondescript road and sharing a building with Martindale’s Home Theater, is a barely marked hole in the wall serving authentic Salvadoran cuisine. Any restaurant that hard to find has to be good, and Sabor Salvadoreño lives up to its obscurity. As with all Central American eateries, any evaluation must start with the pupusas ($2), which for the uninitiated are essentially quesadillas stuffed with beans, cheese or meat. Freshly made, theirs are among the best in the city. Moving down the menu, try the rellenos de pacaya, an edible flower battered in egg and topped with tomato salsa, or the pan relleno de pollo ($4), a knee-buckling chicken stew sandwich that literally overflows out of the bun. Yes, they also serve hamburgers for conservative gringos, but seriously, who would want a plain old burger after putting in all the effort of actually finding the damn place?
