One part of traveling that I enjoy is trying new food. While I was in El Salvador, I tried a traditional Salvadorian dish called pupusas–yummy. It’s like a stuffed corn tortilla. From what I saw it comes in three varieties: cheese (queso fresco); cheese and beans; and cheese, beans and beef. The last one was my favorite.
We went out for them twice, and the first time we ate them was at a Mister Donut. It was the fanciest Mister Donut I’ve seen with a multiple page menu that included not only doughnuts but also breakfast, lunch and dinner meals including a selection of traditional Salvadorian foods.
The pupusas and the Salvadorian horchata I had there were great.
Towards the end of my time in El Salvador, we took a trip to a pupuseria. Take a look at the video below to see how pupusas are made.
