Pupusa Heaven

Recently I tried Pupusas (thick, stuffed handmade tortillas found primarily in El Salvador) from two Atlanta locations: Rincon Latino and El Salvador Restaurant. Both were quite tasty. While the decor at Rincon is nothing to write home about, the blasting music at El Salvador may be too much for some people. I did like that El Salvador offered two styles of cabbage slaw for the pupusas - one spicy and one mild. Rincon provides patrons with cajeta (caramel) lollipops along with the check, which was a surprising treat. Unfortunately I didn't get any photos of the pupusas, but here is a look at the chips & salsa, condiment platter and spicy slaw at El Salvador Restaurant. Both restaurants serve Mexican dishes as well as Salvadoran specialties.
