The pupusa might be El Salvador's official dish, but El Cuscatleco might just convince you to make it the official dish of everyone. Theirs are pillowy, with lots of cheese and tasty fillings stuffed inside the warm, griddled corn patties. The mixta with beans and chicharron is our go-to, while the pupusas with squash or loroco (an edible flower common in El Salvador that tastes similar to asparagus mixed with broccoli) are great, lighter options. The tiny dining room is a good place to stop by for a quick snack, but they also have heartier Latin American dishes like a Guatemalan longaniza platter.
