If we were to place an LA pupusa in a time capsule for future humans to discover, we’d use one from Delmy’s. That’s because the namesake dish at this Salvadoran food stand—that shows up at farmers markets from Hollywood to Silver Lake—is the epitome of a griddled cake. They’re always the perfect size, with a flawless masa-to-filling ratio, and oozing mozzarella cheese. Even the curtido here is exceptional. The team takes the slaw's usual veggies and adds a few fermented hot peppers. It’s so good and pungent, we could eat this alone like a side salad.
