Your experience at El Baron really depends on when you stop by because this place doubles as a nightclub (yes, actually). But whether you come at 10am for a hearty Salvadoran breakfast or decide to eat dinner in a dimly lit club that’s blaring cumbia music, the food at El Baron is always great. The specialities here include sopa de siete mares (seafood stew), pastellitos de carne (fried meat empanadas), and great pupusas. Give their loroco pupusa a try, which comes stuffed with an aromatic flower bud traditionally used in Salvadoran cooking. It’s similar in flavor to artichoke or asparagus, but tastes even better when it’s tucked inside a masa cake with lots of cheese. When it comes to the curtido, El Baron’s is on the more liquidy side and packs a spicy kick too.
