What we love most about the pupusas at El Guanaco, a small order-at-the-counter restaurant in a Hollywood strip mall, is that they rely on ingredients, not pure fat and salt, for flavor. Queso, tender pork meat, and golden masa all work together like a well-trained youth symphony. The menu sticks mainly to classic varieties like cheese or pork, but we recommend the revueltas with cheese, pork, and creamy beans.
