If you’re someone who loves both karaoke and pupusas, then we have good news for you: there's somewhere you can enjoy both simultaneously. Mi Bandera Pupuseria is a neon-lit Salvadoran spot in the South Figueroa Corridor where you can eat great pupusas and sing all at once (or at least on Friday and Saturday nights). But this place has more to offer than just the opportunity to embarrass yourself in front of coworkers, including its chewy pupusas that come with the ideal filling-to-masa ratio. Mi Bandera’s version isn’t the size of your plate like at other spots, so it’s easy to have a mix-and-match pupusa party when you stop by. This place also makes a delicious revuelta filling with soft chicharron cooked in tangy salsa, and a creamy bean paste that’s good enough to eat by the spoonful. It’s topped off with a sharp cabbage and carrot curtido and a super-thin salsa de tomate to marinate your masa in.
