With a menu filled with everything from chile rellenos and huevos rancheros to sopas and beef tortas, you could come to this Salvadoran spot in Reseda several times and not even get to the pupusa section. That would be a mistake in our books. Mis Raíces’ pupusas are crispy and golden, with scalding hot interiors that require several minutes to cool off before eating. What stands out most though is the sheer variety here. There are 26 different kinds on the menu, including shrimp, zucchini and cheese, and squash and spinach. If you’re looking to expand on your usual pupusa routine, head to Mis Raíces.
