With multiple locations around LA, Paseo San Miguel is a one-stop-shop for trying El Salvador’s most celebrated dishes. The pupusas here are excellent, satisfyingly big, and can be made from either cornmeal or rice flour. If you’re unsure about which pupusa to choose, the go-to here is their revuelta, which is the name for the classic chicharron, bean, and cheese combo. This place never skimps on the filling either, so expect plenty of cheesy stuffing rather than digging into mouthfuls of dough. Also, their briny curtido brings tons of acidic flavor and crunch to every bite.
