Located about 15 minutes south of Downtown in Green Meadows, Tortas Hula Hula is a tiny stand that sets up shop every weekend in a parking lot along Avalon Blvd. and specializes in one of El Salvador’s most popular sandwiches - tortas estilo Hula Hula. Named after the San Salvador city park they originated from, the sandwich is made with two beef patties, ham, mayo, smashed avocado, curtido (Salvadoran cabbage slaw), and salsa dulce all packed onto a long, flaky pan flauta that’s been toasted on the grill. It’s a remarkably flavorful, well-balanced sandwich and one of the most unique you’ll find in all of LA. Call (323) 627-3232 for daily hours of operation.
