Not to be confused with Little Havana’s El Atlakat on 7th Street (or El Atlacatl on Calle Ocho), this Atlakat is on Bird Road and not affiliated with the others. The Salvadoran restaurant used to be a Mexican spot, and regulars demanded some dishes remain on the menu. So don’t be surprised when you see folks eating tacos here. But we’re fans of their pupusas—like the revuelta stuffed with mozzarella, refried beans, and pork belly. Our personal favorite is the loroco. If all flower buds tasted this good, we’d be grazing the floral section of Whole Foods and covering bouquets with cheese. The pupusas are big, only about $5 each, and come with fermented cabbage and salsa roja. They also have a stellar carne asada that’s charred, cooked, and seasoned perfectly. El Atlakat is great for lunch or a casual dinner. Service is fast but friendly, and there's a covered patio surrounded by trees.
