Get a cheese pupusa (the bean and cheese is also a good call) sans curtido and sauce, pair it with a horchata, and call it breakfast. But seriously, the fluffy stacks-on-stacks of pupusas here give IHOP a run for their money. Truth: At one point they had a sign underneath their awning that said “La Casa de Pupusas” or “The House of Pupusas.” There’s loroco and chilipín here too. If you feel like going real savory, ask for some sour cream along with your curtido and tomato sauce. Sort of like a blini, minus the caviar.
