Have the sudden urge for cheesy pupusas and housemade yucca chips? You need Estrellita’s Snacks. The Salvadoran kiosk is located inside the La Cocina Municipal Marketplace (the food hall in the Tenderloin), among six other stalls from La Cocina’s incubator program. This spot serves rotating Salvadoran stews, tamales, and a caldo of the day, and the main event, pupusas. They're big, chewy, and come one per order (there’s also a two pupusa combination plate with casamiento, fried plantains, and curtido, the tart fermented cabbage slaw). Come here for the revuelta stuffed with pork, refried beans, and cheese, pair it with their fried plantain and crispy yuca chips, and call it a satisfying lunch or early dinner (they close at 7pm).
