Perfect For:Casual Weeknight DinnerHappy Hour
DC’s largest immigrant population hails from El Salvador, and that means there are lots of fantastic places to get pupusas and other Salvadoran classics. El Tamarindo in Adams Morgan is DC’s oldest Salvadoran spot—which is fitting since most trips to DC include a little bit of history—and serves up fast, flavorful food. The menu is a mix of Salvadoran and Mexican, so along with pupusas, sweet plantains, and tamales, there are tacos, burritos, and fajitas. It’s a casual spot that will get busy with both visitors and locals, and you can get all-day Happy Hour at the bar.
