When did South Post Oak go Salvadorean? I counted three new pupucerias south of 90A, including this charming pupusa trailer near the intersection of Tidewater.
Hot off the grill, my queso and loroco pupusa was $1.90
A pupusa is a stuffed tortilla. My favorite combo is gooey queso and the tropical greens called loroco, although cheese and chicharonnes is the most popular filling.
The preferred condiment with pupusas is curtido, a chopped cabbage and chile slaw in vinegar. You get a little baggie full on the side.
A Salvadorean lady named Elisa churns out pupusas at an amazing clip. I watched her make a dozen in five minutes. – Robb Walsh
