Ladies and Gentlemen, we now have a new champion in Pupusas. Down round ole' Chincopin Round Road, off to the left, in the strip mall of shops....lies Martitha's Salvadorian/Mexican Restaurant.
Holy Cow! Does this place have everything...like 30 some items of goodness. Meg and I tried the Pollo al la Plancha (Grilled Chicken Breast), Beef Tacos, and wait for it...yes..."Pupusas".
Traditionally Pupusas are thick hand made corn tortilla/cakes filled with a nice soft cheese and pork. We saw them being hand done as street food in Belize for the first time and fell in love. The condiments are awesome...red salsa, green salsa, and cabbage. The best is that the condiments are served seperately in little baggies (Spare no expenses). These were the most succulent, moist, and savory pupusas we have ever had. The cheese was kinda of melted/fried hard on the griddle..cooked just right.
And you know it's the right spot to go for a few reasons:
1) The girl at the liquor store who married a Guatemalan goes there and swears by it...first clue.
2) I was the only white guy there
3) A Soccer game was on the t.v.
4) Plain out it just tasted good
Seriously guys, go out and do it...find an authentic hole in the wall restaurant and enjoy a food not of your own origin.
