New Times Broward-Palm Beach's Description

The word charamusca roughly translates in Salvadoran slang as "a mix of things," which is just what you'll get at the homey El Guanaco. The yellow building on Prospect Road caters to the large Salvadoran and Mexican population in that blue-collar stretch of Fort Lauderdale. But El Guanaco serves just as many customers from north of the Rio Grande. As such, the menu is inexpensive and eclectic, with both American- and Salvadoran-style breakfast served all day, daily specials such as Mondongo (tripe) soup and stewed oxtail, and a small but tasty selection of antojitos, snacks including tacos constructed on made-to-order corn tortillas and pupusas so satisfying that they could threaten to make El Salvador's national dish the favorite of South Florida. And for dessert, don't forget the charamusca, a homegrown Salvadoran popsicle made with coconut or tamarind juice.

    Amazing food at really good prices. The Pupusas are awesome and fresh juices are great. One of the best, I wish I lived closer so I could go more often. Highly recommended!
