OC Weekly's Description

This is a Guatemalan/Salvadoran/Mexican place, but forget the latter in favor of the first two cuisines. Chuchitos, miniature Guatemalan tamales, with a lightly sauced interior, please, as well as the enchilada, what Mexicans know as a tostada. It's a tower of pickled beets and ground beef that nearly makes its crunchy foundation buckle, and there's nothing spicy about it at all, but the sourness of the beets coupled with the beef will make you prefer this to any tostada sold in la naranja. And there are pupusas, of course, epic expanses of nicely toasted masa stuffed with your choice of cheese, meat, flowery loroco, even jalapeƱo to draw in the Mexis.
