Phoenix New Times's Description
At Eliana's, a sunny, spacious Salvadoran spot just north of McDowell, the best way to start things off is with the special combination appetizer, which includes one pupusa (a doughy tortilla oozing with cheese and pork filling), a deep golden pastele Salvadoreño de carne (fried meat pie), and a chicken tamale. That's enough to make a meal, but entrees like pollo encebollado (chicken and onions in a mouthwatering tomato sauce) are just as appealing. And if you like horchata, try the Salvadoran version here - it's made with ground morro seeds, which give it a nutty flavor similar to sesame.
Tips from foursquare
Fantastic food, less pupusa variety than other places, but those they serve are excellent. Service is better than you'd hope. Check out Mi Tienda Latina across the parking lot when you're done.
Pupusas will change your life.
Wonderful food and great service.
The Pupusas are the bomb.com!
Order anything...it's ALL good!!
