Phoenix New Times' Description

When you’re tired of Mexican tortilla-based meals like tacos, burritos, and enchiladas, mix it up with a specialty from El Salvador called pupusas. Somewhat of a combo between a burrito and a stuffed pita sandwich, the pupusa is made with thick corn masa patties filled with cheese and other flavorful ingredients. Carnivores will enjoy the chicarron, revuelta (pork with cheese and beans), carne asada, chicken, and shrimp varieties. But everyone, especially vegetarians, should order at least one pupusa con loroco. Stuffed with the edible flower native to El Salvador and Guatemala, they have a delicate flavor similar to broccoli that’s balanced with rich queso. Two pupusas could easily make a meal, but Restaurante Salvadoreño also has entrées like ceviche de camaron, mojara frita (fried tilapia), tamales, bistec encebollado (steak with sautéed onions), lengua guisada (saucy stew of beef tongue), and salpicon con sopita (chopped beef with radish, mint, and onion). The restaurant has two locations in Mesa, one in West Phoenix on Thomas Road, and one in Sunnyslope on Central Avenue.

    The pupusas with loroco (Salvadoran edible flowers) are killer. Carne asada pupusas are really good, too.
