SF Weekly's Description

La Santaneca's pupusas -- griddle-cooked corn or rice cakes stuffed with cheese, beans, or pork -- are good, the curtido (spicy pickled cabbage) particularly piquant. The yuca with chicharron is fried to a golden crackle, and the banana-wrapped tamales de chipilin approach the lightness of a meringue. Drinks at this Mission District Salvadorean restaurant range from toasted-seed horchata to tiste, a Frappuccino-like blend of roasted corn and cacao beans.

  • Menka Q. on 09/11/10

    This place so good! Best pupusas and curtido- fresh and non-greasy. Service is also super friendly.

  • Christen D. on 03/31/12

    The pupusas are awesome! Two should normally do - three if you've whiffed a lot of (second hand) weed on the way down Mission St.

  • Calvin D. on 05/09/13

    Pupusas Revueltas pork/cheese combination $1.75 each delish! Get it go as the place is alway crowded.

  • cyn k. on 07/24/12

    everyone says it for a reason- get the pupusas, especially beans and cheese or pork beans and cheese.

  • Ryan on 01/23/11

    Try the pupusas!
