I am fairly familiar with true ethnic Salvadorian food having lived in the West Indies and South America, and several years ago when I found this hidden little gem, I was delighted that the quality and quantity of the food was amazingly true to what I knew. The ambiance might be a little better- spanish slapstick comedy program on the TV, 60’s industrial tables and chairs wash of cold air unless you know where to sit...
BUT THE FOOD !
First bite of the plantains took me home to Montserrat. The Mojarra Frita- a full fish was flaky, spicy and finished just right. The Monanero- steak avocado plantains served with rice and beans... Hard to find the plate under all the food.
Best of all- We took food home and total bill was under $ 30.
As is typical, any small salad or pupusas (Amazing!) or anything you thought would be served first... probably wont but all will come together from the kitchen in a reasonable amount of time.
A funky little gem and so well worth surviving the “ambiance.”
