What’s a pupusa?

TGIF: It’s nearly 5pm on Friday afternoon and I’m headed out the door to a brand-spanking new Salvadorian restaurant at the intersection of Brookwood and Mt. Olive (near the fairgrounds in the former China Gate location). The main dish at the tiny storefront location is Pupusas, a thick, handmade corn tortilla filled with cheese, zucchini or pork. They’ll be open until 8pm tonight, if you’ve got a craving. Stay tuned for more details.

UPDATE: Can I show my ‘gringoness’ a little more? Apparently Pupuseria Salvadorena is not the first place with pupusas in town. There is at least one other at the far end of Santa Rosa Avenue. See further details of the meal in my next blog.
