El Salvador Food Question: Chimbolos?

d

I ate in a restaurant in Denver recently that served Yuca con Chambolitas. It was excellent, but I wasn't sure exactly what those little fish were and I couldn't find the word Chambolitas anywhere. Then someone told me they were probably referring to Chimbolos, but then she called them pepescas--which are like sardines, no?

Can someone please tell me what Chimbolos refer to? Is it a generic name for all little fish? Are they like Los Charales of Mexico (that is what they tasted like to me)?

Thanks!
