Loroco

papusalover | Jul 13, 2005 04:11 PM

I just returned from Guatemala, and I ate these delicious stuffed tortillas called Papusas, which are an El Salvadorian treat. Some were filled with cheese and loroco flower, a really interesting-tasting green. I thought it tasted like a cross between seaweed and asparagus.
Two questions for New Yorkers:
- Is there anywhere that might carry fresh loroco?
- Has anyone had any good papusas in NYC?
Thanks!
