Pupusas are Salvadorean, not Mexican. Corn husk-wrapped tamales(red or green) are a real rarity in TO. And no, the Kensington offerings don't share much DNA with the Tijuana originals. Anyone can make better at home with masa, corn husks from NoFrills and a Mexican cookbook(Bayless or Kennedy)for filling ideas. I'm off for a trip back home to Phoenix next month and can't wait to visit restos and friends' moms and aunts for the real deal. Simply put--it ain't here, amigo.
