New pupusa truck in Napa! Great cheap eats!

vday | Jun 1, 2009 02:49 PM

Imagine my glee as I returned from a necessary errand at home depot, stomach grumbling from missing breakfast and lunch, to spy a big white truck with red and yellow lettering selling pupusas parked on Soscol Ave:-)
I quickly veered to the right side of the road and backed up to the truck. Sure enough, authentic Salvadorean Pupusas are made to order! They also make tacos and tortas. They have aguas frescas which I didn't try, but will next visit.
I ordered one cheese and one "mixed" (spicy pork, beans, cheese) pupusa. $2 each is a bargain for the good sized tasty treats. They were nicely packaged up in a "to go" box (need to find an alternative to the styrofoam) with a ziplock baggie of home-made roast chile salsa, and a baggie of traditional cabbage slaw with oregano tucked carefully inside the box. I sat in my car to eat the piping hot treats. Delicious! The cheese pupusa needed a little longer on the grill which I will request next time. I was forewarned that the cheese pupusa takes about 8 minutes to cook, so another minute or two is no big deal. These were much as I remember from the great Salvadorean places in SF.
Location: East side of Soscol, North of Home Depot and South of the split of the Silverado trail. Across from the Volvo dealership. Open every day from about 10am to 9 pm.
