A place called Teresita's Pupuseria has just opened on ClearAcre. It's on the east side of ClearAcre, north of McCarran and just south of the freeway overpass, right next to a Port of Subs.
I dropped by today to get a look at the menu. Right now it's got some really bare-bones decor. Actually, it might be more accurate to say there is no decor. But the man at the counter was very friendly and there were a few customers hanging around.
A banner on the front proclaimed that they had sauteed bananas with beans and sour cream. They were running out of takeaway menus, but on the posted menu I remember seeing a few standards (burritos, menudo) plus some pretty interesting items.
-A few different kinds of meat empanadas as well as banana empanadas
-The aforementioned sauteed bananas (or plantains?)
-Peppers stuffed with cabbage and guisquil
I looked up guisquil: it is "a thorny vegetable that is starchy like potato and must be steamed to be eaten." Other websites said it was quite similar to chayote and had a chestnut-like flavor. The fellow at the counter said that the peppers were stuffed, dipped in egg batter and fried.
I can't report on the flavor of any of this because I'm on a restricted diet right now, but hopefully some of you will be able to check it out. It looks like it's operating on a shoestring, but it certainly seems authentic.
