The best bite at last month’s Cinco de Mayo fair in Santa Rosa was a Salvadoran pupusa, reports Melanie Wong. Pupusas are rice and corn cakes, filled with your choice of cheese, beans, meat, and veggie niblets. Evelyn Carolina Linares’ pupusas are perfect, with a delicate crisp exterior and a tender, chewy, almost creamy interior. Throughout the fair, there was a thirty minute wait for her pupusas–and it was, says Melanie, entirely worth the wait.

Linares doesn’t have a restaurant, but she does do catering.
