Good Salvadorian food in or near Echo Park

emmy | Mar 14, 2008 07:43 PM

I have some out-of-town visitors with some dietary restrictions here in Echo Park who would like to eat some Salvadorian food. Also, since the demise of my favorite local Salvadorian restaurant (Café La Paz), I'm curious about other nearby Salvadorian places.

Does anybody know about Nuvia's on Sunset? I think it's where La Fe used to be. What do people think of the place at the intersection of Glendale, Alvarado, and Berkeley? What about Los Cobanos?

(Some of the visitors are vegetarian except for fish; some are very allergic to eggs and avoid wheat and cheese. Because one of the visitors is a three-year-old child, it makes the most sense for us to get take-out.)

I might get take-out from Atlacatl, though I'm a little mystified as to what to get the more allergic types. I guess pupusas with beans but no cheese, and fish with no breading with more beans...

Any thoughts are welcome, whether about what would be good for my visitors, or about local Salvadorian places in general. And if anyone knows whether Café La Paz relocated, please do tell.
