La Carreta (350 St. Zotique)
If you are in the mood for some seriously sumptuous El Salvadorian cuisine, then you have to check out this popular local haunt.
La Carreta is loved for their papusas, which are packed to the brim with deliciousness. While there are lots of other items on the menu (the shrimp and seafood appetizer is fantastic!), the papusas make this place a true delight.
For dessert, try the fried plantains with sour cream -- heavenly!
The service at La Carreta is friendly and attentive; the decor is warm and comfortable; and the horchata is something that everyone must try at least once (spiced cold milk drink). If you want some comfort food that just feels great, head to this little slice of papusa heaven.
