I have been to Samantha's, Sergio's Place, and Los Churros. I am jonzing for some mexi/salvadoran tonight and would love your insight as to a new place to try. As for the above, they are all excellent in their own right and each do different things better than others
1. Ceviche is best at Samantha's
2. Pupusas are best at Sergio's
3. Cabbage served with pupusas is best at Samantha's
4. Breadth of menu is best at Los Churros.
5. Parking is easiest at Los Churros.
I could go on but you get the point. I like each of these restaurants a lot but would love to see if you think I am missing somewhere stand out.
Caveats--must be a real restaurant where I can sit down and enjoy a meal (I love Irene's but not up for eating dinner in a diner tonight). Want to stay in Silver Spring, Wheaton, or Takoma area. Menu must be Salvadoran and Mexican as husband prefers the Mexican side of things (he's happy as long as he is eating fajitas).
I have read positive things about El Golfo and Nopalito . . .
Look forward to your recs!
