Pupusa Crawl in San Francisco: Your Input for SF Bay Digest

pane | Aug 15, 201102:17 PM     22

Hi, hounds

For a future digest, we're trying something new--we're creating a virtual food crawl based on board recommendations. We see plenty of threads that pop up organically ("best pizza in the south bay," "hayes valley macaron crawl")--in part we want to replicate that energy, but we'd also like to start new conversations. We plan to create a crawl map that will be attached to the digest and add specific ordering tips we find from you on the boards, both from this thread and past ones.

San Francisco pupusas are the subject of the first crawl. Any pupusa style is fine, and the aim is to create a crawl that a user could actually follow, so geographic ease is important (in San Francisco, assuming public transportation, I wouldn't include both places in Outer Richmond and in Dogpatch).

If I were embarking on a pupusa crawl in San Francisco based on recommendations in the threads I've read so far, this is where I'd go:

Balompie Cafe
La Santaneca
Rancho Grande
The New Spot

What am I missing? Are there extraordinary pupusas that you've had in San Francisco that aren't listed above and have never been covered on the board? Are there particular pupusas you always order at a certain place?
