Pupusaria #6 - La Palma ... Off-day, downhill .... or fiction?

Krys Stanley | Aug 27, 2004 03:36 AM

My first visit here. Nice little store.

I order the pupusa with pork, cheese, and beans. Everything is takeout, so I sit on this wooden chest to wait and 30 seconds later, my order is ready to go.

At $1.95 they are the most expensive pupusa to date. THey usually run about $1.50.

I get to the car and rip open the bag. It is lukewarm and ... wrong. I go back. They assure me I have the right thing. I put on my glasses and squint at the thin filling ... well, yeah, maybe that is cheese ... I guess there's cheese in there. Kind of stingy filling as well. There is a little plastic cup of curtido which is good as is the red salsa.

I guess the fact that they don't make them on order disappointed me. I was expecting molten, I got tepid.

I tremble that the creator of chow world, the great Jeff Jim might catch this post and reign down his wrath upon me. Will I be dogged in the future, hounds nipping at my heels baying about my lack of taste? Or will I be banished from the garden of eatin' for such herasy.

Just kidding, of course ... especially about the fiction ... Jim ... Mr. Leff ... sir....

However, not kidding about the pupusa. I forgot to take notes about other good things to order here, so will have to stop by another day.
