So I went to the new truck on Broadway. Salvadoran food. Who knew papusa was actually spelled pupusas. Not me.
But I digress.
On my visit, they offered 2 kinds. Cheese and mixed. Mixed meaning that they threw in some beef. They also sell tacos, but I can always cross the street to Taco Truck, so I only went for pupusas.
The pupusas were great. For $1.75 you had a saucer sized package of corn meal and fillings. The side of cabbage was great (I forget the formal name) and had a nice kick to it. Made to order and really good.
The woman who owns the truck says that she has been doing this since December, but she was parked a few blocks north. Business was not so great, so I guess it made sense to park near the action.
Then I went to try the tacos at Tortilleria around the corner. Having been a big fan of their staple, I was eager to try their new offerings.
For $2.00, you get one taco. But (as mentioned in another post below) it is really 2. Lots of meat, 2 tortillas and 2 side sauces.
As expected, the tortillas were great. They came right off the line.
I was a bit put off by the dryness of the meat, but I owe that to the hour. It was a bit late in the evening. The same has happened at Taco Truck in the past from time to time.
I think in the future, I will grab a pupusa from the new truck, several tacos and tamales from Taco Truck and then a kilo of tortillas from Tortilleria to take back to my house.
Oh, and a pint from Peter's as well.
