Pupuseria El Capulin, Newark report w/ pics - great pupusas & $1 tacos

hhc | Apr 5, 200709:41 PM    

This place is pretty good. It's across from All Star Burger. Whatever you do u Must Try the Pupusas HERE!!!!

I saw a pic of this place on Flickr and I had to go. $1 tacos..I'm there. These are not huge tacos, they are smaller than my hand, 2 warm corn tortillas filled with whatever meat u want and some onions/cilantro on top.

For my first time I got:
2 carnitas (roasted pork) tacos - I thought the meat was dry, but the corn tortillas was good w/ the chopped onions/cilantro. $1 ea.

2 carne asada (grilled beef) tacos- I liked the chopped grilled beef, so it's recommended. $1ea.

I also got a Pupusa Revueltas (pork, cheese & beans) $1.99-it's made fresh to order, chewy & crispy pupusa and nice insides all blended together. Comes w/ a side of pickled cabbage. I'll probaby get a bunch next time, IT"S A MUST TRY!!! Awesome stuff!!

1 corn tamale (tamal elote) $1.79 - on the menu it was $1.59 so don't know why I had to pay the extra .20 but whatever. It was kinda gummy feeling, but the tamale was sweet from the corn. It was pretty good.

They have a good size dining room, but I did take out.

My total $8.46. They take credit cards. Bathroom available but didn't use it.

Lady spoke English well enough that I could order & she understood me. Plus she was friendly.

Cross street: Magnolia Ave, across from the Mexico Tortilla Factory.
