San Pablo: Susy's Bakery and Deli – Pleasing pupusas and gorgeous geletinas

rworange | Jul 10, 2011 01:00 PM

Susy’s is a good Salvadoran bakery that opened in 2009. About seven months ago, they opened a Salvadoran and Mexican restaurant.

Although they fly both Salvadoran and Guatemalan flags outside, the staff said the food was Salvadoran and Mexican only.

However, the thick pupusas with a generous filling are closer to Guatemalan pupusas and there are other Guatemalan dishes like sopa de chipilin and rellenjos of pacaya, cauliflower and green beans

Breakfast is served all day. Most of the breakfast dishes are $6.99 and include chilquiles, machaca and eggs with loroco … the last is something I haven’t seen before. Breakfast burritos plus a choice of coffee or juice are $5.99.

On each visit since it opened Susy’s gets better and better. There’s a half dozen workers busy in the kitchen and bakery. It had a steady stream of customers.

They recently added the prettiest Mexican geletinas I have ever seen. They look exactly like fresh flowers. The taste was also the best I’ve tried.

Here's what I had rated from A+ to F -

B + … Pupusas

B …... Geletina

C …… Coffee

Service: B - ... Very good

Ambiance: B - ... Very good
