Revuelta Pupusa

Rinconcito Salvadorean

Westender
Similar to the Colombian arepa and the Mexican gordita, it's essentially a still-warm, thick tortilla disc made interesting by a stuffing, which is most often augmented by a healthy dose of soft cheese. They're served with a gently fermented slaw and an unthreatening, vernacular hot sauce... There are four types: revuelta (a mix of cheese, pork and beans); frijoles y queso (bean and cheese); chicharron (pork ground to a paste); and straight up queso (cheese). [...] if I was to pick just one of the bunch (and I usually do), I'd go for the revueltas. The pork paste might sound far removed from the flavour of bacon, but it's swell when sandwiched by cheese and bean, and the combination of slaw and sauce provide different bites each time. Still, at $2.75 per pupusa, don't take my word for it. Order the lot.
