Salvadorean Lunch

Having read a review that made my mouth water, I pulled out the globe, had the boys locate El Salvador and San Salvador, and loaded everyone in the car to go to Cabo Hermoso for lunch.

We ordered pupusas (pork, chicken, beans, and loroco flower - a delicious exotic bloom, native of El Salvador) , platanos fritos, and something whose base seemed to be made of a spiced lentil flour. Everything was served with curtido, a spicy, vinegar-based condiment made from cabbage, carrots and other veggies - much like sauerkraut. And we ended the meal with a mug of Salvadorean hot chocolate.

It was delicious and we all but licked the plates clean. I'm going to have to locate some recipes!
