This is a very good Salvadorian Restaurant. The flavor is autentique. Although the market is always crowd it worth the line to eat pupusas and other típical dishes.

You see the ladies kneading, flattening and grilling the dough and you know you want it. Any meat is good or if you just want the cheese, nothing wrong with it either. Just make sure you ask for extra vegetable pickled because it is so...More

Pretty good pupusas, but not sure if it's worth the wait. I like their tasty picked cabbage in a bag and all the items you order from the side are tasty. I would say don't come during a popular time. Cause while the food is...More

The pupusas are the star of the show priced at approximately $4 a piece. It is tasty with the right amount of cheese. The plantains are tasty but heavy and the yucca is bland. The spicy sauce is tasty and the cabbage salad pairs well...More

Got a pork, bean and cheese pupusa served with the spicy cabbage salad. Really tasty and so cheap. Cooked fresh to order. I recommend getting one while a friend holds your spot in the eggslut line

Well I'd say its a close cousin of the tacos but in thicker sense. Kidding aside this was very yummy but the wait it long even when there wasn't much of line. Like their homemade hot sauce, not too spicy but very tasty.

Honestly I just hadn't eaten a pupusa in a really long time and the line at lunch time was reasonable so I decided to order some lunch. I ordered two pupusas (cheese and beans; cheese and chicken), plus a side of platanos (grilled banana) and...More

Look for the blue neon when you come to the Central Market to eat. I have never had pupusa, two thick corn tortillas with filling between them. Their tortillas are home made, and choices of filling are beans, potatoes, cheese, meat, and more that I...More

Downtown Los Angeles is a busy metropolis of towering
buildings, bustling streets, and industrial
warehouses. There is a distinct multiplicity of
cultures here with a growing influx of business
professionals and hipsters. Many call the evolution of
Downtown over recent years gentrification. New lofts,
bars, hotels and restaurants are popping up regularly.
Downtown is home to some of the very best restaurants
