No. 28: Pupusas Revueltas from El Guanaco

Pupusas are essentially two thick corn

tortillas that have been stuffed with any

combination of cheese, beans,

or meat and then closed -- sort of like an arepa, only if arepas

possessed the kind of intrinsic draw to wake you up from a dead sleep

with thoughts of eating one. The nutty masa is griddle-cooked, so the

exterior is crisp and pocked with brown marks. Meanwhile, the filling of

fresh quesillo cheese melts inside the soft casing, a hot and savory

pool that demands to be eaten quickly. At El Guanaco (Salvadoran

slang for, well, the Salvadoran), the pupusas are hand-formed to order

behind the tinted glass counter. The revueltas variety come steaming hot

from the griddle, the soft, creamy masa yielding to

pungent beans and the similarly textured, intensely meaty pork. A little

bowl of red tomato sauce on the side is meant to be poured over sliced

cabbage and eaten with the pupusa, adding both vegetal crunch and acidic

zip.
