Hearty, tasty Salvadorian specialties—pupusas, meat-filled pepitos (like empanadas), savory chicken sautéed with onions and potatoes, carne asada—are served in a handsome room decorated with plush booths and Central American art and woodwork. It’s a much nicer dining experience than the shabby block it’s on suggests.
