I really liked the soft texture of the tamal, but I was really confused by the dry pieces of bread that came with it. The tamal was very flavorful and super cheap too, yay!

Mmm, these pupusas are SO delicious and SO cheap! I don’t get to Salvadoran restaurants very often (although there’s no shortage of them in the Mission), but I really do enjoy their food. The tart, pickled vegetables and mild salsa are great accompaniments.
