Pupuseria Latinos

15 Sep


As its name indicates, this family run restaurant offers home cooked Salvadoran dishes. ┬áHaving established itself nearly ten years ago, it’s become one of the best places in the region for authentic Salvadoran food. I have been going there for many years and their food continues to be amazingly delicious. Check out their facebook page here!


Enchiladas (Salvadoran style). These provide an explosion of flavours and crispy crunch.


Corn tamale. The filling is light and fluffy, and goes well with a side of sour cream.


Savoury pupusas! The Pupuseria Latinos offers various fillings for their pupusas including cheese, zucchini, beans, chicharron and loroco.
