I’m always on the hunt for Boston’s best pupusa, the traditional Salvadoran dish consisting of a stuffed corn tortilla. This piping hot full-of-yumminess tortilla is served with curtido, a cooling slaw. This driving desire has taken me to Lynn, to Somerville, to East Boston–the list goes on but I’m a bit embarrassed at this point.
The best pupusa I’ve ever had is back in the mother country, the incredible Tipicos Margoth in El Salvador. So far, nothing in the Bay State comes close–but I’m heartened by a recent post from Brian Knowles of The Gringo Chapin. He says Rosticeria Cancun, a Maverick Square hole in the wall is a contender.
Read more here and let me know if you’ve sampled some seriously good pupusas. And if you’ve never tried one, seriously–get on IT.
