Stuff to See and Do
What to Eat
Pupusas are probably the most popular dish in El Salvador for both locals and visitors. This national dish can be found in any town across the country. Pupusas consist of a corn tortilla filled with any combination of cheese, beans, chicharron, chicken, seafood, vegetables, and garlic. They are pan-fried to perfection and served with fermented cabbage and a light salsa. Warning: Pupusas come out hot. You will burn your fingers and your mouth eating them, but it is well worth it.
