El Salvadorean Food
Golfo De Fonseca
Salvadorean and Mexican food on Vermont, between Melrose and Santa Monica Blvd. If you pass the Jack in the Box, you pass this restaurant. It's across the street from Los Angeles City College.
I really like this place for breakfast. They have a drink called, Chan, to die for. It takes like pulpy strawberry seeds, but I heard it comes from cactus and they mix it in Cool-Aid. Anyway, it's good. They make Horchata, a rice drink, from scratch (watch them make it, from a blend of rice and spices). It usually tastes like rice milk with cinnamon. They also have a Tamarind drink. If you like that tart taste, this is the drink to try.
Pupusas are an El Savadorean food. They look like thick tortillas, but with a filling, like beans, pork, and cheese. The Farmer's Market in Hollywood on Selma sells ones with baby squash and shrimp. You can ask for Cortito, which is a side that looks to me, like Korean kim chee. I think it's pickled cabbage. You eat it with the pupusas.
I recommend the Huevos Rancheros and pupusas, or anything with chorizo (blood sausage). Menudo is good as well. It's a soup with white hominy (corn family), but tastes excellent with cabbage, lime and chilis.
