Amongst chocolate, wines, and beers at the Escondido Chocolate Festival, we also sampled our first ever pupusas at Cuscatlan Salvadorian Cuisine. A pupusa is traditional Salvadorian dish, essentially a deliciously thick corn tortilla that's usually stuffed with cheese and meat. Almost a year later, we finally made it back for a full meal at the restaurant!

Cuscatlan Sampler at Cuscatlan Salvadorian Cuisine in Escondido

The Cuscatlan Sampler ($13.95) sounded like the best way to start our visit. This monstrous sized plate contained fried plantains, fried yuca with fried pork, 1 corn tamale, 1 chicken tamale, 2 pupusas, sour cream and beans.
