Pupusas Are My New Favorite


Giggles, Prim, and I tried Pupusas y Mas (3133 San Gabriel Blvd., Rosemead) on Tuesday. I've often driven by it and wondered what was inside.

I wonder no more!

The restaurant is simple but clean and well air-conditioned! The service is warm and friendly! The food is fantastic and inexpensive!

Horchata ($1.60)!

Jamaica ($1.60)!

This is curtido. It is pickled cabbage that you eat with your pupusas. I found it remarkably similar to the pickled cabbage common in Chinese and Japanese cuisine.

I got two pupusas revueltas ($2.20 each), which included cheese, beans, and chicharrones (fried pork, rinds to be exact).

I also put a thin, red, slightly spicy tomato-based sauce on my pupusas. They were so freakin' good! I am already making plans to bring them home to Mr. Monkey next week. In fact, I raved about them to Mr. Monkey so much that he was sad I didn't bring any home on Tuesday!

Giggles, Prim, and I also shared some platanos fritos con crema. Majorly sabroso!

I totally overate. I think one pupusa would've been sufficient for me. Or maybe no fried plantains. Or maybe less jamaica. Hard to say.

What I can say, though, is, if you are anywhere close to this place, go, go, go! You won't be disappointed!


  1. The difference between you and me is that I keep wondering what's inside of mysterious restaurants. Ever since you've started eating closer to my hood, it has put many mysteries to rest. Thanks!

  2. Omg, those look AMAZING!! Must try this place...

  3. i was wondering if that resturant was good. i love pupusas. & yes, 1 is enough but 2 or 3 is so much better! =D

  4. I've never had a pupusa. I don't think we have them here, but I am going to try hard to find some!

  5. Yay for me, I did just find a place that is highly recommended for pupusas about 3 miles from my house.

  6. I love me some plantains. Yum! Never heard of papusas though :)

  7. in mexico we were remembering the time, my mom taught danny b what pupusas is slang for in guatemala. really embarasking. i kinda can't eat them because of it :)

  8. i've always wondered what pupusas are, too. chicharrones and cheese inside dough? omg. must eat.

  9. Horchata! Platanos! My favorites!

  10. i LOVE chicharrones. oh, my. i'm drooling.

  11. ditto jane. now i know what to eat for dinner on thursday :)

  12. Did you say pupusas? I just died and went to heaven

  13. Why must you torture my dieting ass, Monkey? Why?! I love pupusas and platanos con crema. Sooo goooood!
