********THIS RESTAURANT IS NOW CLOSED.********
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!
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!
