I've only been to Yuma once, but this commentary and the beautiful photos **really** make we (almost) want to drive there. At least I have a friend living there that I can alert to this restautant. Thanks Ed!!

Salvadoran pupusas were introduced to me by way of being hungry and finding a local pupuseria near my office. The guy was operating this was from El Salvador and made wonderful agua fresca ensalada with the little bush cherries that are so like small citrusy flavor. wonderful stuff. His pupusas he served with much pride and with a wonderful cabbage relish.
His range wasn't quite as good as your places but the food was quite delicious.

Louise, tell your friends, but warn them that the place is tiny and seedy looking - but always clean.

Pupusas are what initially led me to the place, jeff, but the soups are what bring me back almost every week. I believe I have had an agua fresca ensalada with that bush cherry (I think I mention it in the first or second post on this place).


Ed, I'm with Louise and am only wondering why I haven't been to this pupuseria yet. This and some of your other posts about the very delicioso looking regional dishes in Yuma makes me think about hightailing it over for some home cooking looking meals!


That looks so goooooood.


Ed: If you like Salvadorean food and happen to be on the I-10, you can take a detour to Desert Hot Springs to Mi Riconcito Salvadoreano. A tiny place in a strip mall on the main road into DHS (next to an Albertsons I think). Tasty food. When we ate there a couple of years ago, it was only patronized by Salvadoreans.

Ken, thanks for the tip. Cabanas has almost entirely Salvadoran clentele as well. In fact, I didn't know how many Salvadorans were in Yuma.

Thanks for the kind words, bill and fh.
