Prepared food is inexpensive and satisfying -- tasty tamales, pleasing pupusas, and yummy rice pudding. Also - carries everything you need (or are likely to run out of at the last mintue). In the two months or so -- I've bought green peppers, hot chocolate, imported beer, coconut milk, rice, half&half, frozen plantains, 25cent ice cream treats and lots more.

I like the pupusa revuelta, the corn tamal is good, the beef empanada is tasty and I can get all 3 for around $5!

Simply the best!!!! The meat is perfectly seasoned and there is plenty of fresh avacado served on top. For under $4, it's a great value!!

Local, family owned, clean El Salvadorian grocery store. They also have a take-out counter that serves up some great food!
