Absolutely love the pupusas and green chicken pozole! And since "Ric" gave us the heads up on 25% lunch discount on Wednesday and Thursday's (11a-3p), it's our lunch spot with clients and amigos. And definitely take some home to enjoy for dinner 😁.

They have the best pupusas I've had in LA. Light and delicious and absolutely non-oily. We also had the green pozole which was rich and satisfying, and vegetarian to boot. In fact, the menu is quite varied with the addition of interesting indian and persian...More
