Best Pupuseria you can get in here at Grand Central Market. They different variates - chicken, beans, cheese. So perfect for meat eaters and vegetarians as well. Gets busy at lunch time but there is plenty of seats at the Market. Was delicious, fresh made.

Pretty good pupusas, but not sure if it's worth the wait. I like their tasty picked cabbage in a bag and all the items you order from the side are tasty. I would say don't come during a popular time. Cause while the food is...More

The pupusas are the star of the show priced at approximately $4 a piece. It is tasty with the right amount of cheese. The plantains are tasty but heavy and the yucca is bland. The spicy sauce is tasty and the cabbage salad pairs well...More

Downtown Los Angeles is a busy metropolis of towering
buildings, bustling streets, and industrial
warehouses. There is a distinct multiplicity of
cultures here with a growing influx of business
professionals and hipsters. Many call the evolution of
Downtown over recent years gentrification. New lofts,
bars, hotels and restaurants are popping up regularly.
Downtown is home to some of the very best restaurants
