We found Waruguma on the recommendation from one of the Tuff E Nuff guides. We were so happy that we found it early in the trip as we ended up eating here 3 or 4 times during or week stay. We tried many of the different papusas and tacos. Great value for really yummy food! We were there so often that the staff even came to know us. A great place off the beaten bath of the beach with amazing value!

We found this little restaurant one evening as we were walking and had their pupusas which were good. They are prepared fresh (made to order) just outside the store and served with crisp shredded cabbage and a light sauce. The pork and cheese was good but my friend enjoyed the chicken more. When the place is busy, outdoor tables fill up fast and you need to sit inside which can be very hot.

It feels like mom is making your dinner! We have gone back 3 times during this trip! Best street food and hearty snack! The pupusas are made right in front of you and they travel extremely well. The ladies wrap them up and include slaw and sauce in little bags and they are smoking hot when you arrive home!

Stopped in on the recommendation of our hotel staff. Wanted to try the "famous" pupusas, but the waiter couldn't really tell us what they were, except that only two of the 12 varieties on the menu are available at lunch. Also no lobster. Also no conch. We saw fish burritos and some rice & sauce dishes around us, which looked good but I can't vouch for them because ordering was pretty difficult. So we got one each of the 2 types of pupusas that were available, which were indeed cheap but not particularly filling. Should have tried the burritos.

The papusas were freshly made before your eyes. They came in many different variations of seafood, spinach, pumpkin, and etc. The seafood burritos were AMAZING. And their ceviches were the freshest on the island!
