“Local mom and pop restaurant serving Salvadorian food.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 10, 2014

I've been curious about this place for a while, but avoided going into it because Seattle is not known for good latin food. The place is clean with an indteresting country decor. They serve burritos, tacos, enchilada, pupusas, fried plantains. I actually didn't know what to expect when I entered so I just had the Chile Releno Burrito. It was very good and big. It came with an interested sauce which was its famous house sauses, a variant of tomato and cheese. They served it with a spoon. This confused me because i didn't know whether i was supposed to spoon the sauce like a soup. I still don't know. But the burrito was very good. I saw someone ordering the pupusa and I thought it looked so good i would have to come back. There were a lot of locals coming in both latin and not. The owner and cashier doesn't speak any English, but the service was very good.

“Delicious Salvadoran!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 2, 2013 via mobile

Great food. Great value. Very casual. Only thing missing is beer, but they will be serving it soon. Pupusas delicious. Loved the tamales and fried plantains.

“Great Salvadorean food!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 6, 2013

Tiko Riko is a little north of the city but so worth the drive. Their Salvadorean tamales are wonderful, as are their pusas (try the loroco) area amazing. Their fried bananas and yucca are utterly habit forming. If you haven't eaten here, you should. It's well worth it.

Parking can be tricky because it's a busy little plaza, but don't despair, just take a trip around the block and come back. Spaces open up pretty quickly.
