Two Saturdays ago, we took my sister’s family out to dinner at an El Salvadorean Restaurant in Queens. My husband, who is always on the prowl for restaurants offering authentic cuisine from different continent, is willing to try anything. He is a foodie, and if someone like him gets the chance to have a taste of something new, he is one not to pass up. Of course, before we invited them to this place, we had to try the food first last year.
El Salvador, by the way is the smallest country in Central America and in their cuisine the notable dishes are: pupusa (thick handmade corn tortilla stuffed with one or all of the following:cheese, chicharron and or refried beans) and chicken and paella as well as yuca frita.
At Izalco Restaurante, we were warmly welcomed by the owner of the resto. I noticed the ‘homey’ interior decor. It’s a very cozy restaurant replete of decors reminiscent of the country itself. It’s as if you are in El Salvador, really. Take a peek:
