Our Review

When Pupuseria Las Delicias abandoned this tiny stand-alone building in Lincoln Square for larger digs years ago, it sat sadly empty, waiting for the day some master of the delicious Salvadoran stuffed corn tortilla would reoccupy it. The time is nigh . . . The 16 varieties now on hand, including standard bean, cheese, pork, and chicken, are surprisingly distinct from the firmer forebears of Las Delicias. These are soft and pliable, much easier to eat, and come with a heaping bowl of the mildly tart slaw (curtido) and the thin red salsa that are de rigueur for maximum pupusa potential. A full array of Salvadoran specialties balance the corn cakes, including empanadas, fried cassava with pork, and soft banana-leaf-wrapped Central-American-style tamales, plus a selection of rice, bean, and protein plates and weekend specials of cow-foot, chicken, or beef-shank soup. Of particular interest area to tropical-fruit hunters are a handful of uncommon drinks including cashew apple (marañon) and two varieties of passion fruit (maracuya and granadilla).
