 Pupusas Express -- NOW OPEN

Now Open in the Annandale Shopping Center is a much awaited new dining experience known as Pupusas Express. (7042 Columbia Pike, Annandale, VA 22003) Delicious, spotlessly clean and friendly, this eatery will delight the young and the young at heart. The menu reflects the traditional Salvadoran dishes offered at affordable prices certain to please every budget.

Known for their warm hospitality and exceptionally quick and courteous service, they have now expanded to four locations. If you are unfamiliar with Salvadoran cuisine, the staff will be happy to discuss ingredients and walk you through the menu offerings.

The traditional Salvadoran foods are a mix of Native American cuisines from indigenous groups and influences from European (Spanish) cuisine.  Many of the dishes are made with maize (corn) in one form or another. There is also a heavy use of pork, chicken, and seafood.

El Salvador's most notable dish is the pupusa, a thick handmade corn flour or rice flour flatbread stuffed with cheese, cooked ground pork, chicken, refried beans, or vegetables.  Since most are only $2.40 each, you can afford to try a few combinations.  Condiments accompanying the pupusas are pickled-cabbage (a cole slaw known as curitido) and tomato sauce.

Other well-known Salvadoran dishes include carne guisada (a saucy beef stew with potatoes and carrots), carne asada (grilled steak),  Camarones a la Crema (Sauteed shrimp mixed with onions, green peppers and cream),  Ceviche de Camaron (lime cooked shrimp), various Tacos, Quesadillas, and Fajitas. 

SOUP-SOUP, YOU MUST TRY THE SOUP
Don’t overlook their four soup offerings as they are of special note.
