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.

Annandale Volunteer Fire Dept. Virtual Open House 

Every October for the past few decades the Annandale Volunteer Fire Dept. has invited community members into their fire and rescue stations for Open House events during Fire Prevention Week (FPW). Unfortunately, this year it is safer for the Fairfax County community and members of the Fairfax County Fire and Rescue Department (FCFRD) if they do not offer a traditional Open House at their fire and rescue stations.

Instead, FCFRD will be hosting several fun, interactive activities, and virtual events throughout FPW beginning on Monday, October 5. This year’s FPW theme is “Serve Up Fire Safety in the Kitchen!” This focus on cooking fire safety comes in response to home cooking fires representing the leading cause of U.S. home fires, with nearly half (49 percent) of all home fires involving cooking equipment; unattended cooking is the leading cause of these fires.

A virtual open house will highlight the week and occur throughout the day on Saturday, October 10 on FCFRD social and digital platforms.

Join them for a fun-filled week of fire safety, special activities and “Behind-the-Scenes” features! Please register online to be eligible for prizes and to enjoy their specially prepared weekly selections!  Register here: Virtual Fire Prevention Week 2020  

Once registered you will be sent a packet containing related safety materials and special items including FCFRD “Exclusive Items”! You do not need to register to participate in the week’s events but registering allows you to be eligible for prizes!

SCHEDULE OF EVENTS

  • Monday, Oct. 5 – Survey your home for fire safety. 
  • Tuesday, Oct. 6 – Storytime with fire safety hero Flash Max, complete the Great Escape Challenge, and earn a prize. 
  • Wednesday, Oct. 7 – Meet the FCFRD puppets, become the fire marshal of your home, and earn a safety badge. 
  • Thursday, Oct. 8 – Watch a demonstration, Cooking with Firefighters, and get a delicious recipe. 
  • Friday, Oct. 9 – Tag along with Sparky the Fire Dog and learn about the day-to-day activities at a busy fire station.
  • Saturday, Oct. 10 – Family Fun Q&A with Sparky and the firefighters and much more.
