Have you ever been to El Salvador?

El Salvador in CH, originally uploaded by Prince of Petworth.

One of the greatest things about living in Petworth is its location and diversity. Well, this Saturday I had the opportunity to go to a Pupeseria for the first time. A mere 15 minute walk from my house in Petworth transported me hundreds of miles to El Salvador. There was no english being spoken, there was soccer on tv, and the jukebox was blaring what I can only imagine to be classic El Salvadorian ballads. It was phenomenal.

I should tell you this is a little more casual than El Limeno but a great place for a snack or lunch. Even my bottle of coca cola was imported from El Salvador. While my girlfriend and I had delicious pupesas, the folks sitting next to us had a huge soup with lots of crabs that looked delicious. So if you are up for a little adventure or you just feel like getting out of the District for a few hours head to 14th street in Columbia Heights and you’ll be transported to Central America instantanenously. And don’t worry if your Spanish is a little rusty the staff was exceedingly friendly. Also when you leave check out the new dance studio, you can see the dancers practicing in the huge windows out front.
