Though the neon-lit interior and TV sets blaring with futbol aren’t an ideal setting, Usuluteco’s food serves as a great introduction to Salvadorean cuisine. The appetizers are especially memorable. Salvadeorean enchiladas are served open-faced on crisp tortillas that brim with tangy chicken, tomatoes, lettuce and cheese. The superb papusas ooze cheese and come filled with either exotic laroco flower or beans. For entrées, the chile relleno’s shepherd’s pie-like stuffing of beef and potatoes is gooey and addictive. With its hearty portions and cheap prices, there’s little wonder why Usuluteco remains so popular.
