La Salvadorena


La Salvadorena has a very unique atmosphere. It sticks out against the suburban street of Knoxville Avenue with its bright orange exterior. I believe that it used to be a house.

I ordered a bean and cheese pupusa, a beef gordita and a water. The pupusa and gordita cost $1.45 each, resulting in just over $3 with tax.

Salvadorian food is mild, but if you’re a fan of spice, there are several toppings to fit your liking.

The pupusa was especially mild, made of a homemade corn tortilla and filled with beans and cheese. The gordita had cilantro in the midst of beef and lettuce which gave it a delicious kick. Like a chain such as La Huerta, La Salvadorena has complimentary chips and salsa. With the combination of all of this food, I was full by the end of the meal!

Both the atmosphere and the food reminded me of the summer before my college freshman year when I traveled to Honduras for five weeks.

La Salvadorena has grown over the past year and I fully expect their staff to grow. There is only one server currently so the service isn’t punctual, but it’s definitely worth a visit.
