Food Network Pit Stop: Pupusa’s at the Tortilla Cafe

Food Network Pit Stop: Pupusa’s at the Tortilla Cafe

So, I love pupusas. Have you ever had pupusas? They are a Salvadorian dish – sort of like cheese stuffed tortillas. But way better than that sounds. Anyways, I found this random little restaurant online that supposedly had the best pupusas in the area.


The Tortilla Cafe was featured on Diners, Drive-In’s & Dives for these magical pupusas, so naturally we had to give it a try. You can watch a clip of the owner make her legendary pupusas on Diner’s Drive-In’s & Dives here.


Guys, they truly are magical. I’m so depressed that I didn’t hear about this place until now. We’re leaving DC on August 1st, which means this fantastic restaurant won’t be in my life for much longer.


It’s in the Eastern Market and if you’re ever in the area, you’ve GOT to go. It’s even super cheap. We spent $19 for two combination meals, 2 drinks and an extra pupusa for Ivan. WHAT? That’s unheard of in DC.

I’ll leave you with these glorious food shots. Here is my pupusa platter (I picked rice & black beans for my sides).


Here is Ivan’s burrito meal with refried beans and rice.
