Chow Hot Pockets

I was introduced today to El Salvador’s take on starch stuffed with protein. The Salvadoran Bakery in White Center serves several varieties of pupusas, which are grilled rounds of corn flour dough filled with, among other choices: cheese and beans, chicken, pork or even squash. I was too hungry to stop and take pictures. These dainty but sturdy pockets were lustily devoured in our office. They’re lightly charred and pleasantly greasy, but won’t leave an oil slick your hands. Lucky for me, White Center is far far away from Capitol Hill.
