Hot Pockets

posted by on January 31 at 17:35 PM

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.

My fave for papusas is el Trapiche on the 100 block of S 153rd in burien.

Of course, the Salvadoran Bakery has a million excellent dessert selections. Well worth the trip at any time. The Tres Leches cake is boom shakalaka very delish.

El Salvadoran also has amazing beef soup with whole corncob pieces and tender beef in rich broth served with the Salvadoran tortilla, a thick wheat pancake. Comes with a kind of slaw. Try the breakfasts, too.

And White Center is really only 15 minutes if you go via Delridge.

yeah, pupusas - there are eight pupusarias on my street here in DC and i am very willing to trade my sleekness for one of those tasty disks-o-joy every day. apparently there's been a movement to make pupusas DC's official can only dream.

Fortunately for those of us who recognize the existence of life off the Hill, White Center is not "far, far away."
