It seemed like forever ago I was scrambling around to scan in my signature and email it over to them before the deadline but it was time!
The Foodbuzz festival! Meaning...FOODBLOGGER ROAD TRIP!
It was to be Mattatouille, The Kung Food Panda and I, squeezed into the Food GPS mobile--an Acura RSX for five hours straight...
It was not long before we stopped for our first pit stop while speeding along the sunburnt asphalt of the I-5 North: Titas Pupuseria, a Pupusa truck?
A new potential post or a habituated Double-Double? It was Pupusa time!
Menu wasn't half bad, offering a couple of other cool Salvodorean options
Of course, we all opted for its national dish.
Loroco: A flower bud used as a herb. The flavor is really light and subtle, just a vaguely faint tarragon-like taste.
Each order took around ten minutes to make, then I saw why and did not mind the wait. Each turnover had a guaranteed part of the cheese that would be purposely oozed out and left to be turned into a small crispy piece of golden goodness.
The pickled, shredded cabbage slaw known as Curtido also was a step above others I've had around town. Matt and I agreed that it was not too different than a form of Kimchi.
A surprisingly delectable find in the land of franchise driven "T.A" travelers centers.
Next stop...San Francisco!
