Drop into this casual and quiet family cafe for a taste of El Salvador.. In Short This eatery's menu is replete with pupusas and other Salvadorean dishes. However, the restaurant is located in a largely Mexican neighborhood, and as a result the menu has been modified to include Mexican favorites as well. Pupusas are the hallmark of Salvadorean cooking and Esmeralda's has them in spades. One can't go wrong with any of the shrimp dishes, and for a unique drink, there's the liquefied fruit cocktail.
Best Salvadorean I have ever had.
On Charleston two blocks away from the historic Huntridge Theater we found this great little Salvadorean restaurant. The food, experience and the staff have made this a great choice time and time again. It's the only place in town I know where to get a Regia beer, a papusa and a shrimp cocktail. The decor makes you feel at home if you were from Salvador! I can't rave enough about this place, my favorite restaurant in the city.
