El Sunzal

At the west end of the Seventh Street H-E-B parking lot, a cozy little gem has long resided under the radar. Since the neighborhood renaissance, it is a secret no more. This neighborhood hole-in-the wall offers an excellent selection of Mexican and Salvadoran specialties. Rejoice in the tamale elotes, pupusas, and fried plantains. Wash it down with a 32-ounce beer. – Anna Toon
