El Sunzal

This quintessential hole-in-the-wall eatery maintains only a bare-bones appearance on the outside, but every dish is complex in flavor. Pupusas, fried yucca, chicharrónes, plantains, and seafood soup – all of the sweet and salty notes are married in ways best described in a Romance language.
