La Molienda's STORY
Pupusas! Pupusas are Kings and Queens here. A traditional Salvadorian dish eaten by hand. Unlike the Arepa, it's filled prior to cooking. The Dough is a corn flour with lime incorporated to create the masa. Originally created by pipil tribes, the word pupusa is derived from popotl (meaning stuffed) and Haxkalli ( meaning tortilla) = popoatlax, now and forever known as a Pupusa. Exclusively a vegetarian meal stuffed with flowers or vegetables before meat was added to the original recipes. The Pupusa is accompanied by Curtido, a pickled cabbage side similar to sauerkraut or kim chi. Today the pupusa has its very own National Day every 2nd Sunday in November.
