El Salvador Restaurants

  • If you have a chance to go to...

    If you have a chance to go to 'A lo Nuestro' restaurant in the Zona Rosa is an excellent place to try varied salvadorean food or excellent creations of the chef inspired by traditional salvadorean ingredients. It's an expensive restaurant, but if you can afford it's really worth it. For pupusas any good 'pupuseria' found anywhere will do the...

  • Pupusas

    Pupusas are typical El Salvadorian food and it can be bought at food stalls all around the country. They are thick tortillas stuffed with minced pork meat, beans, cheese or vegetables. You tell the sales woman which filling you want and she takes a piece of dough, form the tortilla with the filling and put it on the stove. So it is nice and warm...

  • Great view! Great experience

    This is a Holel located on the shore of Lake Quatepeque. The lake is simply one of the most beautiful lakes I have ever seen. This restaurant is located right on the shore with an unforgetable view. The crazy part about the restaurant is that it sits on a huge deck which stands about 40 feet above the ground. To look at it makes you think the deck...

  • Festival Gastronomica

    This is not a restaurant, it is an event. The Festival Gastronomica in Juayuva is a well known event which occurs every weekend. National Geographic and Discovery Channel have done some reports about it. I went there last week and I could not believe how fun it was. The food was fantastic! I went with a few American friends who ate there and no one...

  • "Taco Lips" Great taqueria.

    I have been in San Salvador for 2 months. A bunch of people were telling me about this great taco place in the barrio Escalon. Not sure of the name, but all the locals know it as "Taco Lips" (Lips is the name of the strip club accross the street). Don't be afraid. The place is great. I have taken a lot of Americans with weak stomachs there and no...

  • Don't Miss the Quality!!!!!!

    Hi,if you have a chance while there visit this place,it isn't glamorous but if you're looking for a place to have a delicious dinner,hmmm Asados al Carbón,have a quality piece of steak serve with rice and salad.Or perhaps U prefer some shrimps a la carte,and a cold drink!!!!They have a variety of food,but if U love Carne Asada you'll be in the...

  • Benihana

    I love this restaurant chain, and on my last visit to San Salvador i ate there. As always the sushi was great, also the tempura. It´s located in the new commercial center Gran Vía. Highly recommended.

  • The Best Meal I’ve Had In El Salvador

    As I write this, I’ve been living in El Salvador just a few weeks short of four years. During all that time, the best meal I’ve had in any restaurant was had in Las Cabañas de Apaneca. I can’t remember the dish’s name, but it consisted of veal chunks in a cream sauce with onions, green peppers, bacon, and capers, and it was indescribably delicious.

  • A Lo Nuestro the best of Salvadorean...

    Unquestionably one of the very best restaurants in Central America. We just finished a magnificent dinner there moments ago and I feel compelled to share this treasure with all readers. Located in the Zona Rosa of San Salvador, this excellently designed/decorated restaurant has wonderful outdoor eating areas. Chef Tomasito Regalado (trained in New...

  • Ex-pat heaven

    The ex-pat hangout place in San Salvador. Lots of locals as well and the predominant languages you hear are German, Spanish, English. Great selection of beers and desserts for those late-night hangouts. Food ranges from 'gringo' french fries, to heartier stuff including some El Salvadorean specialities. Good music too!

  • Street Food

    I had a great time eating out in El Salvador. Luckily, I never had any bouts of illness from the food. I think most of the food is safe, but one should exercise caution. The papusa is a favorite El Salvadorian dish. Also the local goat cheese is crumbly and very good. I have never been a fan of refried beans, but those that were served to me there...

  • Popusas

    Mmmm... I can't believe I left out the Pupusas on my page. Popusas is a traditional food prepared from maiz and mixed with cheese, pork, and beans. It's almost like a large thickk tortilla with the ingredients mixed in the mix. The popusas are typically taken with a cole slaw type salad and spicy hot souce. This is my favorite food item in Central...

  • In San Salvador, there are...

    In San Salvador, there are plenty of restaurants in the Zona Rosa. Here are the ones, I liked most: 'Tre Fratelli' (Pasta, Pizza), 'Guadalajara Gill' (Mexican food), 'La Hola' (Seefood), 'Ole Tasca' (Spanish restaurant - with good Tapas). Furthermore I recommend 'La Ventana' (nice atmosphere, good food) and of course all the places where you can...

  • A wealth of varied food!

    It's funny to read that most people when asked about salvadorean typical food will say 'pupusas' - corn tortillas stuffed with cheese,beans or pork, and served with a cabbage salad and spicy tomato sauce. However this is not the only traditional dish, salvadorean food is very rich, let's not forget that Central America claims the origins of...

  • I have many favorites and here...

    I have many favorites and here they are:Aloha its a great place to unwind and watch a futbol game, plus the food is excellent. Not to mention the 'boquitas' which go great with a cold beer. Taste the onions in a sauce that they give you they'll blow your mind.

  • El Salvador offers a wide...

    El Salvador offers a wide variety of restaurants ranging in price and types of food. Local specialties and seafood are a must! Pupusas is the most traditional salvadoran dish. Try also the seafood cocktails - made from a variety of seafood, shellfish and fish and the ceviches - marinated fish in lime juice.

    Pollo Campero is good. Have to try it. Pueblo Viejo across from Camino Real Hotel is a good place to dine. Where ever you go to eat ask if they have 'churrasco' it is so good if your hungry enough you'll want to ask for another dish. Pupusas(corn tortilla filled with cheese or beans or chicharron among others). Yuca frita(a root that is boiled...

    Son pocos los buenos, y localizados en la zona rosa de la capital. No olvidar coger siempre un taxi de una compañía oficial, en caso contrario puede haber muchos digustos.No recuerdo bien los nomvres. Pero para comer carne me dejó buena impresión uno Guatemalteco, en dónde se come magnífica carne de res.Por debajo de éste, está otro restaurante,...
