What's a Pupusa?

Pupusas come from El Salvador. This savory food is typically served with tomato sauce or salsa, and a cabbage slaw known as curtido (similar to kimchi or sauerkraut). The pupusa itself is a masa cake that can come stuffed with your favorite fillings. Pupusas are versatile, making them the perfect menu item for carnivores and vegetarians alike. Seafood lovers, veggie lovers, cheese lovers, and so on can find a pupusa perfect for them. The dough of a pupusa is made out of water, salt, and masa harina, which is the same ground cornmeal as tortillas.

At Barito Tacos & Cocktails, we top all of our pupusas with queso blanco and your choice of meat. Additionally, each pupusa is served with pickled vegetables, house slaw, cotija cheese, salsa roja, and crema Mexicana. For the stuffing, consider our bean and cheese pupusa, our Barito chicken pupusa, our duck confit pupusa, our roasted pork belly pupusa, our brisket pupusa, our seasonal fish pupusa, our seasonal vegetable pupusa, and so much more. Our menu is filled with pupusa options that are sure to please your palate.
