I can hardly wait for my annual trip to Los Angeles with a group of high school students, and this restaurant is one of the reasons why. I had no idea what a pupusa was before coming here the first time, but now I am forever hooked on the great quality and great taste of the pupusas made here. Even... More

Got a pork, bean and cheese pupusa served with the spicy cabbage salad. Really tasty and so cheap. Cooked fresh to order. I recommend getting one while a friend holds your spot in the eggslut line

Well I'd say its a close cousin of the tacos but in thicker sense. Kidding aside this was very yummy but the wait it long even when there wasn't much of line. Like their homemade hot sauce, not too spicy but very tasty.

Honestly I just hadn't eaten a pupusa in a really long time and the line at lunch time was reasonable so I decided to order some lunch. I ordered two pupusas (cheese and beans; cheese and chicken), plus a side of platanos (grilled banana) and an horchata (Salvadoran style). It was a descent wait time about 10-15 considering the pupusas... More

Look for the blue neon when you come to the Central Market to eat. I have never had pupusa, two thick corn tortillas with filling between them. Their tortillas are home made, and choices of filling are beans, potatoes, cheese, meat, and more that I cannot remember. When they ask you if you want cabbage on top, the correct answer... More

I've eaten here previously when in LA but never again. I was asked whether I would eat there or take away, I said I would eat there and sat down on the stools at the end of their stall. After a long wait my number was called at the other (take away) end of the stall, and two pupusas trussed... More

I love getting their pupusas and they are so good! They make it fresh and you can watch them make it as well. The service is fast and I recommend going there for their food.

Great fresh pupusa cook to order. You have to have patience waiting for them to get the food ready. Not cheap comparing to regular pupusa places but fun.

Having lunch at Grand Central and decided to try the pupusa's here. They are cooked to order, handmade right in front of you. I ordered the pork with a side of plantains. They put a spicy cabbage slaw on top. This is definitely not "fast food" but worth the wait. When you finally get them they are steaming since they... More

My girlfriend and I each had one (her the Cheese me the Pork) and man were they really good..! Cooked so fresh and piping hot that you had to give them a moment to cool. We both had the spicy cabbage slaw on top of our and it only enhanced the taste even more! Now a bit of warning...like it... More

Staying in Downtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Downtown Los Angeles is a busy metropolis of towering buildings, bustling streets, and industrial warehouses. There is a distinct multiplicity of cultures here with a growing influx of business professionals and hipsters. Many call the evolution of Downtown over recent years gentrification. New lofts, bars, hotels and restaurants are popping up regularly. Downtown is home to some of the very best restaurants in the city leading the LA foodie scene, plus it is the location of cultural and sports venues including the Walt Disney Concert Hall, the Staples Center, and the Coliseum at the University of Southern California.
