Trying pupusas for the first time!

I had never had pupusas before visiting this El Salvadorian taqueria called Taqueria Los Gallos. A group of us stopped there before our outing to the Red Door Escape Room. The express shop is one of a couple in the Bay Area (this one was in Concord), and they offer all your classic taqueria bites, but the one that stood out to me was the pupusa.

A pupusa, I learned, is “a thick flatbread from El Salvador made with cornmeal or rice flour, similar to the arepa!” It is usually stuffed with ingredients like cheese, vegetables, meat, or beans. I was curious about what they were cooking on the grill and then they actually brought one to our table. Ours had cheese, kinda like a quesadilla (but not really, it is more fluffy/doughy).

Overall, I think they do good business; there were a lot of locals and Hispanics eating at the taqueria. Would I go back? Probably not, as it is a bit out of the way – down Willow Pass in the big strip mall. However, if you have a hankering for pupusas, then this is the place to go!
