Usuluteco El Salvadorean Restaurant

2012-06-09 12.06.11.jpg

Brian and I tried a new restaurant over the weekend. We’d heard so many good things that we just had to try it. It’s El Salvadorean. Our server spoke to me only in Spanish so I ordered in Spanish. Apparently, I made a face, so Brian got worried and asked what was going on. I told him it was a surprise. Well, that wasn’t the right thing to say because it freaked him out even more. He insisted on knowing exactly what was going on. So I explained that when I asked for water, she asked me if I wanted pineapple or tamarind. I made a face because I was confused about the flavors. That would make it juice, not water. She said it was delicious and that I would like it so I picked pineapple, as Brian has had pineapple juice before and liked it. He’s never had tamarind before. Anyway, I think the pineapple water is pretty popular because I saw the same thing being delivered to people at the other tables.

I thought the pineapple water was awesome. Brian didn’t like it as much. It had chunks of fresh pineapple so it’s a lot like pulpy orange juice. Brian doesn’t like pulp. I felt bad but, at the same time, figured there’d be more of the yummy pineapple water for me to drink. LOL.

Brian ordered the papusas con todo. Con todo means it’s filled with everything: meat, beans, and cheese. Brian said it was delicious, but could have used more meat filling.

Usuluteco Restaurant on Urbanspoon

I had the fried tilapia with rice and beans. I believe it was the special for the day. I love, love, love tilapia so I was super thrilled to find it on the menu. It was good, but I couldn’t help but wish I had some soy sauce for dipping.

I really liked Usuluteco. It seemed very authentic. The only downside for me is the location. It’s so far away. Then again, that’s a good thing. Otherwise, Brian would be eating out there more frequently, and well know that we shouldn’t be eating out so much. LOL.
