Lonely Planet review for El Majahual
Even if papusa isn't part of your dining vocabulary, it'll become your new favorite word after you try El Majahual's Salvadoran pocket of fried dough stuffed with ground pork, green chili, and queso (cheese) loaded with pickled cabbage and salsa - yep, that's an around US$3 meal.
The Colombian side of the menu is pricier and a little lackluster compared to the Salvadoran papusas and tamales, but the fried yucca and plantains, passionfruit juice, and zesty sancocho de gallina (Colombian hen soup) are definite crowd-pleasers.
