Awesome Atlacatl

Homey, sit-down, inexpensive restaurant with friendly service.

My friends and I shared several pupusas – the cheese and frijoles pupusa (uses a white cheese, which is a delicious mellow offset to the frijoles), pork pupusa (ground pork, very hearty); queso con loroco (a type of flower, tastes like a cross between broccoli and asparagus), and the combination (beef, pork, and i think either cheese or chicarones). The pupusas are so filing and good. My favorites were the queso con frijoles and the queso con loroco. I also had a taste of this scrambled egg dish with frijoles; surprisingly tasty and not overly eggy. The fried plantains appetizer had a delicately crispy outer coating with a very custard-y center.

I would like to return to try the cheese and pork pupusa and the other non-pupusa dishes.

Dishes I tried:

Plupusa Con Queso Y Loroco

Loroco is a type of flower, tastes like a cross between broccoli and asparagus. In combination with the white cheese inside the pupusa, both refreshing and creamy.

In Pupusa Heaven

The other night four of us decided to try the El Salvadoran restaurant Atlacatl. We were all familiar with its large yellow sign from driving by on Beverly Boulevard, but none of had as yet ventured in nor eaten El Salvadoran food in a restaurant.
The path to the door of the restaurant ( in a little house) was hung with lanterns, a very nice touch. Once inside we were transported to another world, lively and full of Spanish speakers.
The menu offers many traditional dishes, most of which we were unfamiliar with. We were so hungry that we got a bit carried away with the ordering!
The stars of the show were definitely the pupusas de loroco y queso. Loroco, small unopened edible flower buds, are used a lot in El Salvadorean cuisine and taste a little of asparagus. These pupusas had a marvellous creamy flavour and texture, the melting cheese, the masa flat bread and the loroco. Adding another dimension was added to this by the curtido or cabbage salad which was delivered to the table in a huge jar to which we could help ourselves to our palates’ content.
The pastelitos de puerco e verduras were a little disappointing . Deep fried ovals with a pureed filling that was not very flavourful.
We ordered the atol de elote having no idea what to expect. It ended up being a bowl of corn soup, rather on the sweet side for our taste. Apparently this dish has Mayan roots which is interesting from an historical perspective.
The mojarra entomatada, a whole tilapia served with tomato, cucumber and black bean puree was perfection, the fish sweet and moist.
Probably the weirdest thing we had was the Chilate con nuegados, platanos y camotes en miel. This was a mixture of plantains, sweet potatoes and fried beignet type things shaped like mushrooms, in a honey sauce accompanied by Chilate. We could not figure out what Chilate was made of so today I did my research and discovered that it based on atol with the addition of cacao and chile. It makes a good companion to the nuegados…
All of this was accompanied by freshly made small rounds of flat bread and numerous bottles of Salvadoran beer!!!!
The service deserves a mention as it was very warm and friendly. The waitress had a hard time describing the food to us but she did her best with a smile!
