the pupusas i tried there were really good and cheap. this place has potential of herds of crowds but kept like a secret by arlington spanish residents. give this place a try they sell mainly savadorian food and also mexican theyre number is 7038070126 las tunas restaurant arlington va
Can you tell me more about what exactly a pupusa is and what types I should try? Anything else to recommend? My SO lives around the corner and I have looked longingly at the place but it looked a tad dangerous but perhaps I am just a chicken. If I knew what I was looking for I would feel a lot better!
Thanks for any info!
I've not been to Las Tunas. I never get to Va. In D.C., however, I like the pupusas at La Casa Juanita. It's located on 12th St. north of the Convention Center.
Went to Las Tunas last night with a friend, the pupusas were tasty as were the tameles-- very fresh tasting. Only, they were out of Salvadoran beer, which I had been looking forward to trying. There was also a drunk overly friendly patron who kept offering us beers and a ride home, while tempting, we chose to decline. Then another patron, with more subtle technique, told us he would play for us the only non-latino song on the jukebox, which turned out to be bob marley's No Woman No Cry. I was touched, I think.
I'll back you up on your Las Tunas claim. It's a hole in the wall but the food is authentic.
I must also give props to Restaurante El Salvador at 4805 Columbia Pike Arlington, VA (703) 521-3225 near the intersection at 4 Mile Run. It's impossible to park but the food is very good. Check out the latin grocery next door while you're there.
