Pupusas in Westchester

  • f

Does anybody know a good place for pupusas in Westchester? Ossining or Portchester area would be best.

  1. There is an El Salvadorean restaurant in Mt. Kisco on Main Street. They also have a small grocery next door. I think the name has the word Rincol in it. Really not sure. You could call the Mango Cafe, which is right across the street and ask them. Sorry. I've eaten lunch at the restaurant and the food is good.

      I have driven past that place many times and had no idea it was Salvadorian. I will give it a try. Thanks!

        I went there today. The pupusas were really delicious and seemed authentic, and the tacos, too, but the horchata's a little... iffy.

        The specifics:

        Rincon Santaneco's
        219 E Main St.
        Mt. Kisco NY 10549

        It's kind of a hike for me, but it's certainly worth going to if you're in the area.

          Since this old thread's been resurrected, thought I'd point to this place that has phenomenal pupusas:

          I've seen rincon in mt kisco for a few years bet never tried it. looks like I'll need to give it a go.

          Oh, and for what it's worth, salvadoran horchata always seems off to me... it looks (and kinda tastes) like dirty horchata. There's something else in it that isn't in Mexican horchata. Not sure what it is, but it generally doesn't tickle my fancy either...

    2. port chester has a few places. El Rinconcito (I think that is the name...) on south main is probably the best, though it's been ages since I've been there. Next to tortilleria los gemelos on westchester ave is another salvedorian place, called pupuseria loco or something like that. I didn't have pupusas there, so I can't vouch for them, but I did have a lunch there that was just so-so. I think el rinconcito is your best bet. good luck and report back - we need a new report.

        I was in kisco today and decided to have lunch at Rincon Santaneco's. I've never had pupusas before so I have no point of reference. I had a cheese pupusa that was absolutely delicious and two chicken tacos which were fresh, huge, but not that well spiced.

        I'm definitely going back to try some other dishes and varieties of papusa...pork skin and cheese sounds killer...
