  1. the pupusas on Post Road in Westbury (which is half pizza shop and half Salvadoran restaurant...I THINK it's Usuluteco 186 Post ave) are good, but you needn't go that far from Manhattan. Go to Margarita's in Williamsburgh. Their pupusas aren't exceptional, but they're pretty reliably in the pocket. Good cabbage, too.
    It's on grand near roebling, and also try the frijoles frito, horchata (a rice drink with lots of cinammon) and one of every tamale they've got that day
