nena's, new owner, remodeled and great salvadorean breakfast.

ate at nena's on mission near cortland sat. the salvadorean chorizo and eggs scrambled with onions, green pepper and tomatoes was delicious. the dish came with casamiento (rice and beans), queso, and homemade salvadorean tortilla (thick and very, very tasty). all the food was carefully and thoughtfully prepared- excellent flavor and ingredients and very "clean" (not greasy) tasting. the service was warm, friendly and efficient. they have american breakfasts as well but will always have salvadorean breakfast- just ask if the sign is not displayed. my friends had platanos and eggs which were likewise fresh and flavorful.

  1. Thanks Jane. This sounds like a good tip. Do they have Salvadorian food for lunch and dinner?

    There was a brief mention of good pupusas in a Bernal Heights topic, but don't know if the posters experience there was since the ownership change.

    Does the menu still look the same?

    Do you have any info about the new owner?

    1. Yes, that menu should be correct. I like their pupusas, which at (I believe) $1.75 are among their more affordable offerings. I hated the slaw that came with them, though. In looking at the breakfast menu, it seems like they've tamed down their prices, because I thought it was way overpriced at first.
