Pupusas and Salvadoran food in Allentown

I was in Allentown today and happened upon the Cabañas Salvadoran Restaurant at 958 Hamilton Street, downtown. The lovely owner/waitress said they've been open just a month. Delicious pupusas ($1.25 each, choice of queso, chicharron, or revueltas--mixed) with a good cabbage curtido. I also had the carne asada lunch special ($5)--basic but quite tasty, with rice, refried beans, and wonderful thick handmade tortillas (Salvadoran style, more like an arepa than a Mexican tortilla). Also on the menu are typical latino dishes like pollo guisado, bistec encebollado, tamales, ceviche, etc., as well as hamburgers, hot dogs, and sandwiches. So if you need your pupusa fix, here's a place to get it!
