Papusas and Donuts in SF

I was walking around Mission this evening after dining at Inkas (helluva tip, ty Chowhounds), and noticed several papuserias.

I searched the board but couldn't seem to find any information on specific spots. I very much enjoy a bean and cheese pupusa and would appreciate any leads to finding a good one here in the city.

Likewise, Yellow Brick Cafe's donuts sounded really cool, but is there anything similar or equally appealing on the donut front?

  1. Balompie, on 18th and Capp is good. Don't forget to order their pasteles as well - like a meat fritter (you can get chicken or pork). They're fried, but not greasy, very fresh and served hot. Yummy. Their pupusas are good and less lardy than La Santaneca on Mission St.

    1. There are only two doughnuts I occasionally crave:

      sugar doughnut from Bob's on Polk

      maple and bacon doughnut from Dynamo on 24th

      Dynamo Donuts and Coffee
      2760 24th St, San Francisco, CA 94110

      1. Try searching the board for "pupusa" not "papusa" since it's not the correct spelling.
