Papusas and Donuts in SF

cem3340 Oct 29, 2009 10:30 PM

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?

    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.

      sugar doughnut from Bob's on Polk

      maple and bacon doughnut from Dynamo on 24th

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