Papusas in Charlotte.

Ciao Italia Foodie May 28, 2010 12:59 PM

I just finised the worst papusas ever that I picked up from Compare foods. I wanted to try something from the prepared food section and got papusas and chicken tamale. Yuck and Yuck.
I wanted to let anyone know that I am still recommending El Pulgarcito on Cental Ave.
Anyone else try them other places?

On another note, The flan at Compare foods is great , jmo

    I keep meaning to try the (relatively new) Salvadoran place at the corner of Sharon Amity and Harris Blvd., but haven't gotten there yet. Their window sign says they serve pupusas.

      I know this is a year late! But if anyone is looking for papusas in CLT, this is the place. Do not forget to order the tostones with beans and crema too.

        Better late then never!
        But, I'm already in the know about this place and really enjoy it. That day I posted I was in the mood for them and was really dissapointed with what I got at Compare, thats why I recommended El Pulgarcito but was wondering if I might be missing something somehwere.
        On that note, I noticed a new potential papusas spot opening soon on Central. It's where a pizza buffet use to be. Across from Las Delicias Bakery.
        MORAZAN is the name and it reads; Comida Salvadorena and they advertise papusas as well.
        I love the unknown.
