Good pupusas in the East Bay?

A really good Salvadorn restaurant and Bakery opened in the past few months.
San Pablo: Susy's Bakery and Deli – Pleasing pupusas and gorgeous geletinas
It seemed to me that these were the best pupusas I had tried in the East Bay. Its been years since I did a pupusa crawl, so I revisited a few places to see if that was true. It was. Susy's makes the best local pupusas.
Here's some other places I tried in the past few days in order of preference
San Pablo: El Tazumal Salvadoran Restaurant revisited
Richmond: Pupusas revisited at La Bamba
Skip, skip, skip the pre-made pupusas at Las Montanas
I haven't revisited others joints such as Kaliente (which was in my old #2 spot) or Las Americas (only 99 cents but all I remember about it was the smell of lard).
So where are other good pupusa joints?
I agree! The first time I tried them at the swap meet, I had the combo which had everything: beans, cheese and chicarone. Delicious. Second time went back because the first was so memorable. Not quite as good as the first time. They had put the cabbage on top and that had made things soggy. Lesson learned. I found these better tasting than the truck on International (forgot the name).
