El Salvador’s cuisine is based on a hybrid of native, corn-based fare, and European influence. El Salvador’s does have something quite unique to its shores. Something that it has managed to export to the rest of the world as its diaspora spread. That something is the humble pupusa. Made from masa dough, pupusas are thick corn cakes filled with a variety of ingredients such as pork, chicken, cheese or beans. For certain, they are always served with curtido, a wonderfully crunchy and tangy cabbage slaw, and a simple red salsa.
