  1. We finally got around to checking out La Casita, a pupuseria and carryout in a tiny little strip near the corner of Piney Branch Road and Dale Drive. The pupusas mixtas had a nice little crunch to the outside, creamy beans, and good curtido. Carne Asada was respectable and the grilled shell-on jumbo shrimp, Camarones a la Plancha, were much better than expected. All Platos de La Casita come with yellow rice studded with tiny pieces of carrot, and either pureed and rather soupy refried red beans or a surprisingly fresh salad. We ordered Enchiladas Salvadorenas (corn tortillas fried until very c
  2. I live in Takoma Park, just off New Hampshire Ave, and about a mile or so away from La Chiquita, which as at the intersection of on the NE corner of the intersection of New Hampshire and East-West Highway. IMO, they make some of the best pupusas I've ever had. When my wife and I have gone there, we're typically the only gringos in the place. They don't have an official web site (at least not that I could find) but there are some pretty good reviews http://www.thenewave.com/go/la-chiquita http://www.yelp.com/biz/la-chiquita---latin-american-food-takoma-park http://www.washingtonpost.com/gog
  3. Good tacos and pupusas at My Las Delicias Deli, near the old Swahili space at that hideous junction of rt 1 and Rhode Island. Not sure what was there before. My Las Delicias Deli (Unofficial) Facebook Page
  4. I've been driving down Georgetown Pike for twenty years or so, and don't ever remember Kabob Place not being in downtown Great Falls, although it has changed ownership fairly recently. It's now operated, I believe, by the Ternisky family (if you've ever come across a pediatric dentist named Ternisky in Fairfax County, that's the father). These folks also own Romantica Pizzeria next door, and I suspect they might have taken control of Kabob Place from the previous owners, who were Persian, due to its proximity. Kabob Place used to be extremely expensive for what it was - in fact, I believe
  5. I can't believe that I never got around to giving el Golfo its own thread. I'll warn to begin with that this will be one of the most biased shill-y posts to ever appear on this site. I love this place. It's the neighborhood gem that every area should have. Last night's Puerco Adovado (pork loin marinated in citrus) and Camarones Azteca (Shrimp and Broccoli in a light citrusy sauce) were delicious and hearty. Stick with the non tex-mex stuff and the fish (from their own market with its entrance around the corner) The margaritas serve their purpose. Last night I opted for a Negra Modelo. But
  6. after hearing about this place from the Post's list of must-try dishes, we had some pupusas from here this weekend and they were great, the best pupusas i've had in a while. The place was packed at 2 pm on a saturday, and i understand why. The pupusas ($2 each) are about 4 inches wide, the stuffing-to-shell ratio leans more heavily towards the stuffing, which is how i prefer them, though the corn still added its sweet flavor to everything, they offer both rice and corn shells,we only got corn, but the very nice man behind the counter said the queso pupusa with the rice shell was great. they
  7. The City Paper recently gave this place rave reviews. I was skeptical; El Charrito has my pupusa bar set high. But Mi Comalito delivers. The revuelta pupusa is a hair less delicious than El Charrito's, but far above many others I've had. The pork inside was crispy and loaded with cheese. Beans and plantains were almost as good as El Charritos as well. The tamale was average, eh you can't win them all. I'll be back to try the tacos, baleadas, and enchiladas. My major quibble is you can only order pupusas and tamales individually. Tacos come in threes, baleadas in twos.
  8. This is an excellent place for anyone looking for quality fresh latin food. In the back of the market there is a butcher, that has excellent meats btw, where orders are taken for the food. They offer a range of food low prices. Today I had a bean and cheese pupusa, slaw and two corn tamales for a whopping $4.00. The meal is served with fresh pico and sour cream. The store is located on old lee highway a bit east from the lee heights shopping center. LA UNION GROCERY 4308 Lee Hwy Arlington, VA 22207 703-812-9484
  9. Took out our staff to Irene's last night (well actually mostly the kitchen & bus staff, waiters were out partying). With 25 folk in attendance, most of the menu was sampled. This place is seriously good cheap eats! Pupusas are about as grease free as a pupusa can be. Mixtos con todos are a sloppy mess but delicious. Very strongly flavored curtado spiked with an unknown to me black herb/seed. The breakdown on the pupusas were the latino folk averaged 2 pupusa's per person plus an entree, the gringos about 1/2 a pupusa. Baliadas are huge tortillas folded over good fillings. I have had
