Benito's Place -- Salvadorean and Mexican in Logan Circle

Recommended Posts

I haven't posted much recently because I haven't had many meals that have been inspiring one way or the other.  That changed last night.  I went to Benito's Place by myself and had a delightful experience.  The mole guerrero was a brilliant ruby red, with incredible depth and a lovely kick, accompanied by beans, rice and fresh tortillas.  The pupusas were gooey and much lighter than most pupusas I've had in the area, which I've found to be mealy and dense.  Service was lovely, space was quiet and friendly.  All for $20 + tip. Highly recommended on a cold winter night or, really, any night.

WaPo had a favorable write-up of it last year.  https://www.washingtonpost.com/goingoutguide/benitos-place-restaurant-a-fantastic-food-tour-of-latin-america/2018/02/12/94313f22-0cf6-11e8-95a5-c396801049ef_story.html?utm_term=.d8edca7dc24a
