Location Description:

Cuzcatlan is a Salvadoran restaurant in Anaheim. It makes pupusas as thick as a terra cotta saucer from rim to base, and nearly as wide, cheesy and doughy and perfect. There is an American and Mexican menu as well, but focus on the Salvadoran stuff: fatty sopa de pata, masses of fried yucca, horchata with a cinnamon kick. And it also serves casamiento, one of the finest breakfasts on Earth: black beans mixed with white rice and accompanied by scrambled eggs, a dollop of crema fresca and a block of cotija, each part collectively hitting all the breakfast notes you can ever desire.
