Pupuseria Emerita

Over in Moorefield, West Virginia, there is a real, authentic pupuseria.

Pupuseria EmeritaWhat is a pupuseria? It's where pupusas are sold! What are pupusas? Well, let's turn to Wikipedia:

Pupuseria Emerita
"A pupusa is a thick flatbread from El Salvador made with cornmeal or rice flour, similar to the Venezuelan and Colombian arepa. It is usually stuffed with one or more ingredients. These may include cheese, chicharrón, squash, or refried beans."

And I had to try some of these pupusas.

Pupuseria EmeritaOn the day I went, they had five different kinds. I ordered shrimp & cheese, pork & cheese, and one that had a plant, similar to cactus.

These are like savory little fluffy pancakes with a filling inside.
