Tucked away at 105 Weaver Street, an authentic pupuseria awaits. The Florinditas Pupuseria is a family owned spot near downtown Sulphur Springs, TX. Behind the counter are two charming ladies who hail from El Salvador. The immigration of their family from El Salvador started with their Mother, who decided to escape a 12 year civil war.
During the course of a week, many family members help out, and each contributes in their own way. Several components come together to make a pupusa, and each is prepared on site.
A pupusa might be described at a flatbread filled with meat, cheese vegetables and spices, then cooked on a flat griddle. They are served with a slaw… and a spicy sauce that one should add to taste. Traditional Latin beverages are served, including horchata. Soft drinks are also available. However, due to their Christian beliefs, absolutely no alcohol will be served. The menu is simple, with specials added periodically.
The hours are somewhat restricted, but they are expanding due to increased response. Thursday 10 – 6, Friday and Saturday 10 – 9, and Sunday 10 – 6.
This is as close to a trip to El Salvador you can get without boarding an airplane. Call ahead for take-out at (903) 919 – 5002. Salud!
