December 19, 2008



Today I ran into an old lady at 19th and Mission selling pasteles and papusas out of her little shopping cart. I copped two pasteles for 2 bucks. These are kind of like empanadas, hell some people probably call them that. I’m not all up on my central american shit but whatever basically it’s a fried tube of awesome filled with carnitas and vegetables, sold in a sandwich bag with a handful of pickled cabbage and carrots. I’ve had these a few times at El Savodorian restaurants, they are fucking banging. Some yucatan/mayan restuarants make somethings similar, just kind of depends on who is doing the cooking. I wanted to cop some of this lady’s papusas but I didn’t have time for that shit. If you see these cop, they are tasty as fuck.
