La Casa Maria
While driving by, what struck me about La Casa Maria on El Cajon Boulevard was that they offer both Mexican and Salvadorian food. I was interested in tasting some traditional Salvadorian dishes. The menu had a page of Salvadorian foods like pupusas, plantains, and pastelitos. The above is called pollo guisado which is chicken stewed in a tomato based sauce. The flavors were very different from the Mexican food I've had. One nice thing about this restaurant is the friendly family atmosphere. The owner, Maria, was our waitress and it felt like we were guests in her home. P.S.: Happy Birthday to my friend Jaine!
