The first night of the Route of Maya trip was spent in San Salvador. Our little boutique hotel turned out to be just 2 blocks from the manufacture plant of McCormick in El Salvador. It was an interesting surprise. I walked up to the plant to see if I could see the QA Manager there, but was not able to meet her as she was in a meeting.
A pupusa is a traditional Salvadoran dish made of a thick, handmade corn tortilla , a maize flour dough that is usually filled with a blend of cheese, cooked meat and refined beans. Pupusas are typically served with curtido (lightly fermented cabbage slaw with red chilies and vinegar) and a watery tomato salsa.
