Pupusa Day 2011

I hope everyone celebrated National Pupusa Day along with El Salvador. We did!


I ordered una de loroco, una de queso y una revuelta … (con una “ESprite” por tomar.)

Earlier in the day when we told the boys we would be eating pupusas for dinner because it was National Pupusa Day, our oldest son asked, “What exactly do they do on Pupusa Day in El Salvador?”

Before I could answer, our younger son piped up, rolling his eyes at his big brother’s ignorance, “On Pupusa Day they worship pupusas!”

Don’t worry – I straightened our cipote out after having a good laugh.

¡Feliz Día de la Pupusa, guanacos!

  1. Those were hilarious videos! Thanks for sharing another cultural moment with us! Feliz dia de la Pupusa! :)

  2. I’ve never tried one, Tracey. They look tempting. I’m curious, what’s that huge jar in the middle of the table with orange stuff in it?

    • Looks like Salvadoran pickled carrots. The other jar looks like curtido (cabbage, oregano, carrot, salt, vinegar, pineapple, & jalapeño). ñum ñum ñum

      • Glenn is correct! :) … “Curtido” is a pickled/slightly fermented cabbage salad that is eaten with pupusas :)

  3. How did I miss this? I need more pupusas in my life.

  4. Te tengo una pregunta comadre amiga…in that song a mi me gustan las pupusas, he sings son pasteles, son tamales, son “garrobos” (I think that is what I heard?) yuca frita?….What is a garrobo? Google is telling me it is some type of iguana looking lizard.

    • Hola comadre :) Sí, en la canción está diciendo, “no son pasteles, no son tamales, no son garrobos” – etc. Tienes razón – garrobos son lizards. Some people like to eat them!

  5. If I had my way every day would be pupusa day. Revuelto of course!
