Mama Tere is a Salvadoran spot that just opened in 2019 where you can get some fluffy, pupusas stuffed with things like beans, cheese, and edible flowers. Sit at the bar, and you can watch them being made. It’s a beautiful process. And once you finish one of these flattened balls of masa, have some steak or beef stew. This is exactly the kind of place where you’ll want to eat once a week.
