At Eliana's, a sunny, spacious Salvadoran spot just north of McDowell, the best way to start things off is with the special combination appetizer, which includes one pupusa (a doughy tortilla oozing with cheese and pork filling), a deep golden pastele Salvadorenos de carne (fried meat pie), and a chicken tamale. That's enough to make a meal, but entrees like pollo encebollado (chicken and onions in a mouthwatering tomato sauce) are just as appealing. And if you like horchata, try the Salvadoran version here -- it's made with ground morro seeds, which give it a nutty flavor similar to sesame. Read our review.
