Restaurante Acajutla Restaurant Review

: This Mexican-Salvadoran restaurant has pleasant service and family-style ambience. The kitchen has come up with an ambitious menu, and as expected when restaurants blend these two cuisines, you'll find such standards as the Salvadoran pupusa and the mariscada (seafood soup with shrimp, clams and crabs). Taquitos and mini chimis appetizers, plus assorted other Mexican dishes (the cheddar enchiladas were particularly good), are fine but not arresting. For dessert, the Salvadoran flan or Mexican apple chimichanga are your best bets, but forget the fried ice cream. Kids have their own menu.
