Pupuseria Divino Corazon Restaurant Review

: Just across the bridge from downtown New Orleans, this cheery spot bears a name that translates as Sacred Heart Pupusa Shop, and a large framed picture of the Sacred Heart of Jesus is prominently displayed. The pupusa is a thick corn tortilla filled with meat or cheese, and here they come stuffed with minced pork, cheese or both. The steak tacos are showstoppers, as is the slightly addictive salsa that comes with the complimentary chips. The tamal de elote is the pupusa's top challenger, a satisfying tamale holding fresh, creamy corn and served with a sauce resembling crème fraîche. The nachos Chihuahua are also noteworthy, as are the fried plantains, rellenos and empanadas. These are the classics of the Central American snack and street-food repertoire. Deciding between the freshly baked pineapple pastries and the tres leches cake will not be easy, so perhaps go with both.
