Latin American: Pupusas at the Brooklyn Flea

October 26, 2010 By: Serena




Continuing my food tour at the Brooklyn Flea (I sampled cupcakes and hot dogs here and here), I recently had my first Flea pupusa from a stand manned by the Red Hook Food Vendors.  What exactly is a pupusa? Keep reading…

A pupusa is a dish originating from El Salvador, with a thick corn tortilla surrounding gooey cheese, meat, beans and squash.  All this goodness is topped with a cabbage slaw, thin salsa and crema.  We added some plantains and sausage to seal the deal. The result was sweet, salty, savory, chewy and crispy – a taste and texture explosion, if you will.

The diverse mix of flavors in the pupusa may be a bit of an acquired taste – my eating buddy wasn’t as crazy about it as I was.  However, if you’re ever at the Brooklyn Flea or the Red Hook Ball Fields, give the pupusas a try!

An interesting flavor combination worth a try!

  3. Try Anything Once Terri says:

    I go to these guys all of the time!! I love their pupusas.

  4. that looks so good! I love crunchy and gooey textures together.

  5. That looks alot better than the one I had at the Oakland Food Fest here in CA. I didn't like it either but will give it a second chance given the right vendor.

  6. Chic 'n Cheap Living says:

    I've had them at the Brooklyn flea – 3 apples for me too!

  7. That looks delicious! I need to find someone who makes it here in the SF bay area.

  8. I'm not a huge bean lover but it certainly looks amazing. Everything else in there is right up my ally so I would probably make an exception for this. 😉

  9. Hmmm that sounds really interesting! I think I'd have to give that a go…

  10. Again with the whole NY/Dallas thing. I'd love to get my hands on some of these, but while Dallas is choc full of Tex Mex, it's a little more difficult to find good food from other South American countries. All that to say, I'm jealous.

  11. I remember pepusas from my trips to El Salvador, but this looks so much better!!


  12. Newport Nuptials says:

    I love the Brooklyn flea, I try to eat something different everytime I go, I haven;t had these yet.

  13. I was wondering if you ever considered changing the page layout of your site?
    Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.

    But maybe you could a little more in the way of
    content so people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful
    lot of text for only having 1 or 2 pictures. Maybe you could space it out better?
