Traditional Salvadoran Pupusas at Salvatoria Kitchen and Bar | Bite Size


[MUSIC PLAYING] My name is Astrid
Portillo, and I’m the owner of Salvatoria Kitchen and Bar. We’ve been open for three years
in the height of the Astoria. Today we’re here at Salvatoria
Bar and Kitchen in Astoria, Queens where Blanca and
Rosa are going to teach us how to do the traditional
Salvadoran pupusas which every Salvadoran
grows up eating, including myself considering
that my parents are Salvadoran. And I grew up eating pupusas
my whole entire life. I remember growing
up, my mother would cook pupusas at
home, and it would bring the whole family together. And she sort of inspired
me to bring the tradition of El Salvador to other people. So we opened Salvatoria Kitchen
and Bar in a modern look so all Salvadorians could
feel proud of their country, and also bringing new customers
from all over the world to experience our cuisine. [SPEAKING SPANISH] We’ll grab the masa first. [SPEAKING SPANISH] So you have to dent it
a little bit, I guess. So we’re going to put the cheese
in the middle of the pupusa. You start closing it
until it’s fully closed. We have people from India,
Australia, China, Japanese. They all come to a
taste what is a pupusa? So we explain a little
bit of how we make it, and everybody goes home happy. This is my pupusa right here. [SPEAKING SPANISH] She called my pupusa
a bad pupusa, So– [SPEAKING SPANISH] If you don’t know
what a pupusa is, you need to come and
experience for yourself. It’s a delicious dish. And if you know El
Salvador, you know pupusas.
