Three Perspectives on the Closing of Pupusódromo in Santa Ana
GOOD: Replacing Pupusódromo will be a restaurant specializing in tortas ahogadas, the regional specialty from Guadalajara that finds a torta drowned in viciously hot salsa and raw white onions. Not nearly enough places sell tortas ahogadas, and I hope the new restaurant will also sell other Jaliscan dishes like tejuino. No word yet on its opening.
HUH?: SanTana is the county's main home for Mexis from Mexico City, Michoacán, Guerrero, Oaxaca, and the Yucatan (among other states), but historically hasn't drawn immigrants from Jalisco. This new restaurant makes more sense in Anaheim or Orange, but whatever: bring on the tortas ahogadas!
