El Poblano in Colorado Springs is yummy and has pupusas!

Ever have a pupusa? They’re really popular in L.A. They’re delicious! I haven’t given them much thought since being here but recently we were driving down Circle and saw a big sign that said “pupusas” in front of a restaurant called El Poblano at 908 N. Circle Dr.  Then I started thinking about them again.

The first time we tried to go they looked open but were actually closed. The handwritten sign on the door said they were at the “banko.” No kidding. Banko.

But the second time we had good luck.

It’s a smallish place with a couple of tables. You order at the counter and they bring it to you.

And now for the pupusas. They were great! And since they’re the only people in Colorado Springs who make them, that’s even better.

So, anyway, El Poblano is highly recommended. The burrito was good, at least as good as any other place like this in town, and they have pupusas! Oh yea, and they also have Mexican Coke in a bottle.
