El Pulgarcito De America

Venue Info

Charlotte’s Little El Salvador, smaller than a full city block but full of life, is home to El Pulgarcito de America, where the nation’s specialties are served in an unglamorous diner-like atmosphere. The offerings are broad, with creamy chicken tossed with onions and peppers over rice, halved plantains cooked to golden brown and cilantro-sprinkled seafood soup with crab legs curling over the side of the bowl; but pupusas should be your primary purpose when visiting. The corn tortilla pockets are packing warm helpings of cheese, pork or beans. Try the chicharrones (crisped pork) with a cold Corona.
