Solber Pupusas: Ballfields Pupusas With Cult Following

Ballfields Pupusas With Cult Following

The uninitiated ask, “What’s a pupusa?” Those who’ve experienced Solber Pupusas usually answer, “a forty-five minute wait that’s worth it.” This traditional food from El Salvador consists of grilled corn masa patties that are hand-shaped and stuffed with cheese and meat (chicharron, chicken, fish, even pepperoni) and vegetable (pumpkin flower, beans, spinach, and zucchini). Winning the Vendy’s in 2011 was almost like the food world’s version of an Oscar for lifetime achievement – Solber Pupusas has been being served at the Red Hook ballfields for more than a decade.
