    Get the pupusas that's what else El Salvador is known for. I used to live there long time. If they are super dry and very doughy sitting like pellets don't eat them. Catastrophe later. Enjoy!

    Just called - 5 tables inside and 5 tables outside. Each table seats four. I would say that we should put a limit of 15 so that it isn't overcrowded and try to snag the outside seats so we can push the tables together.

    When is a good date for people??

      They close at 9p. So maybe 5-8 or 6-9?

      6-9 would be perfect

    Cafe Guanaco seems to have 100% fantastic reviews on UrbanSpoon. Reviews state that it's very authentic El Salvadorian food. Limited but delicious menu - Prices look very reasonable. It's not Puerto Rican food, like I've been craving, but a lot of the dishes on the menu look very similar to those I'm use to. If we do a MeetUp here, I'm thinking we may need to put a limit on head count - as it doesn't look like a very big place : /

      I've been there and agree that it's got wonderful food! Mmmmm....pupusas!! Also agree it would be tough to fit more than a dozen folks in their tiny space (less than half the size of Chanon Thai Cafe).

    The dishes you mention sound more Latin or Caribbean, not Spanish. For Caribbean foods, there's only one spot around that I'm aware of (Adobo's). There are a number of Latin restaurants. And a couple of high-end Spanish joints (Cafe Madrid and Finca).

      Coming from an area where the latino demographic was 98% Puerto Rican....we, as well as our Puerto Rican friends referred to such fare as Spanish food in general. But I guess since it was really Puerto Rican cuisine, it would be considered Caribbean or Latin in other parts.
