Family-Style Salvadoran Lunch at Jaraguá Restaurant

Before you read on, please make sure you know and understand Pleasure Palate's attendance policy, including the three-strike and no-show rules.

If you've lived in Los Angeles for some time, you'll notice that L.A. has a large Central-American community, especially in Koreatown and Mid-Wilshire, where you will find many Salvadoran and Guatemalan restaurants and bakeries. One of the best Salvadoran establishments in the area is Jaraguá, where you will find a lot more to Salvadoran food than just pupusas. This restaurant also has four stars on Yelp, and was featured recently in the L.A. Weekly.

Speaking of pupusas, we'll be sharing and sampling some of these tasty corn masa delights, as well as order various Salvadoran specialties from their menu:

Jaraguá is a pretty large restaurant, and there is a parking lot in the back. Please plan on bringing about $30 in cash for food, drink and tip.

Please note that this lunch is family-style, where we will be sharing dishes. Some will be vegetarian, but you must be open to paying an equal portion of the full bill: "Family-Style Dining: Dining for this event has been designated as Family-Style. The food bill will be split evenly between all attendees. Attendees will be responsible for paying for their own beverages. Please note that flexibility is an important part of family-style dining, and if you want to take a chance on attending, you have to be amenable to what the group/AO will order. You don't have to eat everything that is ordered, but everyone pays equally, whether you eat everything or not. Why this policy? The goal for family-style dining is to allow for the entire group to sample as wide a variety of dishes as possible. If one or more attendees choose to order on their own, that limits the group's choices, which defeats the purpose of what Family-Style Dining is all about. If this definition of Family-Style Dining doesn't feel comfortable, this may not be the right type of event for you."

    Good food and people, thanks for introducing me to Jaraguá Mary Jen. The restaurant is very reasonably priced and has a parking lot in back. Sorry I misled the group after, apparently Koo's Sweet Rice Pancake Ho-tteok Cart closed back in June. :-(
