IMG_0124Picture it. Months of having the 100 members of my entourage packed and awaiting transportation to our new home in Cambridge, the endless packing and cleaning of the house in St. Louis, we finally arrived in San Francisco for our 6 week stay. I am not ashamed to say that my paws were dog tired. Luckily one of my favorite restaurants in San Francisco is only 4 blocks away, El Majahual.

This is an unassuming place. A hole in the wall some would say with perhaps eight tables. The food is Salvadorian and Columbian, and the woman (yes singular, just one woman making all that wonderful food) in the kitchen makes everything from scratch. It’s homemade, fresh, and absolutely delicious. It’s hard to get any better than this.

Two pupusas (one cheese and one ground pork), served with rice and beans.. Each menu item is served with a house made red sauce and a delicious sweet and spicy cabbage mixture called, Curtido. As you can tell from the picture, I was so excited that I began eating before taking the picture. Yes, it’s that good!

If you’re in San Francisco near Valencia and 22nd street and in the mood for some of the best Salvadorian and Colombian food, stop in for a quick bit. You won’t be sorry.
