Reviews for Platano

I mean, what can I say?  Damn good pupusas!

Lunch Special #1 is my go-to.  I get the pork, beans, & cheese + veggie & cheese pupusas :) comes with beans, plantains, and sour cream (which I usually omit.). ASK FOR EXTRA CURTIDO - thank me later!  I always enjoy extraaa curtido (and extra salsa!)

The plantains are nicely caramelized and are soft to the touch, yet still manages to be firm enough to keep its' shape and is my fav thing ever!  Mmm, I'm already full review
Open during pandemic.
Street parking available.
Ordered food online and order was ready promptly.
Tried the #1 lunch special which includes 2 pupusas and bananas.
I've haven't eaten Salvadoran food much so it's a new experience.
The food was pipping hit when handed to me, which was great since we needed to walk back to the car to eat.
The beef cheese pupusa was better than the pork bean cheese pupusa.
The bananas were a puzzle to me, not much taste full review
I've always pass by this restaurant on University but never was curious enough to stop and get some food. On one lazy afternoon my partner and I and my daughter have lunch together. Isn't that sweet? We ordered pupusa's of many varieties including the pork and cheese and we also ordered the empanada the Leche. Everything was really really tasty. The pupusa's were using with cheese and meat, they were not dry and the corn was not too thick. The cortido (cabbage mixture) was full review
