El Atlacatl Restaurante

3199 S.W. 8th St.
Miami , FL , United States
(305) 649-8000

This Little Havana eatery is widely popular with locals for its authentic Salvadorean cuisine and generous portions. Made with the freshest ingredients, menu items include the ever-popular pupusas, corn tortillas stuffed with fillings like revueltos, a mixture of cheese, beans, and chicharron (pork rinds). Homemade soups, especially the mariscada Salvadoreña (Salvadoran seafood soup) are also well-liked, as is the bistec Salvadoreña, a spicy, Salvadorian-style steak. The bustling restaurant is usually packed, and there’s often a DJ on hand playing Salvadoran music, as well as salsa and merengue so don’t expect a quiet meal.
