Monse Hines, who is from El Salvador, owns this family business, which serves curtido, a light cabbage salad that is used as a relish for many El Salvadorian dishes, and pupusas, corn flour cakes that are filled with cheese and meat. She produces everything in a commercial kitchen and sells them in local health foods stores and farmers markets. One taste and you’ll become an instant fan of the delicious crunchy salad and steamy hot corn bread pockets. Head to the website for ever-changing store locations.
