Nuevo Amanecer Pupuseria

Texto en español.

This site in its various incarnations has been a Latino restaurant for decades. Now home to the Nuevo Amanecer Pupuseria restaurant, it used to be until recently the Mexican restaurant Juan Colorado, and before that the well-known “Sabor a Mi” restaurant. This one-story building with its arched-windows and painted stucco exterior is a perfect example of vernacular architecture with strong Latino roots. (Pupusas are a traditional food offering from El Salvador but are also popular in neighboring Central American countries. They are tortillas stuffed with a choice of fillings, typically cheese and/or meat, and topped with a cabbage salad and red sauce.)
