Most people in Tampa cannot tell you what a pupusa is, which is a sharp contrast Northern California where El Salvadorean and Central American cuisine can be found on almost every block. Pupusas are something similar to tasty corn dough tortillas stuffed with your choice of ingredients from cheese and refried beans to deep fried pork belly, also called chicharron. It only takes two to get me full and at $2 each - Pupuseria CentroAmericana is a steal. The service staff struggles a little with English so if you have a Spanish speaking friend it may help enhance your experience. They have great options for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. I love their refried beans, sour cream, plaintains, and steak combo. Most things are the menu are also under $10 and many things under $8. My parents are huge fans of their soups, which helps my mother through any sick day. If you have never tried Central American cuisine, I highly suggest you try pupusas and give this restaurant a shot - just make sure you call ahead first to make sure they are open as hours and openings can vary from time to time.
Pros: The only Central American restaurant in Tampa - selling delicious pupusas with affordable pricing.
Cons: May be a little tough to experience well without speaking at least a little Spanish
