At La Cocotera eco resort we know that the food in El Salvador is hearty and full of soul. We want to provide you with the freshest ingredients to your El Salvadorian meals when you are staying at our eco resort.
A typical El Salvadoran diet includes rice, beans and seafood, particularly for those who live on the coast. A variety of traditional dishes are also unique to El Salvador, including the famous Pupusa, a round corn tortilla stuffed with cheese and other elements, usually refried beans or chicharron, seasoned fried pork rinds. There are also vegetarian options with ayote, a type of squash, or garlic.
El Salvador cuisine also includes indulgent fare such as fried sliced plantains (platanos), which are commonly served with beans, sour cream and cheese, and sometimes with eggs, yucca (cassava) root with chicharron, pastelitos de carne (similar to meatloaf), handmade tortillas, or panes con pavo (marinated turkey sandwiches). Panes con pavo is traditionally served with turkey, tomato, and watercress along with cucumber, onion, lettuce, mayonnaise, and mustard.
Other traditional dishes include Yuca frita, fried yucca served with chicharon or curtido (pickled cabbage, onion and carrot), and panes relleno, a Salvadorean style torta topped with a spicy sauce. Soups and stews are also extremely popular.
At La Cocotera eco resort, you can enjoy fresh El Salvador seafood dishes, freshly squeezed juice and locally grown and roasted coffee, all included in your stay. Meals are prepared in the kitchen daily and are served in the open air rancho adjacent to the pool.
