No too exciting. We were waiting for something good, a decent bar or some mainstream food establishment. There are too many pupusa restaurants in the area. We need new ideas so all businesses can flourish instead of compete.

My friends and I are thrilled Irene's is coming back to the area. It makes the best Honduran food in the area, which is not the same as Salvadoran food though there are similarities. The difference is probably lost on some people but then a lot of these unacculturated folks probably think Thai and Chinese food are the same thing. Can't wait to get me some Tajaditas de Platano and Baleadas. Thanks Patch for making my day!
