I moved into a new studio space a few months ago, but haven’t really explore the area much. I go there to work and then I usually just leave. I decided this week that I needed to do a little walking.
For lunch I walked down to a local El Salvadorian restaurant called the El Salvadoreno. As far as I know I’ve never had this kind of food and I was feeling a little adventurous. I can’t remember the name of what I ordered, but it was essentially a homemade corn tortilla stuffed with pork and cheese. It was delicious!! And shockingly it was super affordable. I’m talking cheaper than any of the fast food places I normally drive to when I think I’m starving and need something right now.
After getting my fill, I walked back towards my studio enjoying the weather and looking in the windows. I stopped at a pie shop called the Upper Crust. Oh my goodness!!! They have a whole assortment of pies and mini pies. You could even see the ladies in the back peeling apples and cutting them up. Seriously, I’m think I saw love going into these pies.
They are not super cheap, but I walked away with a mini bumbleberry pie (blueberry, blackberry, raspberry, and apple) and a cup of coffee for $9. I figure it all works itself out since my lunch only cost $2.50. Shamefully, I must admit, I ate the entire pie (hey, don’t judge me, it was mini). I have no regrets.
