While the dish seems simple, its goodness shouldn’t be taken for granted.

“It’s a labour-intensive dish, if you want to make it right. It takes time, and we use good quality ingredients,” says America Latina owner Mynor Garcia.

“In parts of Central America, soups are the weekend meal, either Saturday evening or Sunday after church. It helps you feel better when you’re a little under the weather,” he says.

“And a lot of people like to eat it when they’re hung over. Soup is the meal that everyone is happy with on Sunday.”

He’s talking about sopa de res — it’s delicious and it’s LTO during weekends.

The kitchen at America Latina prepares fresh home-made pupusas (a scrumptious Salvadoran national food that I have to eat at least once a month), tacos, Salvadoran and Guatemalan tamales, empanadas and delectable churros: some of the dishes are take-out; others munched by customers at a few tables nearby.

The soup, too. It’s worth planning for, including an early arrival on Saturday before it is sold out.
