Description

It’s like calling Pike Place Market a fruit stand. Oh, there’s a bakery all right—big colorful cases full of sugar cookies and pan mexicanos, sticky buns and the caramelly Caribbean bread pudding called budin. But the savories in this cheerful fluorescent-lit Mercado are what compel some of the many devotees, Salvadorean and otherwise, to make White Center a stop on their way to wherever. See, there’s the menu, much of it in Spanish, over the register: Number 10, featuring a deep-fried sweet plantain damming a purple lake of creamy refritos; crunchy bits of fried cassava root; charred nuggets of the fried pork known as chicharrón; one of the finest moist tamales in three counties; curtido, the brisk Salvadorean cabbage salad; and a pupusa—a Salvadorean stuffed tortilla—oozing flavor and delicious grease.
