Amongst her suggestions is the pupusa, a thick tortilla full of cheese, beans or combined.

Para Yanet Rosales, es un placer compartir la comida que es parte de su cultura Salvadoreña. La inmigrante empezó un pequeño negocio de comida dentro de la Plaza Pica Pica en 910 SE Navy Drive, San Antonio.
“Creo que más que todo la pupusa es lo típico platillo de nosotros, que la pupusa se de a conocer, que se haga famosa,” cube Rosales.
Con esfuerzo, a crecido su clientela y ha hecho que más personas se familiaricen con la comida de su país. Su meta es crecer su negocio y abrir un restaurante Salvadoreño.
“Tú quieres llegar a Estados Unidos, vienes por el sueño americano, enfócate a lo que vienes, si lo vas a lograr,” cube Rosales.
