Dala Sanchez got tired of working two jobs, so she decided to go into business for herself and share her El Salvadoran heritage. Her Pupuseria El Rinconcito, which means “the corner pupuseria,” serves traditional pupusas. These corn cakes are filled with meat, cheese and/or beans.
She opened the restaurant at 1619 N. Wells St., about three weeks ago. It serves breakfast, lunch and dinner 11 a.m.-9 p.m. Sunday-Thursday and 11 a.m.-10 p.m. Friday and Saturday and takes cash only.
The pupusas are $1.50 each, and tacos are $2. Some of the dinners on the menu are yuca frita (fried yucca) and pollo en crema (chicken in cream), $7 each. Soups include sopa de pata (menudo), $8. Side orders include tostones (twice-fried plantains), $1.50. Desserts include flan for $3. And those picky eaters can order hamburgers, cheese sticks or macaroni and cheese off the children’s menu. For carry-out call 220-4429.
Farmers market going digital
Too busy or tired to make it on Saturdays to Fort Wayne’s Farmers Market? This summer you might be able to order local products online and pick them up Saturday morning or even Wednesday afternoon.
The market is 9 a.m.-1 p.m. Saturdays at Parkview Field during the winter. It will move back outdoors to Barr Street on May 20 and stay there until it heads back inside at Parkview Field the first week of October.
