We are spicy food fiends and one of the best ways to get some heat is at one of the many Mexican restaurants around eastern Washington. Nuevo Amanecer, a Mexican-Salvadorean restaurant, in Pasco, Washington offers a whole table of freshly made salsas in a wide range of styles and heat. Meals are easy to order a with numbered photo menu board, affordable prices, and freshly made once you’ve placed your order. We’ve become quite enamored with Salvadorean Pupusas, which are hand formed masa dough balls filled with queso fresco, then flattened and grilled. (Pupusas have been described as thick quesadillas, but they are SO MUCH MORE!) Perhaps the most difficult realization is that your stomach is not going to be able to eat everything on the menu, let alone one meal, in a sitting. David and John’s families request pupusas, cabbage curtido, and salsa verde from Nuevo Amanecer whenever they are passing through the Tri-Cities.
