Do you know of any Salvadoran restaurants in the Albuquerque/Santa Fe area?--A reader posed the question to me last week, and I was stumped. "I'm jonesing for a pupusa [fried pork-and-cheese-stuffed corn tortillas] and heard there is a restaurant here," he said, "[but] I just can't seem to find it anywhere." Former Alibi Food Editor Gwyn Doland says she's heard similar rumors, but can't put a trace on one either. So I'm turning to you, our voracious readers. Have you heard of a place that serves Salvadoran cuisine? The best advice will be rewarded with coupons good for a night on the town in Albuquerque, and I'll publish your findings right here in the paper. In the meantime, here's a tasty morsel to motivate your search.

There are a million Chinese food restaurants in Albuquerque. OK, maybe not quite a million, but definitely a multitude. What sets one apart from the herd? Ho Ho has a rep for being über cheap (you could buy the entire place for $10), Chow’s is in business with the white tablecloth treatment and China Star has the biggest pile of cold shrimp I’ve ever peeled into. This leaves a few categories open for the taking, such as best background cricket noises and best place to get stewed chicken feet.
