There’s a new restaurant that has taken over the former Pho Lotus space at 1523 S. Seneca. It’s called Delicias Salvadorenas and they just opened this weekend. I stopped by while they were getting set up. So with that said, let’s check it out.
1523 S. Seneca St., Wichita, KS 67213
Hours subject to change
Open Daily: 9am – 7pm
There was no menu available at Delicias Salvadorenas. They told me that it was still in the works. On their tent out front, had three pupusas listed:
- Chicharon con queso
- Frijol con queso
- Calabaza con queso
I went with one of each.
After I received my food, they started to list out their menu on some paperboard. It looked like there were many options but they didn’t finish it by the time I left.
With that said, the pupusas were really delicious. My favorite of the three was the chicharon con queso. I’ll say that one of the pupusas were a bit overcooked and not as easy to cut into. (Yes, I prefer to eat them with a fork rather than by hand) Otherwise, everything else was fantastic. They pupusas were probably thinner than some others around town, but the flavor was there. It came with a small side of curtido (Salvadoran cabbage slaw) that had a bit of bite to it. I’m never opposed to some heat, so enjoyed what it brought to the dish.
Overall, I liked what Delicias Salvadorenas brought to the table. They still have work to do, a.k.a. getting a menu and solidifying hours. They said the hours are 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. but that wasn’t for certain. There was a slight language barrier, but I think they said Saturday was their actual first day being open.
Anyway, give them a try and see what you think for yourself. They are now the third Salvadoran restaurant to open on south Seneca, so that stretch of road is quickly becoming a hotbed for pupusas.
Should I get a hold of their menu, I’ll be sure to add it here.
