Shorty’s Deli, Fairfax, VA

You can tell there’s a Latino influence at Shorty’s Deli from the outside – the handwritten sign saying desayuno Latino was enough to get me in the door.

The vast majority of the menu here reads like typical, strip-mall deli fare, with two exceptions: there are a lot of homemade soups, and some of the handwritten items point towards El Salvador.

I was told there would be a ten-minute wait for my two Pupusas Revueltas ($1.90 each), and that’s exactly what I wanted to hear because they were formed, then grilled, to order. Served with the standard twosome of curtido and mild salsa, these are the only pupusas I can think of in downtown Fairfax.
