Breadbelly is one of my favorite bakeries to visit in San Francisco. It’s small and quaint, but in the past it was a great spot to enjoy an espresso and a small cafe vibe thanks to a recommendation from a fellow food friend.

Every restaurant is home to some form of comfort food. Lorena Menjivar’s grilled pupusas are the perfect remedy for a particularly stressful day. I regret that I only ordered two of them at the Menjivars’ family-run business Las Delicias Salvadoran Restaurant. One was stuffed with beans and melted cheese, and a second with cheese and an edible flower called loroco. Nelson, Menjivar’s husband and Las Delicias’ co-owner, says that the loroco plant is an important crop in El Salvador that’s grown in poorer regions of the country. “Recently, it’s gaining in popularity,” he says. “Being able to export more of that plant is helping the economy.”
