So here are this week's top three posts, as endorsed by you via the recommend feature, or as indicated by the level of talk going on in the comments...

Recession Obsession: The Pupusa
"Pupusas are less than $2 each. Thanks to a sizable-enough local El Salvadorean population, you can find them cooked up all around Los Angeles. The pupusa is small enough that a second is demanded. Two and an icey glass of horchata runs about $5-$6. That’s why El Salvador’s thick corn tortilla-stuffed delight is LAist’s latest Recession Obsession."

You've Got Jury Duty Downtown, Where do you Eat?
Well, where do you? How about trading in that sad Subway sandwich for a bite at: Homegirl Cafe, Pete's Cafe and Bar, Phillipe's Original Restaurant, D-Town Burger on 6th, the new Magnolia on 9th, Mendocino Farms, spots in Little Tokyo, or Ciudad. And if your summons is in the mail, hold on, because three more spots are poised to open: Mother Road, Crown Cafe and Infusion Cafe. Civic responsibility has never been so delicious!
The Return of the Guinness Cupcake
What better way to celebrate a holiday than through its nation of origin's food and drink, right? Of course, you can always cut to the chase(r) and put the drink right in the food. Maybe that's why we're such fans of the Guinness cupcake. (And well-made Irish fare like corned beef and cabbage. We're not haters!)
