What makes this El Atlacatl different from all others? Nothing and everything. You'll find pupusas -- Salvadoran tortillas filled with beans, cheese, and pork -- alongside sweet tamales de elote and sopa de res or sopa de gallina. The Moreno family, which owns this location, directly or indirectly owns a half-dozen other Salvadoran eateries across South Florida. The unofficial empire sprouted as family members gradually left their homeland and immigrated to Florida, bringing this institution along with them.
