– Leonardo DiCaprio said it himself, Pupusas are better than tacos! I’m just stating some facts here. (Spanish music) – Hey, I’m Albert. – My name is Javier Moreno. – Hi, I’m Kimberly. – And my name is Curly. – And today, we’re gonna do a meal swap between tacos and pupusas. – And today, Javier’s gonna lose because pupusas are just
dominating the world. – For the record, I love both. But I’m just more familiar with tacos. I grew up with them. I think they’re versatile. – You can eat chicken, asada–
– So true. Mushrooms, even if you’re vegetarian, there’s a choice for you. – You can have them
anywhere, any place, anytime. – I agree. I love both, and I grew up with both but because I’m Salvadorian, I’m always gonna rep
the culture real hard. – Pupusas, what I love about
them is that just like tacos, you can do a lot of
different options with it, you know what I mean? – You can have 10, you can
have 20, you can have three. They’re always so good. I always say I’ve never
met a pupusa I didn’t like. – Never had a bad one in L.A. Ever.
– Me either. Well I mean, actually– All right, you ready to swap? – Ready. – Woo hoo! – Let’s do it. – You’re welcome. – First thing’s first, the way I like to eat it is with– well not with a fork obviously. But I like to tear mine open. – I shouldn’t have handed you a fork. – I was about to say– (mumbles) – Those are wrong. (giggles) – Let’s try this, I’ll take your advice. – Mm, these are really really good. – It’s so good. – I like the richness of the pupusa and the cheese inside has
different textures than this. – Latinos like to eat with their hands. And a lot of our foods are
with are hands, you know? – I don’t know why I assumed I was eating with a fork and knife but it tastes much better getting your hands greasy on it, you know? This is a really good pupusa. I mean, I really love (speaks in Spanish). – I have no idea how to make
these, but I would eat them. I would make them if I could. – Have you ever made
tortillas (speaks in Spanish)? – Mm-hmm. – They’re not that bad. I was always talk about that
the pupusas and tortillas are kind of passed down by
the women in our family. My (speaks in Spanish) taught me how to flatten out the masa. And so I feel like when you’re
serving people our food, whether it’s a taco or a pupusa, it’s generations worth
of tradition and culture. – Yeah, it’s part of the culture, yeah. I 100% agree. – Tacos are just– If you make it right, the taco could be so
insanely good, you know? – And it’s so simple.
– It’s easy. – When I don’t have anything in my house, I always have tortillas,
and I always have meat, so I’m gonna be making some
tacos and put some salsa on it. – No for sure. – Mexican food is bomb. – I’m still OG tacos, but I would definitely
incorporate pupusas more. And I would love someone to
teach me how to make them so I can do it myself. – I feel like it just
depends on what’s there. Some days I wanna wear shorts, and some days I wanna wear pants. It doesn’t mean that any one of them is less than the other, you know? – I love pupusas for breakfast. Maybe after a party, or a hangover. I like eating tacos. That’s the best thing. – Pupusas for me is more like dinner. My mom will work on it all day. Sitting down waiting for the pupusa to be fresh on your plate, ugh. And then tacos for me are more
so like anytime I’m hungry. My friends are like, “Yo you
wanna go get some tacos?” Sure. You know? It’s just easy, it my go-to snack. – Yeah. I think I eat tacos everyday.
– Yeah. – I don’t even know if I was allowed to eat the second taco but here we are. And then I’m gonna kill that
pupusa underneath it too. – And real talk, I’m not even hungry. I’m just eating cause it tastes so good. (Spanish music) Follow, like.
