The Top 10 Restaurants In San Salvador, El Salvador

Restaurant, Salvadorian, South American , $$


Stylish Citron in Zona Rosa is an excellent choice for fine dining. The restaurant itself is light and airy with contemporary art on the walls, while the seasonally changing menu is ingenious, taking classic Salvadoran ingredients and combining them with influences from further afield. The result is cleverly worked dishes such as venison chorizo with confit tomato and a fresh pesto made from epazote, a Central American herb with a distinctive flavor often likened to fennel. With buttery squash ravioli and stuffed mushrooms also on offer, vegetarians needn’t feel left out. Many of the ingredients, including the raspberries that appear beside creme brûlée on the dessert menu, are grown nearby.
