Posted for ZWT7 Central & South America. "Don’t expect cheese and tortillas. Instead, think poundcake. Think happy mornings, popping a few too many quesadillas in your mouth. In El Salvador they eat rich, buttery quesadillas in the morning with a big cup of coffee and I suggest you do the same. You’ll love the slight crunch of the sesame seeds in combination with the sweet/salty cake." From, globaltableadventure.com.
