Rumbas- besides being right in front of my apartment, they're delicious and cheap

What kind of restaurant would you love to see in Jersey City that isn't here already?
I am going to bring it to my Latin roots and say a Salvadoran restaurant. You cannot find any pupusa around here and if you do know of any, let me know because I'm missing out. 

Any other info you want to put?
