That's why the menu here is split pretty much down the middle between the foods of her Central American homeland and local favorites. There is even an all-inclusive section named Salvatex Combinations that includes fusion platters such as carne de res asada Salvatex (tender grilled steak with chimichurri, an enchilada and black beans with rice).
