I have been to Kylie’s Place a few times in the last couple of months.  My mother comes to have lunch with me and we like to explore various places in Elizabeth NJ.  Our most recent place has been Kylie’s Place Restaurant or Kylie’s Restaurant Place. All we know for sure is, this place is a restaurant, serving some really lovely food from El Salvador. Whether or not a Kylie exists, has yet to be confirmed.

The restaurant itself is not much to look at. It’s the type of place you would drive by a hundred times and not even notice it.  Then, after getting out of your car and noticing it, you might not even want to enter the place.  It’s tiny, there are plastic sheets of fake brick screwed to the walls, there is a tiny little steam counter and a small fridge holing some sodas.   There may be room for 6 tables.

The first time we came here there were two options for lunch. The first option being this green bean and mozarella cheese stuffed egg foo young type dish, sitting in a tomato sauce..  It was called, Ejotes Rellenos de Queso.   It was delicious.   My mother ordered this dish and was in love. For the next two weeks, everyday she would send me an email asking to go back there for lunch.

Finally, we went back and they had a similar dish but, with potatoes. Some fried egg foo young shell, stuffed with potatoes and cheese sitting in a tomato sauce.  It was served with plantains and rice and beans. The plate was 7.5 dollars and comes with a drink.

The first couple of times I had gone there, I ordered a stuffed cod fish dish which is delicious.  The next time or two I went, I ordered, the pupusas.  Now, if you are not familiar with what a pupusa is, I suggest you run out and find your nearest pupusaria.  These are wonderful little stuffed discs that are made with masa.  You essentially make these discs and then stuff cheese and pork or whatever you like into them. You then put them on a griddle and serve them with a slaw and a salsa. Similar to an arepa but, better. Very traditional in El Salvadoran Food.

Homemade salsa, homemade pickled peppers, homemade coleslaw.

I am telling you, you need these guys in your life.  You will be a better person for it!

Great little spot.  If you are in the area, give it shot, or find your own place that makes pupusas.
