El Pulgarcito de America
Hally Chirinos grew up working the register at her parents’ restaurant El Pulgarcito, where her Salvadoran and Honduran heritage combined to keep locals coming back week after week. Customers seek Central American staples and a familiar taste of home. Her parents, Henry and Delmi Chirinos, created a menu that offers Honduran, Salvadoran, and Mexican favorites.
