The restaurant in downtown Overland Park starts the soup and sandwich hybrid with a French roll that is piled with chicken, lettuce, tomato, beets, cucumber, and mayo. Ask for it saucy with a ladle of the broth that the hand-pulled chicken comes smothered in. For an additional $1.50, you can get a side of escabeche - a bowl of punchy pickled cauliflower, onions, carrots and jalapenos.
There's also an array of pupusas and daily dinner specials, such as carne asada, as Charles Ferruzza discovered in his review last December. El Salvadoreno is open from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. Sunday through Thursday and from 9 a.m. to 10 p.m. Friday and Saturday.
