Mount Pleasant Street Culture
It seemed like I had moved out of Mount Pleasant during a period when another layer of gentrification was spread over the neighborhood. It has become a bit different place over the past year. But some things don't change so fast, like its Latino and especially Salvadorian culture. My friend Brandon wanted to know if I knew an inexpensive Salvadorian eatery up in Mount Pleasant. I took him to El Polo Sabroso on Mount Pleasant Street. They have the best chicken sandwiches and rotisserie chicken in DC. The summer might be the best time to eat in Mount Pleasant because after lunch you can get a shaved ice. They shave the ice off a giant block in the center of the cart. The flavoring is mixed with condensed milk to make it even sweeter.
