our story

Pupuseria Las Cabanas

was established by

Angela Leiva in 2004

Angela came to the United States as an immigrant from El Salvador to pursue the American dream and in hopes of starting her own business.

She always dreamt of opening a restaurant to bring an authentic style flavor of El Salvador to the Bay Area. Angela’s number one priority was that every plate served was made with lots of love and with quality ingredients. 

No matter how busy the restaurant was, hospitality was of the up most priority. Angela made sure to greet every customer walking through the door with a smile and a “good morning come on in” or “good afternoon, how are you?”

Being one of the longest running authentic Salvadorian restaurant in the area, has turned Pupuseria Las Cabañas into a Hayward staple. Unfortunately, on Nov 28, 2020.

Angela passed away at 61 years of age due to long time health conditions.
Pupuseria Las Cabanas is still family run and although she is no longer here in the physical form her dream is kept alive with every pupusa served!

Legacy of Flavor:
