This neighborhood supermercado offers everything from tortillas to Scrubbing Bubbles, but you don't want to miss the cute little taqueria tucked in back. Slide by the checkout counters and refrigerated case to the tiny, green-and-white-checkered dining area where families sit and enjoy authentic tacos, burritos and tortas cooked in an open-air kitchen. There are plenty of traditional fillings to choose from, including carnitas, barbacoa, lengua (tongue), chorizo, carne asada and jamon. Wash it all down with a cold horchata, Mexican fruit soda or house-made agua fresca (fruit water). Cerveza is not permitted.
