First off, let me say that I shop at the store located off of 43rd Street in National City. It’s hard to do this place justice without just going there. This is an awesome store! I found it when I was on a search for fresh Chilauca Chili’s. They ALWAYS have them in stock. I love to add these in strips to my homemade chili, especially when they are ripe. They are hard to find ripened, even here, but I get them here and am happy to find any at all.
The butcher shop and deli areas are massive and they wrap around the whole shop. This is a big store, as big as a Super Ralphs, if that helps you scale it. They have so many good things here. Their prepared meats, especially the carnitas, are incredible and relatively cheap compared to many places. Fresh salsas, soups and tons of prepared dishes are available to eat there or take home.
They have a tortilla station and are more than happy to let you have a bag of freshly cooked ones if you ask. They have some unusual versions as well. Pretty cool.
If you like to cook Mexican styled cuisine, you owe yourself a visit. It’s one of our favorite places to shop in all San Diego.
