    Default New Market

    They just opened the 3rd LATINO market in my area. A place called SABOR

    http://www.saborlatinosupermarkets.com/Groceries.html

    Complete with bakery (panaderia) Tortillaria, and real butchers.

    If you have never tasted fresh tortillas right off the machine you've never
    had a tortilla.

    I wonder since this is the 3rd market if there's a population shift
    happening in Southern California?

    One way I diifferentiate among those around here is by how much we
    like their marinade for carne asada. And their house pico de
    gallo. -aem

    @ Vallarta Market their Pico De Gallo & Guacamole & marinated boneless
    skinless chicken legs (leg & thigh) are to die for. Their tortillas still
    hot in the bag coming off the machine are what I remember from my mis-spent
    youth in Mexico.

    Here in the central San Gabriel Valley, I receive flyers from:
    Northgate Market, Superior Market, Baja King Market, Price Rite Market
    and El Super. I buy my tortillas (flour and/or yellow corn) from the
    La Tolteca tortilleria at..$.95/dozen for flour, and $.45/dozen for 6
    inch corn. I bought a bag of the 3 inch tortillas...3 dozen for $.75.

    We have three Hispanic markets in my Southern Oregon town. All have
    great tortillas and great meat for fajitas.

    I have 6 of them within 4 miles and they're only good for
    chicharrones.

    None of them speak English and nothing in the case compels me to speak
    Spinich.

    Fresh tomatoes, fresh chilies, of course fresh onions, and little or
    no cilantro (certainly no cilantro STEMS) is all it takes for great
    pico de gallo.

    Of course everyone differs on how much pecker they want in their
    mouths. I couldn't resist the pun.

    At the Mexican market here, the checker will be speaking Spanish
    mile-a-minute with the previous customer. When I get to the head of
    line, she switches to English with zero hesitation, before I say a
    word. Maybe because I am whiter than Conan O'Brien.

    Those years I spent in German class in high school were a complete
    waste. I wish now I had chosen Spanish instead. It seems
    completely obvious; I don't know what I was thinking back then.

    Mostly the Supermarcado sells the same stuff you can get anywhere,
    but their meat is often cheaper and their produce is a *lot*
    cheaper.

    Spinach is an anti-food that nobody should eat.

    The checker at the Mexican markets always speaks well English. But
    nobody else in the store will. My boss just got rid of the cleaning
    crew for not speakie [sic] english.

    My mileage varies. If I see something at one of the outfits I WILL
    get it. Like the 10.5lb bag of "Norteno Fajita" meat last month which
    was really bottom sirlion flap meat advertised for $3/lb. It was not
    the Round Tip they first tried to sell me and I let them know.

    Me too. In my case it's not that my complexion is all that pale but
    that I am almost as hairy as wolf man. It makes it easy to guess that
    I'll except English. I can read Spanish okay and I know the numbers so
    they could tell me the total in Spanish, but chatting with me isn't
    going to work.

    I was thinking that I planned to go into aerospace in my career and that
    German would be better for it. I did start in aerospace for the first
    decade of my career. it was worth it.

    You've been conspiring with my wife? ;^)

    Many years ago one of my daughters requested some Mexican food for her
    birthday.

    I zipped over to Tres Sierras (Mexican Market) for the goods I needed.

    The female clerk looked at the purchases the at le then at the purchases
    then at me again and finally said " Buenos Tardes" (Good Afternoon in
    Spanish) I answered her in Spanish & we continued in Spanish.

    I guess she figured no Gringo could possibly be purchasing that combination
    of food.
