You can talk shit about the Mexicans all you want but they have enough sense not to fuck with a good thing.
When is the last time you saw one of these?
Real Coca Cola, made with cane sugar and in a full size glass bottle.
Fuck yeah baby.
I finally went into the neighborhood Groceria a couple of weeks ago after living here four years now, and I'm tellin' ya, these people have it goin' on down there!
Fucking thing has a little bakery and a butcher shop in it no less. It looks like a little hole in the wall kind of corner market but it's in this tiny little ancient strip mall and the store actually takes up the space of three little shops going into the "L" of a 90 degree building.
It's a cornerstone of the local neighborhood obviously and you will find all things Mexican in this place. The smell of fresh donuts assaults you when you walk in and you can hear the meat saw going through bones way in the back.
It's pretty damn obvious they don't get too many Gringo's in there either.
I can't speak Spanish for fuck all except for a few words but they speak English well enough that we do business just fine and they are actually pretty friendly once they figure out you aren't some Puerco Norte Americano.
They have all the damn spices I can't find anywhere else and at dirt fucking cheap prices too.
I paid 79 cents for two ounces of Cumin that would have cost me four bucks at Safeway.
Of course there is absolutely no way you will ever catch my wife in there but after living in San Jose all those years ago
I really miss my Mexican grocerias man.
She can keep going to Wally World because she won't let me do any of the grocery shopping but I have news for her. Not only have I found this outfit, earlier today I finally went into the local Cash and Carry. They do wholesale goods for restaurants and shit.
You can buy goods by the case and 50 pound bag if you want. I found a couple of items I want to try that come ina #10 can. That's kind of big so I want to make sure it's good so when I finally do open it, that it won't go to waste.
They also sell Bar and Kitchen goods and hardware items.
I'll be going back down there fairly soon because I want to get an Industrial Strength manual can opener instead of the absolute fucking garbage for sale everywhere else I go looking for one, if you can even find one at all.
I'm going to get two because two is one and one is none when it comes to that kind of thing in an emergency.
Who knows, maybe it will be Hecho en Mexico too.
