El Florido Abarrotes y Carnes

What started as a small meat market in the Florido section of Tijuana has become a chain of grocery stores.  The format is a mix of warehouse store and meat market, with a service counter for meats.

They carry a full line of groceries, dairy, produce, and staple foods, along with disposable plates, cutlery, napkins and cups.  The store has a shop in the back for fresh cooked carnitas and tortillas made in the store.  One of the featured items they sell are "combos", a bundle of ingredients, tortillas, sodas, cups and plates to have a party.  There are shrimp combos, carne asada combos, pozole and menudo combos... it's one stop shopping for a fiesta!

Good selection of meats, if you don't see it on display, they will cut it for you.

Señorita Exterra could not resist the 3kg bag of Cheetos for $69 pesos! 




Caesar's Restaurante

"My empire for a salad." is what many of us imagine Julius Caesar might have said before the creation of Caesar's Salad.  Or at least it certainly was created in Italy, or maybe in Las Vegas.  The real story is very different.
