'babe and I stopped in at La Colmena (Honey Bee) market in Mexican town the other day after picking up some of Evie's finest tamales for the holidays. We haven't been there for a while and were pleasantly surprised. Among the treats we don't see very often in the northern suburbs were frozen sugar cane, cactus leaves, frozen guavas, dried beans we don't see much and some nice buckets of lard. They had some guacamole out for sampling and it was the creamiest I've had in a while - very tasty. We'll be back soon.
Honey Bee is at 2443 Bagley - east of the freeway, which is torn up for construction there, but getting around it wasn't difficult (on Saturday afternoon)
