It's like a Mexican food Disneyland!

I've always been a fan of Super Taqueria and was puzzled when the new taqueria opened up at Mercado Superior up the street (they are, after all owned by the same people). My first trip there some time ago was rather uneventful. It just seemed like a much larger place serving the same thing as Super only it was excrutiatingly slow.

Well, I guess it was a work in progress. I was putting on a mexican feast for my company party and needed provisions so I stopped into the market. What astounded me was the transformation that the Taqueria went through. Now, in addition to selling tacos, they have a variety of very large tamales, whole roasted chickens, a take out barbacoa and carnitas carving station (for lack of a better phrase), and enormous torilla station selling them by the pound, a huge selection of Mexican pastries, and even a agua fresca, fruit, and ice cream spot. It's completely unreal. When you consider that the market itself is about as comprehensive a mexican grocery as you'll find in the area, you can pretty much count on it for one stop Mexican shopping. I won't have to trek out to Miss Tortilla on 98 for some of these things any longer.
