Best Authentic Mexican Grocery Store (again)

>>>Chowpatty: What neighborhood do you live in? There is a Mexican/Latino market on pretty much every corner in L.A. What is instant Combate?<<<

I live in West Hollywood and am new to Southern California from San Francisco. No doubt there's a Mexican market on every corner in other areas, but not here.

Combate is Mexico's own grown and produced strong coffee. It has an unforgettably bright yellow and red label. The killer instant is used in hot milk with bolillos for breakfast. (In Guanajuato, at least.)

Thank you mc michael -- but did I once hear that there's a famous big authentic Mexican market somewhere on or near Sunset in Echo Park?

(I don't know that I'm willing to go all the way to East LA to hunt, but I will if I absolutely have to.)

Want to stay up to date with this post?
