La Guadalupe Grocery is a small family-owned bodega for Mexican products on Main St. in Matawan, which I’ve passed by a million times. I recently stopped in because I saw the photo of Mexican dishes on the window, and checked it out.
La Guadalupe Grocery
118 Main St
Matawan, NJ 07747
You enter and go straight past the cashier to the back, where there are a few tables and a small kitchen. Today, by the kitchen, I saw the lady working pressing masa into tortillas, which of course is always a good sign in a Mexican restaurant.
I’ve been here once before to grab a menu and some weekend tamales, which were extremely tasty.
This evening, I went with a tlayuda with carne asada. Tlayudas are the massive “Mexican pizzas” from Oaxaca, and thís one was easily enough for two people for $13. Even the 3 salsas on the side were each unique and packed tons of flavor. Gladly will return again.
