Available Mexican/Latin American goodies in Calgary

Howdy Everyone,

After a recent move to Medicine Hat (from Edmonton), I have come to the conclusion that not many spices/general food goodies needed to accomplish Latin cooking are available down here in the Hat. I actually don't know if you can even go anywhere to buy a taco - good thing I make my own tortillas every couple of days. But I digress.

I'm pretty sure I'll be heading into Calgary this weekend and I'm looking for a place to pick up some stuff. Having never shopped in Calgary for cooking related items, I searched the boards and discovered Boca Loca; where I will surely make a stop (are they open Sunday? - please tell me yes). Are there other stores to visit? Or does Boca cover the spread quite well. I would also like to pick up a new molcajete and would appreciate any feedback about where I could find one. I realize I could order one online, but I don't like the idea of shipping so much weight and not seeing the basalt before hand. As well, I won't be going south for a least 6 months and don't feel like waiting any longer.

Thanks in advance.
