Nachos, empanadas, mini tacos, burrito bowl, sweet potato fries… Does this sound like a dream? It’s not! This, and more, is what you can order at the Mexican Supermercado. Personally, I was mostly familiar with this place because I danced there ’till early in the morning when I was young (sob).
But really, it has become a wonderful place to eat. Obviously, Supermercado has been around for a while, but in my opinion it’s worth it to put it in the spotlight again. Both the mega cheerful interior and the great service brings you in a good mood. In addition, there is enough comfort food supplemented with delicious drinks. So are you planning an evening with your amigos? Vamos!
