The Taqueria at Chavez Supermarket

Clockwise from front: Barbacoa Sope, Lengua Taco, and Shrimp Ceviche Tostada

Chavez is a chain of Mexican supermarkets across the Bay Area, complete with taquerias attached. So we stopped by to load up on a few items, including not just that sope in the foreground, but a taco and tostada as well.

The sope was the best one in my opinion. The frijoles smeared on top of the thick masa base was nice and rich, making everything all of that stuff on top go down easily. The lengua here was nice and tender for that taco too. But I was let down by the tostada, whose ceviche topping just wasn't very exciting.

Oh well. I'm definitely coming back though, especially given the selection of soups available on the menu...and they are open for breakfast!
