Mexican Retail Therapy - London, England
Casa Mexico is the kind of dangerous place where you pop in for some refritos and come out with a cooking pot, a chimnea and a set of wine glasses. The store specialises in hard to source Mexican groceries but that's just the tip of the pinata. It stocks treasures for the home, for the garden, clothes, toys and a range of Day of the Dead inspired craftwork. When I was last there, word had spread amongst the local bar owners about the quality of the Casa Mexico Lemon Squeezer prompting a rush.
Your food purchases come with great cooking advice to help you make the most out of the ingredients, cook that special dish that you tasted on holiday or just turn your kitchen a little bit more Mexican.
- Casa Mexico is at 1 Winkley Street just off of the Old Bethnal Green Road. It does have an online store at www.casamexico.co.uk but, if you can, it is worth a visit to explore the shop.
