That being said, here are a short list of things I found there that I haven't been able to find anywhere else:
- Bok Choy (previously only seen at Mercado de San Juan)
- Amazing Cheese selection
- Dr. Pepper Cherry soda (I know some of you are addicted!)
- Dry-Aged Meat, aged in-house
- Duck Breast ("Magret de Pato", a delicacy from the famous Maillard Duck, the same breed from which they make foie gras...I have since seen this in the freezer section at Chedraui too)
- Greek Yogurt (although it was Walnut/Caramel flavored)
- Hot Chocolate, Ghirardelli Brand
- Large selection of certified/stamped Kosher meats
- Raddichio (have never seen it here, not even at Costco)
- Rice Papers with which to make spring rolls and a lot of other Asian ingredients for sushi, etc.
- Rice Pasta (great for those with Celiac's Disease)
- Whole Wheat Flour and Gluten-Free Flours
- Wild Rice (previously only seen at specialty kosher stores in Polanco, although finally saw it at Superama, too)
Their prices, however, on everyday items are not ridiculously exhorbitant as you might expect, and they have a truly fantastic bakery. Their pan dulce, cakes, etc. are much better than what I've found at Chedraui or Superama. Additionally, their coffee shop serves some amazing "mezclas" of coffee and everytime you buy a cup of coffee you get two free little pan dulces. Not bad! I definitely think I'll try out one or two of their "restaurants" in the near future...they have a "Bar do Mar" and a place selling "spiked tapas" called "Pintxos".
Let me know what you think of City Market, and where is your favorite place to shop. I have been doing a lot of research on pricing, and Chedraui is, surprisingly, the cheapest I've found so far, although Costco beats them out on many shelf-stable items. Let me know what you guys think!
