At the front it’s snack food and canned goods and a small produce case. Unless you look beyond the last aisle, you might not even see the cafe in back. And that would be a shame. The sopes here are wide and thin, like little crispy masa pizzas on which to heap lengua (beef tongue) or buche (beef sweetbreads). Spring for a bit more to double the tortilla on your tacos, because the two-ply seems better equipped to handle the generous serving of meat, whether it's the chili-pineapple-inflected pork or the sultry chipotle-fired shredded chicken. On weekends you’ll find loads of people hunching over wide bowls of menudo.
Hours: 9 a.m.-8 p.m. Mon.-Sat., until 5 p.m. on Sun.
