El Molino

El Molino is a well stocked Mexican speciality market that's also rumoured to have some of the best tacos in town. Grab one before you browse the shelves piled high with a variety of rice, beans, chillies, and traditional seasonings imported from Mexico. Don't forget to grab a Mexican Coke while you're there. Mexican Coca-Cola is made with cane sugar rather than the American high fructose syrup version. Many say it's the best Coca-Cola you can find.
