El Dragon del Oro may not have an Internet presence, but it's there. But if you found Sambal Oelek at Mikasa, then that's a good choice, as it's in an easy to get to, congenial neighborhood.

I do have a card for Dragon. The owner is Winston Tseng, IIRC.
Yes; here it is:
The business is listed as Laplaz Light, S.A. De C.V.
"Dragon del Oro"
Alimentos y Regalos
Tinda de mayoreo y menudeo
(Address) Ing. Ernesto Pugibet No.17 (Mercado de San Juan), México, D.F.
Tel: 2488-3455 y 2475-1477 (Mexico City prefix is assumed. I think it's 55.)
Google street view, looking westerly, Mercado San Juan next, on right, TelMex Torre across the street:
This shows the shop in its earlier location, which has since expanded to take over the restaurant space on the corner of Plaza San Juan.
Mikasa, too, is worth a visit, but a true foodie paradise is the area of the city around Mercado San Juan. There's the first of several, rather long-winded posts on the blog, My Mexican Kitchen", which describes some of these places. http://mexkitchen.blogspot.com/...e-mexico-las-42.html
