We are lucky here, we have three Superama stores, one of them is very new, it just opened about a year ago. That’s quite a few of them for a small city like Cuernavaca. Since Walmex owns Superama, one of them is adjacent to Sam’s Club here.
The other two Superama stores are located in or near, upscale colonias, so they do carry many more or less luxury food items. Many US foods, great produce, a nice panaderia, coffee shop, meats, some hard to find frozen items including some very good frozen dinners, and frozen eggs. We like to keep 3 or 4 boxes of the frozen eggs in the freezer to save a trip to the local abborote if we run out of eggs in the morning. They are liquefied so the only way you can cook them is in scrambled form, they are called egg substitutes because they have been modified so they are low in cholesterol. They taste just like the eggs the chicken produced. Each box is the equivalent of four eggs.
There are many choices here for Supermarkets, Bodega, Gigante, Commercial Mexicana, Mega, etc. Costco owns Mega, so one of them is adjacent to Costco. We used to have a Carrefour, but since they left Mexico, that store is now under Mexican ownership, I can’t remember the name of it right now, but it seems to have all the same items that Carrefour used to have. When we lived close to it, it was my favorite store. No Soriana, but who needs one?
Most of these stores have a Coffee shop and/or restaurant. The Mega next to Costco has a restaurant upstairs, and a coffee shop, dry cleaners, etc. downstairs near the covered parking area.
We do have to rough it here though. In all those stores, we have never been able to find any Boston baked beans, or dry onion soup mix. We have to stock up on them at Super Lake when we visit Ajijij.
