Hartford Business: Del Norte Grocer
When we were going into the Pan De Oro chip factory a couple weeks ago, we noticed what appeared to be a Mexican Grocer at the end of the industrial park Pan De Oro is located in. Being in an industrial park, we first guessed it was a restaurant supply type store, selling products in bulk. After all, an industrial park next to train tracks didn't seem like the place where one would find a small grocer.
When we did go to purchase a jar of mole sauce the owner told us that if we wanted some authentic mole sauce we should try the other kind located in the cooler that contained other sauces and seasoned pork. We took him up on the advice, and when we later prepared the mole sauce with a chicken leg quarter and brown rice, we were glad we had listened.
Pan De Oro for some great local chips.
