Northgate proves that you can be a chain and still be an excellent grocery store. Originally founded originally in Anaheim in 1980, Northgate has since expanded to more than 42 locations across Southern California, and become the region’s preeminent Mexican supermarket. While each location has different amenities (guacamole bars, burrito stations, ceviche stalls), one thing you can count on is quality in every aisle you wander down. Whether you’re looking for fresh-baked bolillo or costillas adobadas by the pound, Northgate sets the bar extremely high, and few supermarkets can touch it.
