Zaragoza Grocery review image

Zaragoza Grocery

A trip to Zaragoza should be motivated by three factors. First, this Mexican grocery and deli serves hearty corn tortilla tacos, and burritos and quesadillas that will hold you over for hours. Second, it’s where you can pick up tamarind-coated sour straws, Jarritos, and plenty of other Mexican snacks. And finally, there’s a friendly orange-and-black bodega cat who lives here and wants to be pet. We see no reason why you shouldn’t enjoy all three factors at once.

The Garret

There are two Garrets in the city, and the one on the west side is a speakeasy above a Five Guys. It’s a cool space, but expect a crowd and top-40.
