I was recently introduced to Rosales Supermarket during Westside Wednesday, a monthly event that highlights different businesses on the westside of South Bend. As part of the festivities, Rosales had a taco truck outside of the supermarket on Western Avenue. As many of you know based on my previous posts, I’m always looking for a delicious taco, so I felt compelled to try them. The chicken tacos were really good – I may even say they are now my favorite tacos in South Bend.
What made me even more excited about Rosales Supermarket was the size of the grocery store as well as the selection of products. I love making Mexican food at home and have had some serious struggles finding certain ingredients in town. Last week, I returned to the grocery store to explore their products more in-depth and ended up taking home queso fresco, Oaxacan string cheese, red and brown mole paste, salsa verde, tostada shells and a big bag of freshly made pork and chicken tamales. My husband and I then proceeded to make a giant Mexican feast consisting of black bean tostadas with pickled red onions, tortilla soup and tamales. It was sooooo good. Our dog at the entire package of Oaxacan cheese while we weren’t looking – she also seemed to enjoy it.
There are two Rosales Supermarkets in town, which I’m assuming (perhaps incorrectly) are owned by the same people. I visited the larger location at 2812 W. Western Avenue. The other is located at 1518 S Michigan.
