Markets like Cuerna-Vaca Supermarket are a meeting place for Mexicans who want a taste of real home-cooked food minus the fluff. Egg dishes are available all day and the huevos rancheros will knock your socks off. Hulking platters of chicken enchiladas are served with mole (made with ubiquitous Dona Maria paste) or green salsa. The tender and crispy carnitas at the meat counter are prepared ahead of time so you can heat them at home for a lazy-night supper. This is one of those places that feels like Mexico, but you don't have to be a native to enjoy platter after platter of ridiculously enchanting Mexican soul food.
