Best Place for Gringos to Practice Spanish and/or Buy Mexican Groceries 

Mi Pueblo Taqueria and Supermarket

Clevelanders are likely familiar with Mi Pueblo's east- and west-side eateries, but the latter also features a small grocery store that is essential for Mexican-food aficionados and lovers of all things south-of-the-border.

The stuff they sell fresh from the butcher counter is the real deal — it bleeds beautiful orange fat and lets off a spicy fragrance that'll light up the senses. You'll also find produce, cheeses, tortillas, candy, sauces, imported beer, Mexican music, piñatas, Spanish magazines and soccer jerseys.
