Supermercado Mexico

17420 SE Division St., 477-5947; 970 SE Oak St., Hillsboro, 352-5525. Lunch and dinner daily.

The two Supermercados Mexico bookending Portland—one in Gresham, one in Hillsboro—offer a vision of grocery shopping that's a lot like a child's birthday party. There's impossibly sunny music, a wealth of piñatas and balloons, and a taco feed with a kickass salsa bar. The Gresham location even has a little frutas stand in the back serving fresh fruits in a cup doused in lime and chili. But really, you're here for tacos and guisados and pollo al carbon by the pound if need be, followed by a delicious tres leches cake straight out of the deli case.
