Chavez Supermarket & Taqueria - San Jose, Blossom Hill

 We found out about this place one day when we went next door to Sports Authority. Then we noticed this supermarket and went inside to take a look. We didn't get anything then but took a note that there was a taqueria linked to the supermarket. Last weekend when we felt like having Mexican food off we went to that Chavez Supermarket & Taqueria.

We went there almost lunch time. When we walked in there was only about one table occupied. We were not sure whether we should went straight and sit ourselves. But it seemed like the menu was posted up so we stopped by to look at it. The guy behind the counter greeted us and we told him our orders. From there we walked down to the cashier to pay and order our drinks.

As we sat down, more patrons trickled in. We watched how each one of them ordered like us and we were wondering if anybody would get wrong order since they didn't go by names or numbers. It took about ten minutes for us to get our orders. I got a super quesadilla and hubby got a camarones a la diabla (spicy shrimp). For drinks we got horchata (cinnamon rice milk) and watermelon juice. Both were good and refreshing. Though hubby was rather disappointed that they didn't have tamarindo (tamarind juice).

My super quesadilla was huge. It resembled burrito instead of flat like pancake. It had chunk of roasted chicken, shredded lettuce, shopped tomatoes and juicy with some sort of sauce. Hubby's spicy shrimp was very nice. It's packed with enough heat but not too over powering. The shrimps were huge and very decently priced at $8.99. My super quesadilla was only $6.99. I was so hungry yet in the end I had to request help to finish the quesadilla.
