Compare Foods -- Big Latino Grocery Store


Compare Foods is an small chain of Latino-owned, low-cost grocery stores, stretching from Massachusetts to North Carolina.  The Durham store is in the old Avondale shopping center just north of I-85 (where Winn-Dixie used to be and next to where Big Lots still is, and not far from where, in a pleasant surprise, Wachovia still is.)

For better, funner details on Compare Foods, click for reviews by other local food people/bloggers:

Joe V: ("...in 3-packs.  It really seems like they should come as some multiple of 2.")

Jenny P: ("It's fantastic... I almost mean that in the supernatural sense.")

Rodney D: ("...it makes me very happy to know I'm only a few miles from a store where I can buy a whole cow's head.")

If you know of any other reviews, please let me know and I'll link to them.

Also, if you can tell me a better way to have formatted/punctuated/written the above list of links ("[click here] [example quote]", please advise.  I hate my approach.

Thanks for posting that pic of the cabeza de res (or as I described it to someone at work, the best new way to frighten vegans). I gave a brief shoutout to Compare the other day as well: http://www.mondomundo.net/archives/007382.php

My brother John -- he was a pig. Or perhaps a cow. Bring me his head!

i've been debating with myself whether to start a new blogging category - The Compare Foods Find of the Week.

Now i know i don't have to.

Did you want any miembre de res to go with that cabeza?

This is the first time that I saw a Beef head on a grocery. I thought those heads can be found on wet markets. Thank you for sharing your post. I love it.
