Superburrito

 

This mom and pop store front really is a small Mexican market, specializing in Hispanic foods.  Its not as big as large Spanish market chains but contains a variety of high prized items not found in normal american markets (Spanish or not).  The owners, Jose and Rosa Chavez, illegally immigrated to the United States in the late 80's as young teenagers and took part in the amnesty program offered at that time.  They have saved their money and began their market seeing a need for Hispanic food stuffs in their neighborhoods.  Since then, the Superburrito franchise has four stores in Babylon City.  Jose and Rosa Chavez are living the American dream and are active in immigration politics.  This has made them targets for certain hate groups.  Several violent attempts on them or robberies to their stores have been stop by passing superheroes.  Several pictures adorn the store of the supers and employees/the Chavezs.

 

Superburrito also has a Mexican deli of sorts after which it is named.  While it sell Mexican street corn, tacos, nachos, etc.  It is most famous for its Superburrito, a 1+ pound monster burrito with rice, beans, lettuce, salsa, corn, jalapenos, 3 cheeses, avocado, chorizo, and other meat.  A vegetarian version uses tofu and soy chorizo in place of the meat.

Habanero

 

This restaurant has two locations in the Barrios, though the original one is considered the best.  While one might think the food is solely about spice, that would be incorrect.  The restaurant actually has two menus.  One for gringos which consists mostly of traditional Mexican American dishes with a more authentic flavor and a special South of the Border menu.  The South of the Border menu has more unusual meats such as lengua (beef tongue), mondongo(tripe), and cabeza(head - cow head).  They have recently updated their Salsa Muerte to use Carolina Reapers as well as Habaneros and Jalapenos.  A certain regenerating superhero is known to eat at the establishment frequently using the Salsa Muerte liberally on food.  It seems the spicyness lasts long enough to be tasted by the superhero before the regeneration kicks in to bland out the taste.  Another super heroine also like to eat here but they just consider her insane.
