Quaint section of Detroit, approximately one block. At first we visited Glotria’s bakery then Lupita’s Taqueria. Bought too many items at the bakery but they were all delicious! Had tacos afterwards. Thoroughly enjoyed taco and El Tamarindo beverage. Must try if you are in town!!

I always stop in Mexican town when travelling to Detroit. We can easily get our favourite Mexican beverages and eats. We also gas up there. Safe neighbourhood, friendly staff at stores.
