Where to buy refried black beans, London?

Does anyone know of specialty grocery stores in London selling canned Mexican-style refried black beans -- La Costeña, Goya or any other brands?

  1. I'm not entirely sure that I know what you mean by refried black beans - the refried beans that I have bought here are, I think, pinto beans. Larger supermarkets usually have tinned refried beans in the Mexican section. I've seen El Paso brand and some other brand as well (forget which). My two local supermarkets, Mile End Sainsbury's and Bethnal Green Tesco, both carry these, and they're not even particularly great stores, so you should probably be able to find them where you live as well.
    For other Mexican ingredients, this company is a great resource here in London (although I don't think they do refried beans):
    I hope that helps.

    1. i have ordered la costena refried black beans from . they also have a little shop near victoria, and deliver very good (by london standards) mexican meals on fridays.

        Thank you abgilliam. I've had no problem finding refried pinto beans, but couldn't find the refried black beans anywhere. I'll check out their shop one of these days.
