    The largest population of South Americans in the boroughs is in Corona Queens. With all those cocinas for blocks and blocks. There has to be a decent grocery store around there.

      Sunset Park has quite a few grocery stores. Don Paco Lopez at 4th Ave. and 47th St was recommended to me. I did some exploring and found a few: Guerrero Food Center, 23rd and 5th. Pueblo Min-Market on 39th St & 5th. My trip up 5th Avenue ended there.

        Here in the forgotten borough that would be Port Richmond Ave... Montealban is the best I guess.
