Where to buy chocolate for baking in Mexico City?
Hi, I've recently moved to Mexico City, and cannot find baking chocolate in stores.
I'm just looking for common baking chocolate.
Does anyone know where to buy chocolate for baking, preferably near Interlomas?
For superior chocolate and to browse all things relating to food preparation I enjoy Belle Cuisine and Euro Bakery, which is very serious and great fun for all else.

Chhocolate "Turin" is a not-bad brand of baking chocolate. In Morelia, I know that Wal-Mart carries it. I had to ask an employee to show me where it's located. Now I've seen it in Mega Comercial and other major supermarkets. You should have no trouble locating it in the stores suggested above, but be prepared to ask for it.
By the way, the designation "amargo" isn't "bitter" in this instance, but similar to semisweet chocolate in the U.S. "Semi amargo" is pretty mellow-sweet.
