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?

  1. I'm surprised Superama or Wal-Mart or Costco doesn't have what you're looking for. If you're still having difficulty locating what you want, you may find the answer to the question by asking at your local panaderia the next time you stop there.

    1. 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.

      1. Near Interlomas.....there´s a store called El Almendro, on the corner acroos the street the catholic church with the v shaped yellow roof. What is it, Horacio, Homero? They carry Turín and lots of nuts, candy, .....and there´s a Los Tulipanes bakery on Prado Norte.

        1. 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.

          Euro Bakery on Niza No. 76 Col. Juárez C.P. 06600 México D.F.
          Tels. 5511 2499, 5511 7369, 5511 9477 Fax 5511 6765

          Also but in Polanco

          1. I found generic baking chocolate in Superama. Also, in La Europea I found some.
