Looking for El Yucateco Kutbil-Ik

Hi guys, does anyone know where I can find El Yucateco's Kutbil-Ik sauce in Northern Virginia? I can only find the red and green habanero sauce in my local grocery store. Anywhere near Herndon/Reston/Fairfax is fine--I'm also willing to drive a bit to get it.

      Jon, I picked some up from H Mart on 50--thank you for letting me know!

      Dennis, I will take a look at those places when I run out of this stash--thanks:)

    2. Have you tried the place near Tortilla Factory and Pollos Inka? If they didn't have it I'm guessing they could order.

      There at least used to be a Salvadoran market behind the McDonalds near K-Mart that I would also try. After that, the mercados around Lake Anne (one in the parking lot, one in the market space). There are others, but those are the first to come to mind.

        1. FWIW - I stopped at Compare Foods today and they had a number of products from El Yucateco. 4-5 varieties. IF they didn't have this one, I'm betting they'd order it.

          Nice store overall, a bit cleaner than Fresh World, or whatever it was called. I didn't have much time to really scout out prices, but the produce section seemed large, prices on a couple of items seemed very good, and the meat section looked good (and didn't smell - at least not yet).

          I find it funny how finely they break up the products according to ethnic background. I can understand Asian and Indian being separated from Hispanic, but the 2 or 3 aisles of Hispanic foods had me grinning. They probably carry more than 50 hot sauces, but they're spread out in 4 or 5 places at least! Salsas too.
