    Dos Hermanos Market (as it's properly spelled - it means two brothers) has two locations, one in Westland that you're referring to, the other in Ypsi. www.doshermanosmarket.com

    I haven't been there and I don't know whether they have a restaurant in either market, but that's what I found with a quick web search.

      The Ypsi Dos Hermanos is a pretty good Mexican grocery/meat market (also with some Central American and Caribbean products). You can buy meat all ready to make tacos al pastor--good. On weekends they have a steam table going with tamales, carnitas, barbacoa, consoume. They will sell you the meatr strait or prep as tacos. All traditional (& greasy), inexpensive. I think there are some stools for eating there.

        The one in Ypsi stopped letting you eat inside, I think the Health Dept. had something to do with that. The one in Westland is attached to a full service Mexican restaurant with a pretty nice sized menu. Both places offer fresh made salsas, guacamole, ceviche, shrimp cocktail, and ( occasionally) cactus salad throughout the week.

      I use the butcher counter there all the time. I think they have one of the best Mexican Chorizo's in the area. They are also a good source for mexican spices and chili's if you don't want to drive all the way down to SW313.

      This is the same family that also owns a Taqueria in Wixom that I hit up all the time for lunch. La Casita Taqueria. Great Taco's at good prices.

        Thanks, I assume the chorizo is high in lymph nodes.

          They hand cut/grind the meat, season it themselves, stuff the sausages themselves and allow to cure in the store behind the meat counter. While the meat may of come from a CAFO I do not think they are using enough pork jowl to get it up to megamart "parts is parts" extruded and emulsified craptastic type of Chorizo you would be insinuating about. Charcuterie is not all done in factories yet. Some of us still demand good product done the old fashion way.

          I should also add....I love Pork Jowl.

            Their Chorizo is fantastic, both the regular and the green kind.

              Do they really have pork jowl? I haven't been able to find it other than wholesale. Have you seen or heard that they have cheeks?

                I have not seen Pork Jowl there but I have a few good contacts that we can talk about on Saturday.

                  Care to share? I am in the process of getting a curing fridge together and see Guanciale in my future :)
