This Colombian-run store specialises in imported foods from across South America, including Colombia (natch), Chile, Brazil, Peru and many more. Start out at the fruit and veg aisle, where you'll find plantains and small, yellow Andean potatoes, then move on to the range of chilled items, such as queso fresco and dulce de leche. Chicken- and beef-stuffed breads and pastries, tortilla, tacos and various other frozen foods make for quick and easy meals, while the selection of fruit purées (made from mora, mango, aҫai and other tropical fruits) would be a delicious addition to any cocktail. While you're at it, pick up a bag of toasted corn nuts for a salty snack, or get some choclo (Peruvian corn), Andean corn, dried carioca or black beans to add depth to soups and stews. Tempted? Find it next to the Brazilian Consulate on Sakura-dori, near Gotanda Station.
