Team Angels visited the newly opened Casa Gourmet and what a great addition to our community!
After the closing of Rizo's Supermarket on the Southside, we have been missing the imported items that we could normally find there - a little expensive, but available.
Now, in the same general neighborhood, the Casa Gourmet has just opened with a huge selection of products from all over the world including Oriental, Hindu, Arabic, American, Canadian, Italian and European. You can even request and order your specialty items.
The owner of Casa Gourmet, Gerardo Robles Lomeli, was the importer of the products previously sold at Rizo's and realized the importance of Puerto Vallarta's ex-pats and tourists to be able to find products "from home" that have not been available here.
You won't believe the great selection of products available in the comfortable air-conditioned space. We'll just name some of the items that don't seem to be available elsewhere here:
But, there's a lot more so you'll have to go see for yourself.
The store is well organized and the prices are clearly displayed.
Summer hours are Monday - Saturday, 9:00 am to 8:00 pm. Beginning in October, they will be open on Sundays, same hours.
At present, the only refrigerated section will be for drinks. Dairy items are planned to be added in the future as well as tables & chairs in the patio area for sandwiches, coffee and soft drinks.
The Grand Opening is planned for October. We'll keep you informed.
Stop in and say "hola" to the delightful Manager, Leonor Villegas, who always has a smile on her face.
Cash in dollars or pesos accepted as well as major credit cards.
