I think Saturday mornings at the HEB supermarket in Gulfgate mall at the intersection of 610 and 45S is a culinary mini vacation. My most recent trip, I spotted someone selling freshly made kettle corn out front. Inside, you are practically in a Mexican mercado, complete with a refresqueria stand selling aguas frescas, a perfect match to the mounting Houston heat. And how many refresquerias let you pay by credit card?
I got a glass of this cucumber pineapple concoction. It's definitely made from fresh pineapple although the sugar obliterated whatever cucumber flavor was in there. Were I hungrier, the flame broiled chicken looked like a more interesting alternative to the ubiquitous supermarket rotisseried bird.
