I like La Despensa de Don Juan the best but Despensa Familiar is smaller and prices are better. Super Selectos has good weekly deals to watch out for and have some products the others might not have. Inside La Despensa de Don Juan you will find the same typical setup. Registers at the front, meat counter, bakery counter, etc.
I typically buy the cheaper brands to avoid overpaying but anyway, every week I am going to post my grocery list and the price for each product just so everyone can get an idea and see what it is like here.
PLEASE KEEP IN MIND IN EL SALVADOR ALL PRICES INCLUDE IVA (TAXES) SO IF IT SAYS 1.00, THAT IS THE FINAL COST! TAX IS ALREADY FIGURED INTO THE PRICE ALWAYS.
