Ideal Market rounds out a robust sub-sector of Latin American groceries in Baton Rouge that also includes Texas-based chain La Morenita and several smaller markets and panaderias. Come check out Ideal Market where you will find irresistible and affordable finds, from fresh-made Mexican fruit drinks and homey plate lunches, to varied produce and plenty of Latin American staples.

Plate Lunches - The variety of items at Ideal Market’s sprawling hot food line is impressive, including barbecue ribs, achiote-tinged roast chicken, yellow rice, frijoles refritos (refried beans), kidney beans cooked in savory gravy, crispy pork in green sauce, sautéed nopales (cactus) and other comfort food dishes. Don’t miss the caldo de res, a marrow-infused traditional beef soup made with hunks of beef shank and oversized cuts of squash, corn, yucca and other vegetables.

Tres leches, flan and more - Ideal Markets are known for their in-house bakeries, which prepare all sorts of items, including wedding and birthday cakes, classic-style flan, plump semi-sweet conchas in three flavors and the deliciously soggy tres leches (three milk) cake. This traditional Mexican cake is prepared by perforating the top of sponge cake, then saturating it with a sauce made from three milks: evaporated, sweetened condensed and regular. It’s available at Ideal Market in several sizes, including individual slices.
