    Default Dominican Butchers - not for the faint hearted

    I go to the butchers once a week to buy meat for the freezer inthe colmado. I used to go to Iberia or Jumbo but it is expensive and limited and often not fresh. For those of you who want good quality meat I recommend finding a good butcher. I can get lamb and goat at 85RD$ a pound. Pork at 55 RD$ and chicken at 38RD$. The meat is fabulous and so fresh it is almost killed in front of me. If the flies land on it it is good meat and you can have any cut you want - chops or ribs or legs of goat whatever. Here is a picture of outside the butchers. Please note the knife in the goats throat and the upside down pigs head. You can buy any part of the animal you want including tongue (i had a lovely cow tongue last week) and cow tail or kidneys.

    thank you but no. i pass a dominican carniceria every day on my way to work and the stench is pretty gross.
    additionally there are two cats inside, i guess they are used s pest control as i often see them play with dead cucarachas...
    now a german butcher is sosua - that's the real thing. expensive, yes, but best carniceria on a north coast!

    Go to the German butcher in Sosua, no flies and better cuts of meat.
    On the touristica on the left 1/4 mile out of town going towards Cabarete.

    Look for the sign that says "Bavaria".

    Thank you for the info. I doubt the German butcher will offer those products Matilda mentioned at those prices...unless I'm mistaken?

    I'm more interested in price rather than how long it's been since the meat was cut from the carcass and whether there's been a couple of flies on it...

    Great post, Matilda! I was laughing out loud at the remarks of wannabe Dominican ex-patriots! They will only buy meat from a "real" butcher, but never do they see what goes on in the back rooms of the butcher shop. I have held on to many a goat as it has had its throat slit, bled out, was skinned, and butchered. It doesn't get any better than that!

    Excellent point, LatinoRican...that's why they call them "butchers"
