The Butcher Shop, Dorchester

I have been a member for some time, but usually just as a lurker.
A turn of events has now meant that I have living part-time in Boston and part-time in Cincinnati, due to my good friend's job.
Since coming to Boston I have been looking for a good butcher. As many of you can attest. this is not an easy feat.
Today, however, I saw a post for The Butcher Shop, in Dorchester, on Adams, and decided to give them a try.
All I can say is GO, GO GO!
Great service, great meat, great price.
I was on the hunt for pork tenderloin for an asian pork tenderloin recipe -
We arrived at the store just as they were closing, but the butcher could not have been nicer. There were none in the case, but the butcher (Mike) cut two for us. They were beautiful.
He was very personable and could not do enough for us.
We also picked up some stew meat for wine braised beef for tomorrow's dinner.
I will post later as to how these dishes turned out with the meat we purchased here, but we will be returning to this shop for more.
