Best High End Butchers in Mexico City DF

SocksManly | Dec 2, 2008 05:05 PM

I just realized that when I visit Mexico City for a month very soon, I'll be able to visit some butchers and get some quality cuts of meat there for probably drastically cheaper than I can at home (in Toronto, Canada). It would be nice to surprise my family there with some nice home cooked meals that they're not used to.

I'd probably be looking for things like prime steaks, rib roasts, beef ribs, veal shanks, free range chickens, maybe even some ducks...

I went to a few butchers today around here, I saw some really amazing looking well marbled prime strip steaks, selling for $19.99/lb. Rib steaks (prime) for $16.99/lb, and then normal but still quality strips etc for $9.99/lb.

Curious what the prices will be like there too, if anyone knows the lowdown.

Oh, good to mention.. We'll be staying in Colonia Moctezuma Segundo Seccion, basically right at Benito Juarez Airport.
