McKinnon style butcher in Jamaica Plain?

Hi there,
I used to live near Davis Square, and loved getting my meat goods at McKinnon's. I've moved to JP now. It seemed the equivalent is Meatland. I went there a few days ago in the afternoon, and was a tad confused. They didn't have minced pork, or even a large range of pork parts. Their range of chicken parts were limited (I didn't see any chicken tenders, and the fowl I bought was from the freezer). Their steaks looked interesting but I eat quite a bit of pork and chicken as well.

So first question, what's your favorite meat shop in or near JP? It needs to be public transport accessible for me unfortunately.

Secondly, was I missing something when I went into Meatland? Is there a trick to shopping there for the things I eat regularly? Pork mince, pork fillets, chicken tenders?

Thanks :)
