     Everybody has their favorite butcher, right?  . . .  Perhaps not our vegetarian friends and members, yet for those who do or want to have one: Your  VIP Club welcomes "La Lonja Carniceria", since 1953, Mesones #33, 152-0471, open 7:00 a.m. to 6 p.m. Home delivery! La Lonja is one of San Miguel's most popular meat markets. The establishment is immaculate, well stocked, and there's an able-bodied crew of sharp butchers! Name it in meat products? . . . La Lonja carries it! Check out the Steaks: T-bones, rib-eyes, fillets, New York; ground-beef, sausages, lamb-and-pork cuts; poultry: chicken ostrich and turkey, an array of seafood.
