I have heard for some time about Su Carne, which is a meat market in David.
Tuesday I decided to see if I could find it. It is run by Jorge Martinez.
I had met Jorge, when I had gone to see Robert Watson for my back injury. We both commiserated about Robert’s untimely death and what a great loss it was.
Su Carne is easy to find if you know where it is. However, in David, with typical directions, you may never find it. Natalie and I would not have found it if if we had not called while driving there.
HERE is a Google Map.
I didn’t buy anything on this visit, but I did see the meat being processed. He was filling a large order of hamburger patties to be delivered to one of the local restaurants. He carries two types of ground meat. 80-20 for hamburgers and 90-10 when you want less fat.
They carry beef and pork ribs. You can order them without the membrane. I saw a very nice prime rib that had been aged for 14 days.
Now that I know where it is, I will be giving it a try. With all of the recommendations I have had, it has to be good.
Here is the contact information for Jorge Martinez. Contact him if you have a special order to fill and tell him you heard of Su Carne on Chiriquí Chatter.
