This fresh meat market is amazing. You can buy your meat and take home to cook or you can have it prepared for you and eat there. The lamb was amazing. We also had the sausage and pork. Everything was really good.

I have no idea, we just showed up. Maybe just go there and book up If you want them. There is a new place that does the same thing that’s doing it better. Forgot the name but maybe ask Mr Google.

Not really, but Mzoli can organize a special vegetarian/fish for her. All you have to do is to contact them few hours before you go there.
