Groceries, beer & wine in Malpais

Hi Everyone,

Can anyone tell me what I should expect from the grocery stores/ markets in the Malpais and Montezuma area? My extended family and I will be staying in the St Teresa area over Thanksgiving and are thinking of putting together a big spread with perhaps a large chunk of meat and some yummy wines. I'm concerned that our choices will be extremely limited. If the meat thing doesn't work out, which would be no huge deal, could someone please recommend the best place to buy fresh fish and veggies?

How about the best beer and wine (for at home use) selection in the area?

And finally, regarding preparing at-home meals, do you recommend we 'sanitize' our veg, or are we good to go with just a thorough rinsing?

I guess there is always the option of bringing in from San Jose (recommendations there?)... Thoughts?

Thanks so, so, so much!!

J

If you order beef don't forget the axe and crosscut saw. I'm not kidding at all. Even in the finer restaurants they tell you it's Argentine beef and it's absolutely horrible.
Their pork on the otherhand is excellent and of course you should be able to buy fish at the market.
Good luck and have fun.
Roger.
