Rony's and Romero's - A Nice Little Store

I had to get bones for the girls this morning. I'll admit it, they are spoiled about their bones. They each get one a day. It's their big deal and true high point of each day.

I usually go to Mr. Meheehaw's (I think that's his name) in the Gabriel Hoare Marketplace to get their bones. We do this about every two weeks or so. I stop in, have him chop up ten pounds of bones so their a little less than fist sized, and then the girls carry the bones home in their packs. Then, when we get home we bake them and keep them in the fridge till needed.
Our New Favorite Store
Twyla had told me about the meat shop at Rony's (actually at Romero's), behind the Atlantic Bank. Rony's (or Romero's) is a relatively new store. More than that, they're also a totilla factory, making three different flavored tortillas - Habanero, Chipotle, and natural flour tortilla. They make chips too, in the same three flavors. They also make bread - not sure about the flavors there.

Rony's Tortilla Factory occupies the left side of the store (as you face it), and Romero's Meat and Vegetable Center occupies the right (kind of like the Twix factory, in a way). Romero's is a fruiteria (a fruit and vegetable store) with very nice looking stuff. But, wait. There's more! They also have a meat shop. in the back of the fruiteria, they have a shop that I like better than Frank's new place. They'll even grind your meat with a 50/50 mix of pork and beef - or however you want it. The bones I bought today were outstanding. The doggies give them two thumbs-up as well.

The only down-side is the meat shop doesn't open till 7:00AM - long after we've gone for walkies. So, the girl's will miss out on carrying bones home.

Stop in. I think you'll like the place.

Flying Carpets... er, Boats
Seen in our neighborhood was the unlikely sight of Bob Carpenter's motorless boat flying onto the hard.

Just a photo-op that was hard to pass up. It's now up on blocks being pressure-washed.

  1. We've been going to Rony's/Romero's for some time now and have always been pleased with their stuff. Just as an FYI, they also carry seafood -- usually in the freezer right by the counter -- and they also make whole wheat tortillas which are super.

  2. Hi Elizabeth,

    I had no idea about the seafood - a nice plus. Whole wheat tortillas, in fact flour ones in general, yummers!

    Cheers,

  3. It's been a couple of weeks and I'm just checking to see if the gremlins got you or you're just burn out or getting lazy. Gotta be one of them!

  4. Hi Julian,

    Lazy, maybe. I have one ready to go, except for a photo. With all this rain suddenly, after such a protracted dry spell, it's hard to venture out. Maybe today... Even though it's been raining all night so far.

    Cheers,
    Dave

  5. Hi Dave,

    We're booked for two weeks at Paradise Villas (unit 5B) in San Pedro -- from 12/21/13 to 1/4/14. Wow, 2014, who'd ever think I'd get this far!!!

    Anyhow, you need to take the Thunderbolt over one day and we can have lunch ( my treat) and "refreshments" in some reputable place, like BC's. (Oh, this invitation includes your better half, of course!!)

    Don't always tell you, but I really have enjoyed following your trials and triumph's over the years... thanks!

    Julian
