Kosher meat

  • e

A friend is looking for a good kosher butcher in/about Wellesley area. Will call Dewar's but appreciate any suggestions.

  1. There's a kosher meat market in Newton on Comm. Ave a block up from Center St. I've never shopped there, so I can't tell you anything about them.

      This is Gordon & Alperin. It's an old fashioned butcher; you go in, tell him what you want and he prepares it. There are no wrapped chicken breasts sitting in a display. I usually go to the Butcherie for my meat, but went here last week for a change of pace. The chicken was very tasty. The 1/2lb. roast turkey was good as well. I also got a package of frozen homemade hamburgers from the freezer (where they also have frozen prepared food such as breaded chicken cutlets, matzah ball soup, tzimis, etc).

      Don't hold me to this, but I think the prices are a little higher here than at the Butcherie.

      For reference:
      Gordon & Alperin, Inc
      552 Commonwealth Ave
      Newton, MA
      (617) 332-4170

        I shop at Handler Brothers on Comm. Ave. in Newton. They have the best selection of meats and will accomodate any order I may have. You won't go wrong here, and the prices are slightly higher than the Butcherie in Brookline, but the quality is much better. You get what you pay for.

      2. There's one on Concord St in Framingham, but I can't recall the name. Sorry.

          This is Hurwitz. I've never been but I've heard it's a very good butcher.

          Hurwitz Kosher Meat Market
          326 Concord St
          Framingham, MA
          (508) 875-0481

        2. the Empire Kosher website links to this online store to order their prodcuts:

          I see that has meats too. This could be a lazy alternative.

          If anyone does order from this site, please let me know how it turns out. I've never ordered perishables online before.

          Also, the Star Market at 448 Washington Street is listed as a distribution point of Empire products, so they may have chicken and turkey. I'd call first, though.
