Kosher/Halal Butchers? (center city/NW philly)
Hello All -
Any advice on where to get meat - specifically Lamb shoulder - that's either kosher or halal?
Quality and price both important. Preferably, either in center city or in the germantown-to-chestnut hill area.
Trader Joe's has kosher turkey breast, ground turkey, chicken, and steaks. However, I don't believe they kosher lamb. I found this butcher that isn't too far from center city.

Figured I'd write in, in case anyone searches this later.
I went to the place at 23rd and south.
Not totally impressed. The place just didn't seem as clean as I'd have liked. Strong smell of ammonia, but just looked like that was covering over some less-than-idea habits. This is more about the floor and the general area than the part that actually had the meat, but still not a good sign.
The meat I bought - Lamb shoulder - looked good.
When I cooked it up (braise), it wound up a bit tough, but I can't place all the blame on the meat. I'm no expert at cooking it, and I had a bunch of other dishes going (as well as dinner guests arriving), so I couldn't give it the attention it deserved.
