Young, pink Ontario lamb

We reeeaaaalllly dislike NZlamb (the smell and taste) and so I am always on the hunt for Ontario lamb (young, pink, good quality). Anyone want to share their source. I checked the SLM meat place (name escapes me, by the stairs Witt...) and we were not that pleased. Plus, many of their cuts are seasoned and cryovacked.

  1. Cumbrae's sources their lamb very carefully, usually S.W. Ont., but sometimes Q.C.

    A lot of people like the fresh Australian lamb at Costco, so that may be worth a shot.

    1. Try Bruno's expensive but good. Costco is now selling US lamb which has a stonger flavor than Ontario lamb but it's interesting.

        I second Bruno's, have had good Ontario lamb from there. The St Clair Market has good lamb too (I know it's really a Loblaws but the butcher is good.)

        1. Highland Farms and some Loblaws meat counters carry Ontario lamb but at a price. As others suggested, Costco is worth a look, too.
