Baton Rouge butchery

  • 3

I'm looking for more unusual meats around the BR area. Particularly, I'm looking for things like sweetbreads, pork/beef hearts, raw pork shanks, cheek meat, other offal. Oh yeah, goat would be wonderful too. Most groceries have kidneys, oxtail, tripe,tongue, but I'm looking for a little more, and am willing to drive a bit out of the way for a good product. Does anyone have any advice?

Thanks!!

  1. Check with Babineaux's over in Henderson

    1. What about Bergeron's in Port Allen? I've never seen this type of thing in the cases there, but I imagine it all goes into the many varieties of sausage they make.

        Natco Meats, formerly on Magazine St. in New Orleans, is now located in Reserve. Contact a sales person there and see if they can deliver something to a BR restaurant for you.

        My husband is the business and a few years ago I got a lovely rack of domestic venison for Christmas. They do have a website, but don't list items
