Where to buy lamb in Houston?

The major grocery stores generally don't have much and it is usually overpriced. Sam's has a small selection, but no stew meat. I'm sure some of the halal markets are probably a good bet, but I'm not familiar with any of them. What is your favorite place to buy lamb in Houston?

  1. Perhaps Phoenecia Market on Westheimer?

    I always enjoyed the small cafeteria at Jerusalem Halal on Hillcroft, but that was for prepared food. I do know they have a good meat selection. Perhaps give it a try and let us know?

      Yes, Phoenecia Market has a nice lamb selection.

        Both Phoenicia and Jerusalem Halal have lamb. Every Halal market I've been into has it.

        Select your part of town then Markets.

        You also might try B&W on N. Shepherd outside the Loop and Pete's Fine Meats on Richmond in the Galleria area. Either one of those would be good if they have it.

          I wouldn't buy any animal that didn't previously moo or oink at B&W.

      2. Thanks for the ideas. I think I'll aslo try the new 99 Ranch.

        1. Pete's Fine Meats does have it. If you want something besides the popular cuts - lamb chops, leg of lamb, lamb shank, etc. - just call them a day ahead and ask them to cut you up some stew meat. They're happy to do it.
