Ostrich in Central or Northern NJ
I am a huge fan of ostrich and am having no luck finding a place to buy any type of ostrich meat either in Central Jersey or Northern Jersey.
I used to buy the patties at a couple different Whole Foods but they no longer carry it, I believe because of the cost. Also, Fuddruckers used to have ostrich burgers but also due to cost no longer carry.
I may have to resort to looking into mail order but I was hoping there was some place that had it that would become my new source. If there were ever a place that would have this information, I am guessing it would be here.
Thanks a lot.
Fuddruckers on Rt 22 near the Bridgewater Mall Still has ostrich burgers. I ate one there two weeks ago.
I unfortunately did not have luck on my ventures to a couple different Kings, one in Bedminster area and other in Morristown. They said they did not carry it and used to on special occassions. Morristown actually recommended I try Shop Rite or CostCo but I know that is barking up the wrong tree.
Are there other King's that you all had referenced. I had my hopes up and now I'm still ostrich-less.
On to continue the search....
I am sorry you had some trouble. I shop at the Kings in Mendham, and have had no trouble. I do usually call in and order if I am definitely needing it on a specific day. Mendham is only about 15 minutes from the Bernardsville or Morristown stores, so hopefully it should not be too far out of your way. Mendham is great about special orders for ANYTHING, TBH. They are also very willing to custom cut stuff for me as well. Being it is only two of us, I get fresh turkey breasts, and have them cut it into 2 "halves" for roasting. I also have had them trim and cut whole tenderloins into steaks, and a whole pork loin into chops and a roast. They did it while I waited , cut and wrapped to my specifications/request. AWESOME! Give them a call....(973) 543-4493 and ask for the meat dept. for a special order.
