- cumin lamb burger at Xi'an Famous Foods

Lamb is one of my favorite foods, and so I order it often in restaurants. Excellent quality lamb chops are expensive, so finding them on a menu for less than $30 is difficult. For example, Keens' signature mutton chop, listed below, is $48. And their double lamb chops are $42.
You can sometimes find lamb chops on lunch menus at a cost to fit your budget since portions tend to be smaller. At Tulsi, Hemant's superb Tandoor-Grilled Lamb Chops are $34 at dinner but $24 at lunch.

Less expensive cuts of lamb and burgers made from those cuts will, of course, be cheaper.
On Maialino's lunch menu, Braised Lamb with Black Olives & Spinach is $23.
At DBGB, the Lamb Merguez is $14 at lunch and $15 at dinner.

The bar at Ma Peche serves lamb neck banh mi and and also charred rice noodles with spicy lamb, bok choy, and basil. Both are quite tasty.
I also like the lamb chops at Babbo and the Duo of Colorado Lamb at Hotel Griffou.
