Global meats

Anyone know anything about this place? Where is it? Can't find anything online about it. Was recommended to me.

  1. It is actually called Globe Meats .It is located at 65 Signet dr. I seriously thought because it is in the middle of nowhere,it would be much cheaper. they seem to have alot of clientele,mostly Italian.I was looking for a whole brisket and found one,but it was a flat brisket moslty lean,not a Packer brisket,which has a point and deckel.Also I did not like that they
    had a freezer full of all sorts of frozen meats,which makes me think that maybe they do not have such good business and freeze what they cannot sell.

    They also sell whole pieces of deli,and cheeses

    1. I've been there a couple of times, years ago, as I worked near there. I don't remember much, but nothing really blew me away about the place. I wouldn't make a special trip to get there, especially if you are, like I am, a transit rider. However if you're driving by the area it couldn't hurt to stop in and see.

      Spanglo has the right address, it's North of Finch on Signet, near the 400.

      1. OK; I am thinking I may head out to Vince Gasparro's instead. Thoughts? Never been there either. The thing with Global is that their lamb is australian which is not what I am looking for.

          Globe carries Ontario lamb too, I order it on a regular basis there as I have seen weekly deliveries myself. Great open concept butcher shop that lets me see everything from start to finish. Customized cutting and packaging also is really a bonus as I do not have too much room in my fridge in the condo. I get whole lambs for family events at my parents house and it always makes the party.

          How was Gasparros? Never seen any comments on that.
