The best butcher shop in Vancouver is Armando's in Granville Market. Not the cheapest but a great guy who knows his meats and cuts, how to cook them and which ones to choose for whichever dish you are making.

    We've been going to Armando's for years - excellent quality and service! We had them put together a turducken for us a few years ago - that was a meaty extravaganza!

      +1 on Armando's. Price-wise I think they're middle of the road, but value-wise I think they're above average.

      I don't go there as often as I used to. I tend to go to Windsor Meats or Famous Foods these days.

        I love them, just don't get to Granville Island very often.
