Where can I get lamb? I know the crescent city farmer's market has it sometimes, but is there a grocery store that carries it on a regular basis?

  1. Kased Brothers Halal butcher shop, 3804 Williams St in Kenner, toward the back corner of a strip shopping center set at a right angle to Williams. Here's an article from 2010 about Kased Bros:

    1. Go to Cleaver & Co. on Baronne, about 3 blocks east of Napoleon Avenue. But bring lots of $, you will face myriad temptations beyond the lamb offerings.

        Haven't made my way there yet, can't wait! Thanks!

          Call ahead. Cleaver doesn't always have lamb.

      2. Went to Kased Bros this weekend---whole leg of lamb was $7.99/lb. They will cut/trim/grind/wrap it any way you like.

          Oh that's great! I was wondering the price. The price at CCFM was $10/lb for leg.

            Oasis Specialty Foods on Oaklawn Metairie is also a good source.

        2. Rouse's has had it consistently of late. Chops, shank, even steak and occasionally rack. Also Dorignac's is usually a good source. Those are both easy, although I must say, I'd bet good money a trip out to Kased would not be a waste of time.
