Anyone know of a good butcher in Montreal that I can get a lamb or goat's head from?

    My mother in law makes a persian dish with a lamb head (kaleh pacheh), I'll ask here where she gets it from.

    Edit : she buys it from Akhavan

      That is logical, if she is Iranian or from another Persophone country... If only Akhavan weren't so far...

        There is also the one in the West Island, but I'm guessing that would be even further (for her its closer, so distance is relative ;) )

          Yes, if you have followed me at all, I live near JTM.

      I've also seen them at Al-Khair, on Jean-Talon just east of the market.

        I see them at Adonis quite frequently.

          Any butcher who slices your cut of choice off of a carcass should be able to sell you the head- most places where I have seen this have been halal.

          Our butcher is La Casbah, on BĂ©langer between 8th ave and St. Michel, and I have seen heads there, but it is not something I would count on them having without checking first..

            Boucherie Notre Dame, by Atwater will be able to get you one. Always good to call ahead for something like this.
