hajar's halal meats

I've been meaning to pick up some lamb lately, so the timing was perfect when Liane Faulder mentioned a local supplier on her blog a few days back. I drove up to Hajar's Halal Meats this morning to check things out and along with 2 pounds of fresh Alberta lamb, I snapped a couple of pictures.

The store is tiny but what space they have is jam packed with meaty goodness. I know Liane is planning an article, so it'll be interesting to hear what she has to say. I mentioned to Mr. Hajar that I read about the store online, and he declared I was the first customer to come in after his interview and mention it. He was friendly, and quite happy that I drove all the way from the south side.

There was a great neighborly vibe; he mentioned I should stop in next door and check out the treats at Paradiso Bakery. I'm sorry I didn't take any pictures because the goodies looked amazing and could probably push your blood sugar level to new highs!

I also walked into Elsafadi Bros Super Market next door for a quick peak, and walked out with 8lbs of strawberries for $5. So here I am; full of berry goodness and planning my lamb meal!

I'm glad to hear it's more than just delicious eye candy.
