Unusual Meat in the Mail

Here are some sources for unusual products. (If you’re on this list, and you’d like to send me samples, by all means…)

     

  • D’artagnan (Newark, NJ) is a pretty well-known supplier of packaged pàtés … in fact, my supermarket carries it for the holidays in the specialty cheese case … but I had no idea they also sell game meat for not completely outlandish prices.
  • Cajun Grocer (Lafayette, LA) is your source for authentic Cajun and Louisiana foods. I’ve bought from these guys before — andouille, boudin, chaurice. They also ship crawfish and turduckens.
  • Exotic Meats (San Antonio, TX) seems to sell the hardcore game stuff — antelope, elk, wild boar, even yak. Their prices seem a little high to me, but then, I don’t really know the going price for a good hunk of yak.
  • Lobel’s (New York, NY) is a high-end, high-class butcher. They offer more than my grocery store butcher, but at prices that make me lose my appetite. I bought a single hanger steak from them more than 5 years ago, as part of a promotion, and I’m still getting email from them. If you order from them, you’ll get a friend for life, I think.
