[quote=“Gifthorse”]Anyone know where the best meat market is? I was considering picking up some kind of grill or BBQ if I can find a good one anywhere, but along with that I need good meat.
Not the thin sliced beef that looks like bacon. I haven’t really seen anything very good anywhere. I would be looking for leg of lamb chunks, steaks, pork chops etc.
If you want beef and don’t have a Costco card, try going to Carrefour in the morning. They get their big pieces of meat in the morning and cut them up to sell throughout the day. If you arrive early enough (say, before noon) they may have a large uncut piece left that you can get a 1kg or larger piece from, then cut your own steaks. The same is probably true of their pork.
As for lamb, that’s one of the few things I miss about Korea. I’ve never seen a halal shop (muslim food) or Indian food…but then, I’ve never really looked either. In Itaewon (Seoul), import shops (white/grey/black market) are easy to find.
