Meat, Meat, and More Meat: Boucherie Al-Khair at Marché Jean-Talon in Montreal

This is part two of Butcher Al-Khair in the Jean-Talon Market in #Montreal. Part one was about teas, spices and cheese and today is all about meat!  My favorite merguez sausage sandwich get the sausage from this butcher.  Let’s examine all the various meat available at this wonderful place.  All the #sausages are made on site and smell fresh.

Tea, Spice, and Cheese in Marché Jean-Talon in Montreal: Boucherie Al-Khair

I go to Boucherie Al-Khair in Montreal to stock up on the spices: the Ras el hanout, Harissa, and anything that is middle-eastern and I cannot pronounce. I also go to the same butcher shop for my favorite sausage in the world, the merguez. That will be in an upcoming post. I love the authenticity of this shop. The store is always busy, filled with shoppers. I always feel like a kid in the candy store when I go there.

The harissa, the sardines from Morocco, and other stuff that I have not learned yet. Now I wish I understood Arabic.

Moroccan mint tea! One of my favorites.

Cheese – many are unfamiliar and unique to the cuisine.
