Chowhounds weigh in on their favorite moderately-priced lamb dishes in town.
david kaplan likes the lamb burger at Bocadillos; two of them with a garnish salad are only $8. The cumin lamb at Old Mandarin Islamic, peppery and strongly cumin-y, is also recommended.

Chez Nous, a small plates place on Fillmore, serves simply-prepared lamb chops served with rosemary salt, perfectly cooked, says laaronson.
Helmand has one of the best racks of lamb in the city for only about $18, says Joan Kureczka; stonefruit also likes their seekh kabab, cubes of lamb not served on skewers.
Morton the Mousse loves the stewed lamb with charred eggplant at Aziza for $19.
The barbacoa at La Gran Chiquita is very tasty if you’re a lamb fan, says jmarek.
