Armenian Meat Market throwdown: Karabagh vs Golden Farms vs Super King

blackbookali | Jan 24, 2014 03:47 PM

I'll start by reminiscing fondly over the day I discovered Golden Fish Meat and Deli in Hye Plaza back in the early 2000s. Floored by watching a man work a grill that resembled a foosball table, my tongue dropped when I saw that they would cook what you bought for the same "in house" butcher shop price. The only draw back was that they didn't have tahini sauce.

Now it is 2014.I have since learned how to make my own tahini sauce. Golden Fish, as I remembered it, is long gone. I have moved on and discovered the likes of Karabagh Meat Market, the zoo that is Super King, and as of an hour go, just made my first pilgrimage to Golden Farms. Each market is awesome in it's own right but short of conducting my own "side by side" grilling comparison, which of these three is the "best"? Also, while I can't remember the prices off the top of my head, Golden Farms charged $8 a pound for marinated boneless lamb - does that seem high? Further - is there a better place I have not mentioned that is the true king of Kabobs?
