Baladi Halal Poultry | Midway City - Orange County

Not quite satisfied with my chicken purchases at Fresco https://www.chowhound.com/post/fresco... , I ventured out the next day to see Baladi in Midway City in the unincorporated section of Orange County. It sacrifices to order. However, I arrived at 3pm, too late to purchase a custom bird as the slaughtering hours are 9am to 2:30pm.

But I did not leave empty-handed, as they do have some dressed birds from the morning's fresh kill. I bought a brown rooster, chicken bones, feet and also a packet of Chinese soup herbs, saving me a trip to the Chinese supermarket. I asked for the rooster to be cut into quarters to make it easier to fit into the pressure cooker. The chicken bones are sold by the five-pound bag, but there was one small bag of only two pounds that I scored. These turned out to be entirely breast and rib cage bones with a good amount of meat still clinging to them. Unlike Fresco, the chicken feet still had the nails on them that I had to trim off myself.

The rooster made a delectable chicken stock. I would buy here again. Baladi has a wider range of poultry, including duck, guinea fowl, pigeon, goose, and rabbit.
