best spot to buy tongue?

trueblu | Jun 21, 2009 01:36 PM

For our first father's day (my wife is due to give birth imminently!), my wife decided to surprise me with one of my favourite dishes -- very, very slowly cooked beef tongue.

She went to our regular butchers, Dewar in Newton, to get the tongue. Having just partaken, I can say it was delicious. However, when I asked about where she bought it etc, I was surprised to hear that a) Dewar's only stock frozen tongue, since they don't get many customers for it and b) it was really qute pricey! She can't remember how much the tongue weighed, but let's call it 3-4 pounds. She paid just over $40 for it, which I thought was rather steep.

What's the going rate for good tongue these days, and where do CHers recommend to purchase it, preferably fresh.
