It used to be known as offal. But since some people thought offal was awful, the term variety meats is now used for the lesser known parts of the animal that people from many countries eat and heartily enjoy. At Boucherine Levinoff, a local Montreal company who have their own slaughterhouse, you can get fresh heart, tongue, tripe, oxtail, kidney, lung, liver, etc.
This wholesaler, open since 1951 and now with the 2nd generation at the helm, always has fresh beef, chicken, pork, and handmade Italian sausages. Freezer orders can be prepared at decent prices.
Their new upscale shop-at-home service is for certified Angus prime cuts (T-bone, rib roast, NY cut strip steak, rib steak or tenderloin); if you order $100 worth, there’s no delivery charge.
